Blow Out (1981)

Blow Out

Director: Brian De Palma

Writer: Brian De Palma

Going to make more of an effort to go back and see older De Palma stuff.  Criterion just put this out and I recently picked up the Blu Ray and I dug it.  The story is reminiscent of The Conversation but just barely.  Great directing from De Palma especially the final scene.  I LOVE that shot of Travolta holding Allen while the fireworks are going off.  A great thriller from the 80s.  Glad when Criterion mixes it up and doesn’t just release foreign art films I’ve never heard of.
