One of his early and successful works. pity that this kind of art is practically obsolete nowadays...
Obsession is a moving, dreamlike, and suspenseful thriller; a masterfully crafted film that has De Palma the top of his game.
Ultimately the story is good but as a movie it is a crashing bore to witness. Genevieve Bujold is her usual magnetic self but even she cant elevate this most boring of all De Palma movies.
Rip-off of Vertigo that has none of that film's enigma, psychology or even masterful camerawork. What the film does have is trashy fun, a ludicrous twist and a superb music score.
Worth watching if you're a die-hard, but it's really not one of his best, or even one of his good ones per se. There's good things in it but eh.

7.2/10. my review: http://wp.me/p1eXom-2ad
De Palma only became original after this film. Upon re-watch all the actors did a fine job here, particularly Lithgow and Robertson. This is a serious film, and that's difficult to see but it is, which immediately lends its ambition and influence to Hitchcock.
I'll try watching this again eventually but I couldn't get into it. 30 min and I wasn't liking it, I usually stick with a movie but I am normally very impressed with De Palma movies from the start and with 30 min the only thing that stuck out to me was the great score.
Very twisty thriller. Not my favorite Depalma, but it seems to have quite a following. Still good, I think it may have just been the over-the-top score that was offputting... I wonder if the writers of oldboy were inspired by this at all...
