Blow Out

( 4 )

Overview

One of Brian De Palma's best movies, Blow Out has been beautifully transferred onto DVD even if this MGM edition doesn't come with all the extras that its definitive release of Dressed to Kill does. The anamorphic widescreen transfer is flawless and the Dolby Digital 2.0 audio transfer is well balanced and clean. De Palma has often been accused of being an emotionless filmmaker and in the course of this taut, paranoid thriller, soundman John Travolta eventually disengages from the real world, more interested in ...

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Blow Out is Brian DePalma's glossy send-up of Michelangelo Antonioni's 1960s art-house classic Blow-Up. In Blow-Up, a London fashion photographer unwittingly shoots footage of a murder plot; in Blow Out, a movie sound technician records a killing that's part of a wide-ranging political conspiracy. The intricate plot is typical of DePalma and has unmistakable parallels with Francis Ford Coppola's The Conversation (1974), also a version of Blow-Up. The cast includes John Travolta in his first serious major role, as well as DePalma favorites John Lithgow and Nancy Allen, in her last memorable part. Blow Out has all of DePalma's flashy camera techniques but keeps the director's customary gratuitous violence under some control. Most critics thought it was one of his most successful and intriguing films, though it didn't do well at the box office.

    Brian De Palma’s most original and best work.

    Blow Out is a political conspiracy/ murder mystery. This is John Travolta at his finest, outside of Pulp Fiction. The most interesting thing about this movie is how Travolta’s character tries piecing all the evidence of this mystery together, just as he would if he were making a movie. If you want to see what, according to Quentin Tarantino, got John Travolta cast in Pulp Fiction, you have to check out this flick.
