Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

In the enthralling Blow Out, brilliantly crafted by Brian De Palma (Sisters, Carrie, Scarface), John Travolta (Saturday Night Fever, Pulp Fiction) gives one of his greatest performances, as Jack, a movie sound-effects man who believes he has accidentally recorded a political assassination.  He enlists the help of Sally (played by Carrie’s Nancy Allen), a possible eyewitness to the crime who may be in danger herself, to uncover the truth.

With its jolting stylistic flourishes, intricate plot, profoundly felt characterizations, and gritty evocation of early-1980s Philadelphia, Blow Out is an American paranoia thriller unlike any other, as well as a devilish reflection on the act of moviemaking.

Amazing

I had never seen this movie before and what better way to first experience this Brian De Palma classic than with the Criterion edition from Zavvi. Needless to say I enjoyed it extremely so and this is now ranking in my favourite of De Palma’s movies. Not my first pre order from Zavvi and not my last.
