2019 FILM OF THE DAY (WEEKLY RECAP #3)

We kinda fucked up on our instagram by posting ‘Day 15’ twice (if anyone caught that), but here’s our recap of week 3 of our Film of the Day series!!

Day 15: Body Double   - Body Double  might be the most fun film in Brian De Palma’s lengthy filmography. This modern melding of Hitchcock’s  Rear Window  and  Vertigo  creates an original story about a voyeur who witnesses a murder in his neighbor’s window… I’ve watched this film 3 times this week alone.  *FILM OF THE WEEK

Day 17: Saboteur  - Hitchock’s  Saboteur  follows a factory worker who’s been framed for the murder of his friend in a fire started in the factory they work in.

Day 18: Femme Fatale  - Another Day, another De Palma film…  Femme Fatale  may not go down as one of the most memorable De Palma films, it does take an interesting narrative and brings the whole film full circle, only the way De Palma could.
