  • Excerpt: Dr. Robert Elliott (Michael Caine) has a successful therapist’s practice, complete with a large base of clients, most of them female. When one of his female clients is brutally murdered with a razor, he is hesitant to become involved, especially in manners with the police. In turn, the police don’t seem too interested in the case on the whole, so the case is left open and little is done to look into it, beyond the simplest of tasks.

  • Excerpt: Brian De Palma’s Hitchcockian thriller starts off with a middle aged woman named Kate Miller (Angie Dickinson) in the shower. She lathers up and shows off the goods, heads out into the bedroom, and then feigns her enjoyment as her husband mounts her. Her marriage is dead and she knows it, but at least she got a cool kid out of the deal in the form of science geek Peter (Keith Gordon). Later that day she heads to her shrink’s office for her regular session with Dr.

Dressed to Kill (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: This is a fun, sleazy, vouyeuristic thriller that showcases the best and worst of Brian De Palma’s directorial tendencies.  As usual, he does nothing small which can work beautifully or make the final result so over the top that it becomes campy.  In this instance, De Palma toes the line between camp and over the top thriller, and manages to not cross over into unintentional hilarity which he failed to do with Scarface .

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: While not as shocking or controversial as it was during its initial theatrical run, 'Dressed to Kill' remains a highly stylish and impressively well-crafted mystery thriller from Brian De Palma. With strong performances by Michael Caine, Angie Dickinson, and Nancy Allen, the film is also a great study in composition and the Hitchcockian approach to suspense, making it a worthwhile watch more than 30 years later.

  • Excerpt: The Movie Angie Dickinson stars as a desperate housewife whose life takes a couple of unfortunate turns after a wild fling with a total stranger. The first is a major "Oh my God" bombshell, but the second has far greater consequences than that. And Dressed to Kill has no shortage of such twists upon twists, even if more than one element here is an homage to Hitchcock's Psycho .
  • Pros: Actors: Michael Caine, Angie Dickinson, Nancy Allen, Keith Gordon, Dennis Franz, David Margulies, Director: Brian DePalma, Audio Format/Languages: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 (English), Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono (French), Subtitles: English SDH, Spanish, French, Aspect Ratio: 2.35:1, Number of discs: 1, Rating: Unrated, Studio: MGM/Fox, Release Date: September 6, 2011, Run Time: 105 minutes, List Price: $24.99, Extras: "The Making of a Thriller" Unrated, R-Rated and TV-Rated...

  • Summary: September 6th is quite a week for Brian De Palma fans. Of course, there's the biggie—the highly anticipated Blu-ray debut of Scarface , which should please cinephiles, wannabe rappers, and coke dealers everywhere—but perhaps more exciting for a select group of film lovers is the release of De Palma's 1980 thriller Dressed to Kill , an erotically-charged minor masterpiece that courted several controversies when it was first show in theaters, from its use of full-frontal...
