General information

Rated 3 out of 5

“Body Double” is a 1984 thriller movie directed by Brian De Palma. The movie stars Craig Wasson as Jake Scully, an unemployed actor who witnesses a murder and becomes obsessed with the woman who he believes is the killer’s next target.

The movie received mixed reviews upon its release, but has since gained a cult following. While some critics have praised the film for its suspenseful plot and stylish direction, others have criticized it for its explicit sexual content and perceived misogyny.

One of the strengths of “Body Double” is its use of visual storytelling. De Palma is known for his use of long, uninterrupted takes and intricate camera movements, and this movie is no exception. The opening sequence, which follows Jake as he performs a scene on a movie set and then returns to his dressing room, is a masterclass in visual storytelling. Through De Palma’s use of camera movement and editing, we get a sense of Jake’s isolation and vulnerability.

The plot of “Body Double” is also engaging, with plenty of twists and turns to keep the audience guessing. However, the movie’s treatment of women has been criticized by some as misogynistic. The female characters are often objectified and sexualized, and the movie’s climax involves a violent confrontation between two women that some viewers may find troubling.

Overall, “Body Double” is a visually stunning and suspenseful thriller, but its treatment of women may be a turn-off for some viewers. If you’re a fan of Brian De Palma’s work or enjoy twisty thrillers, it’s worth a watch. However, if you’re sensitive to sexualized violence or misogyny in movies, you may want to give this one a pass.
