  • One of the best movies of De Palma, a formal masterpiece.
    December 7, 1998
    A completely new movie, where form and vision become the substance of a story of dissolution of a consciousness and of a world. Double characters and multiple points of perception, an opening scene technically stunning and artistically perfect, centered on an indirect perceiver (Cage) while everything happens on the background. Multiple endings (in every sense) and an extremely rigorous style up to the last image. Split screen sequences as a poetic synthesis of truth, and a completely new relationship between subjective and objective reality. Abstract cinema at its best, and a real post-modern nightmare.
