Phantom of the Paradise ★★★★½

De Palma goes Rocky Horror and outdoes it in every single way. What a ride of a film. The tragedy of a man trying to regain the art and the love that was stolen from him. De Palma crafts one of the most glorious, batshit films ever made. It touts an amazing soundtrack and incredible performances from Jessica Harper and William Finley. If any film deserves cult status, it's this.
