Hitchcock, Murder, Kate Miller discussed on Cinephile: The Adnan Virk Movie Podcast

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

The way at one point. I was dying because D- And Charlie reference dolls talking about a split murders personality murder and Charlie doesn't listen. There's nothing more hackneyed than that serial coz split personalities. But he tries to be nice to Aphrodisiac dressed to kill and Donald conferences. I love dress to kill which I just watch for the first time. When Liz Blake by Nancy Allen Prostitutes? He's a mysterious woman brutally slay Kate Miller Angie Dickinson. She finds herself trapped in a dangerous situation. While the police think Liz the murderer of the real killer wants to silence a crimes. Only witness only. Kate's inventor's son. Peter played by Keith. Gordon believes Liz Liz team up to find the real culprit. Who has an unexpected means hiding identity and even more surprising motivation to kill? I enjoyed it. It's a movie that I think has been awfully dated because the main characters transgender and they've got a sequence at the end I mean is I rolling and little nausea inducing at the way. They tried to explain that the character when his penis gets hard. The female side takes over and then fields murder the male side because he's transitioning from male to female you know females body and just hates himself so much that he feels like he has two murders somebody when he becomes sexually aroused clearly is not going to play well and twenty twenty. Lgbt community and this was made forty years ago so the fortieth anniversary of it. I don't think that transgender character kills an attractive woman because their penis gets aroused and they're mad at the male side of themselves having said that in terms of tension implied invention is certainly enjoyable. It's what I would call a genre movie and it continues Brian. Depalma's obsession love with Alfred. Hitchcock it's a fascinating. Debate is diploma a great director because he takes hitchcock movies and then forms Zoll with DNA of Hitchcock. Or is it outright thief and a guy that makes hitchcock? He's all over again and just remakes them and doesn't have the originality of the first movie and then just earns the spoils of them. I don't know what the answer is. It really is each person's view because clearly watching drastically. Go Yeah this is psycho. This is psycho in one thousand nine hundred. There's a brutal slash and seen rather than in a shower. He puts an elevator. But it doesn't have Bernard Hermann score but you know right away like yeah man wearing a wig psycho again okay so Michael Caines going to be the Anthony Perkins character interesting but still it works because it's got enough moments that are certainly juicy and say this for diploma. I'm telling you as far as any director when you throw dialogue out the window. He's having a blast when the cameras just takes over like he's got a twelve minute sequence here fabulous no dialogue just one character track and the other think of Carlito's way what's the best part of the last ten minutes not as war to dialogue. It's just Pacino get raced to grand central station. You got that incredible shot in the escalator. I mean that whole sequences amazing the subway cars chasing the cars amazing. Then just to kill as well think of untouchables. What's the best thing of untouchables when the baby carriages going down the steps to slow motion? Which of course nod to the Odessa steps sequence in Sergei Eisenstein battleship Potemkin loves taking famous sequences famous movies and putting his own spin on them. That's reviews Roy so kind to him. Generally speaking I think in his later years it became a little bit too predictable. Fem fatale. Rebecca Romaine snake eyes with Nick Cage. Those just didn't work although raising Cain to me still has some moments with John. Lithgow Michael Blow at a Boston Globe dressed to kill as a nail biting seat squirming stylish murder mystery with a brain. Dave Care Chicago reader. Originality has never been a high value in the genre bound aesthetic of filmmaking but diploma cheapens. What he steals. There's my point there but in being a thief Roger Ebert Depalma's an artist of hitchcock stature. But he does earned the right to a comparison other go dressed to kill. Don't have you ever seen it Joe. A forty year anniversary of that movie. You know this is the the Palme blind spot that I have. I've never seen dressed to kill The cast it's looks great on it and you know me. I'm a big fan so I definitely will have to watch this. But did you catch the dressed to kill reference in adaptation? What he's talking about the twin brothers and he goes. Oh it's cybil meets dressed to kill. Donald SAYS I love dress to kill. It was great. Yeah he he goes. I love to kill until the Third Act dement and then that's not how it's pronounced. That's right dated great great one more by the way. I'm going to give dressed to kill. I'll give it three maple leafs like I said I was a little squirming at the end there but I did think it was enjoyable in various suspenseful all right one week before iron.
