Blow Out (1981)

Sharp and satisfying mid-period De Palma, with one of his tightest plots and some of his neatest camerawork. (The scene where John Travolta discovers that all his tapes have been erased is a dizzying, disorienting directorial tour de force.) This is a film that deserves rediscovery more than almost any other film from the '80s.

Grade: A-
