Metacritic

80

This 1981 release is one of Brian De Palma's more interesting and better-made thrillers, though it's even more abjectly derivative than his Hitchcock imitations (borrowing mightily this time from Antonioni's Blowup, as the title suggests).

A conspiracy thriller as euphorically entertaining as it is devastatingly bleak.
