Audience Reviews for Raising Cain
While not quite as crazy it's main character(s), Raising Cain has some pretty nuts twists and turns. Not DePalma's best, but far from his worst too.
A misunderstood movie that is almost as bizarre and comical in nature as Body Double. Brian De Palma‚??s style really shines here, due to the fact that he plays perfectly with insanity. His shots make sense more than they do in some of his other work. To make this what it is though, it wouldn‚??t be complete without someone like John Lithgow. He gives such a scarily funny performance(s) as a man gone crazy in four different ways. The plot is very much a homage to Psycho, but even more on the edge of insanity. Whether it‚??s kidnapping babies or dressing like Margot, Carter is quite the multiple personalities victim. I would only suggest watching it if you get Brian De Palma‚??s style, otherwise you will be completely lost and write it off as silly.
Very good, once I could figure out what was going on!
