Dressed to Kill

Rating: 7/10

I don’t think I get Brian Depalma yet. The whole time I was watching this I was thinking about how even mid-tier giallo directors’ films are more interesting. The acting and dialogue is embarrassingly bad despite the stellar cast. The solution to the mystery was obvious very early on. I suppose there is a bit of style and envelope pushing in terms of subject matter. I read the subtext as a good girl wanting to be bad and a bad girl wanting to be good and a bad guy wanting to be a bad girl or something. I could be convinced otherwise, but for now this film was meh to me.
