A spectacularly sleazy send-up that finds the puckish, thin-skinned director confronting his critics and doubling down on everything that upstanding, respectable people hate about Brian De Palma films.

Is Body Double Brian De Palma's most underrated film or merely a guilty pleasure on my part? Naturally, I make the case for the former.

It's a mystery, a romance, a horror flick, and a straight-faced parody all rolled into one unique little movie.

Body Double, while not his finest, is the best candidate as Brian De Palma's signature film.

Another sexed-up Hitchcockian thriller from Brian De Palma. Plays much better today than it did in 1984.

A gripping murder mystery in which director Brian De Palma offers sly tributes to Alfred Hitchcock.
