A dead end -- the mark of a superficial stylist unable to take anything seriously, including his own work.
There is much early evidence of [De Palma's] rampant misogyny, his increasingly blatant stealings from Hitchcock, and most unforgivable of all, his clear distaste for the people he creates.
Just the thing to see on one of those nights when you want to go to the movies for the old-fashioned fun of it.
De Palma's operation is one of (film history) memory reconstruction and transference
A spooky and thematically rich thriller, one that explores the psyche (with an evils-of-racism subtext) without drifting into heavy-handedness.
Sisters is pretty close to being director Brian De Palma's signature film.
De Palma's first foray into Hitchcock territory is a diabolical delight.
An undeniably tight homage to Hitchcock, but I'm still inclined to place it at least a tier below the likes of Dressed to Kill and Body Double.
It's the first Hitchcock homage that Brian De Palma directed, and it's a doozy.
It's all about technique, and if you like the technique he's using, you'll like the film.
makes up in visual ingenuity what it lacks in budget
...a good mystery with comic overtones, shifting points of view, several surprises, a few shocks, and plenty of suspense.
Audience Reviews for Sisters
- Emil Breton: To Danielle before police arrive. Put on some makeup. It must look as though nothing has happened.
