De Palma's Doubles

De Palma’s Doubles

A master of suspense with a satirical-edge, the entertaining and multifaceted cinema of Brian De Palma continues to excite. Exploring his use of doubles, twins, and split-personalities we see both how he manifests mystery through hidden connections, and too the self-reflexive games between the audience and the film; voyeurs on and off-screen, self-referential modes and historic homage, split-screens and mirror-images as the whole thing doubles onto itself.
