Dressed to Kill

Geregisseerd door Brian De Palma
Verenigde Staten, 1980
Mysterie, Thriller


At once tongue-in-cheek and scary as hell, Dressed to Kill revolves around the grisly murder of a woman in Manhattan, and what happens when her psychiatrist, her brainiac teenage son, and the prostitute who witnessed the crime try to piece together what happened while the killer remains at large.

The film opens like a diamond reflecting light in many directions, inside the Day-Glo ambience of a bedroom, bathed in the immortal sound-sphere of Pino Dinnaggio’s soft-core string arrangements; the mind is where this film begins and ends. The glare of light pierces through the skin of this film like a sharpened razor, tearing at the fabric of the illusion. No other filmmaker, other than Godard, has played so much with what we as viewers perceive as the surface.

It is such obvious surface, but the surface goes on for miles. As a formalist, Mr. De Palma repeatedly cast his lot with the films of Alfred Hitchcock — in “Blow Out,” “Body Double” and “Raising Cain,” too. The museum sequence is like an exhibitionist “Vertigo” whipping open its trench coat and flashing its great big Judith Krantz.

Mr. De Palma has made more coherent movies than “Dressed to Kill” (namely “Carrie” and “Blow Out”) during his long career, but few have been so technically accomplished, felt more personal or raised more hackles: “Dressed to Kill” had to be recut to avoid an X rating and, along with William Friedkin’s “Cruising,” which opened the same summer, was attacked for its stereotyping.
