Brian De Palma Verenigde Staten, 1972

Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Sisters

Being part of the post-modern movement allowed De Palma to mix Hitchcock's best trademark's (bets-off suspense/dark humor/narrative and emotional hook/intriguing-but-flawed characters) to odd proportions. Both understood that once they have your emotions with these elements, they can take their plot off-the-rails. De Palma isn't as narrowly-focused and conservative as Hitch, uniquely suiting the material.
