Two Line Reviews - #220

Movie: Dressed to Kill (1980)

Plot: A woman is murdered in an elevator by her own doctor's fellow patient and the murderer is after a witness to the murder; Police and the murdered victim's nerd son track the murderer in parallel leading to riveting revelations in the end.

  • Brian De Palma seems to be a suspense master and here too he keeps the viewer guessing with his thrills.
  • The roles of the witness,student and the psychiatrist are the ones that make a mark.
  • The conversations in the police interrogation scenes are especially good.
  • The final climax is fitting to the genre the film is set in.
There is quite a bit of sleaze over the cut-off we normally give to good films.

A Sleazy & Suspenseful Thriller.
