Notebook Reviews: BLOW OUT

4 out of 5 stars

Brian De Palma – 1981

Blow Out is a first rate thriller from the masterful Brian De Palma – it’s one of his best. John Travolta delivers a great performance as the movie sound man who thinks he has recorded a murder, while there’s wonderful support from John Lithgow, Nancy Allen and Dennis Franz. 

Shot with De Palma’s trademark over-the-top style, Blow Out is gloriously filmed by cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond with a great soundtrack from Pino Donaggio.
