This was a... friendly reminder to never underestimate the power of Brian De Palma. His collaboration with Paul Schrader here fit like a glove, and together they crafted a breakneck thriller

Obsession endures because De Palma fanatics can see the origins of the director's obsessions make their way on to the screen.

The fun in Obsession comes not from its plot but from its sweeping passions.
