Classic 70'S thriller
- Dressed to Kill review by Spoons
Brian De Palma's Dressed To Kill still stands up today as a sizziling piece of film making. Most people know the story but if for some reason this has passed you by then I urge you to check it out. It has all the classic De Palma ingredients, eroticism, set pieces, split screen and a haunting score. Angie Dickinson oozes sex appeal in the little screen time she has. Michael Caine is....well, Michael Caine and Nancy Allen looks terrific. 70's cinema at it's best.
