Thanks James,
I seem to remember you love this film as well. I'm pretty much obsessed with it and picking just ten captures to highlight was tough.

Antonioni's Blowup, Coppola's The Conversation, and De Palma's Blow Out... what a fantastic lineage of essentially the same premise. But each film is so specifically representative of their respective director's body of work.

Damn...I've been wanting to see this for ages and just never come across the DVD. I just moved it to the top of my zip.ca list, so hopefully I'll get that corrected soon.

Great screencaps.

Pretty good movie even tho Nancy Allen can't act a lick.

Love this film and I wish it would receive a proper DVD treatment. It seems that De Palma is certainly amicable about revisiting his films on DVD...

But yeah, this a fantastic thriller and John Lithgow is suitably creepy. I also love the car chase through downtown Philly.

Nice pics, Jeremy.

It's still the only De Palma I can tolerate, but shit, I love it.

I find Blow Out difficult to sit through after Nancy Allen wakes up in the hospital. I just get restless waiting for something else to happen. A lot of that may be DePalma making a thriller that is anything but instantly gratifying. The filmmaking technique is beyond peer. I wish that DePalma would come back. Thanks for posting these, Jeremy.

Thanks everyone for the additional comments. I've made no secret of my admiration for De Palma here so it was great to pay tribute to probably my favorite film from him (although it is a close call for me between this and one or two others)
