David Valkenet’s review:
I am not by any means a Brian DePalma fan, but this movie is fucking awesome.
Travolta's character is a foley sound effects recorder for bad horror films and there is an amazing scene early on when he's recording sounds in a park at night and we're shown the scene in a small number of static shots. We hear what Travolta hears through his microphone which fills out the mental picture of the location effortlessly. It's incredible how increasing one sense can bring a whole new level of perception.
Totally engrossing mystery with a fairly restrained (at least for DePalma) style. I think I only counted 4 or 5 split screens...
