My parents used to drop my brother and I off at the video store instead of hiring a babysitter.

    Dressed to Kill


    Racist, misogynistic, transphobic. Deeply so and unjustifiably so. 

    It’s an interesting film beneath these odious attributes and De Palma remains a master but yeah, this movie reeks. 

    Watch Tenebrae instead.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.


    Second to last scene: *shows incompetent cop*
    Last scene: *incompetent cop and team save the day*

    What the fuck is with this ending. A film absolutely afraid to get cathartic even though the subject matter is made for it.

    Also, where does she get all this money? How does she have these underground connections? So confounding.
