I generally can’t stand the “it was all a dream” twist, but De Palma is commenting on this and playing with the structure and meaning and purpose of a “thriller.” She dreams the plot of the movie, including parts of other people’s lives she would have no idea about, and then, when it doesn’t work out, gets a sorta do-over. Same but different.
