Watch Body Double - Alternative Versions.
I was introduced to Brian De Palma at the rather tender age of 7, when
I watched The Untouchables with my parents. My friend Nicky and I
enjoyed it immensely and found the rousing tale of Elliot Ness et al.
an absolutely brilliant cop v. robber/adventure movie. Until Tim Burton
released Batman in 1989, Untouchables was our game of choice and we
would re-enact the entire movie in my back yard after school.
But I'm supposed to be talking about Body Double... To make a long
story short, since I was 7, I didn't know who Brian De Palma was, nor
did I really care, so I went about my cinephillic youth without
completely immersing myself in his oeuvre. I caught bits and pieces of
it, encountering Scarface as a fourteen-year-old and finding it
laughable, watching Sisters with (how apropos) my sister before I went
off to college and finding it intriguing, and finally seeing Femme
Fatale when it was released a couple years ago and thinking it amazing.
So, as you can see, I grew into De Palma and, since watching Femme
Fatale, I've gone back and watched many of his films (even Phantom of
the Paradise, which was an epiphany - go see it immediately). I
re-watched Scarface, Carrie, Blow-out, Wise Guys, the Untouchables,
etc. and then this week I saw Body Double at the video store. The cover
art, which is horrible, drew me in. I said, Jason, that cover art is so
tacky and the movie is called Body Double, it must be awful. Flipping
the case over, what should I find? De Palma.
Oh my. I scooped it up then and there, went home, and popped it in the
player. How had I not heard of this film? Probably because 2/3 of the
natural world finds it a trashy piece of filth. I find it brilliant.
It is your typical De Palma suspense thriller. Riffs on Hitchcock,
beautifully fluid camera movements, sexual 'dysfunction,' an
exploration of voyeurism, Hollywood satire, a convoluted and
endearingly unbelievable story...
So why watch it? Because unlike most movies Body Double cannot seem to
take itself too seriously. Body Double moves forward with a straight
face but, as evidenced by the Frankie Goes to Hollywood video somehow
slipped into this film and an awful rubber mask, De Palma's tongue is
so firmly in his cheek it's liable to break through the skin. Could a
film that's credits hearken back to the EC Comics font really intend to
be taken seriously? No. Oh, and for you scenesters out there, QT may
have found inspiration for his first film's title in Body Double's
final scene which, you guessed it, contains both a reservoir and dogs.
And yet, although the movie on some level parodies the preposterous
suspense thrillers of yore, it also never condescends to them. De Palma
directs this movie with such glee and exuberance, that you know he
loves those types of movies (well, I mean if Phantom of the Paradise,
Sisters, and Dressed to Kill hadn't let the cat out of the bag
Anyway, if you enjoy maverick directors unafraid of genre-pictures,
fun, and enormous drills, this is a movie for you. However, if you like
Lars Von Trier or other such beings who take themselves and their art
far too seriously at times, go elsewhere.
