    Oh fuck, I can't vote. Both of these are absolutely superb. Body Double is not as good as Dressed to Kill, BUT it has that amazing Frankie Goes to Hollywood sequence that is one of the best scenes in any film I have ever seen. I can't vote against either of them.

    Body Double. This film beat out Scarface as my favorite DePalma film after I saw it. I also think it's his best shot film as well. Every scene is beautiful.

    Body Double is a very good film but Dressed is in a league of its own.

    I was really hoping Body Double would knock my socks off. But there's a reason Argento just continues to reign supreme with this kind of film.

    Though, compared to other De Palma, can anyone say another film had a better piece of theme music?



    Dressed to Kill is the better film (thanks chiefly to Nancy Allen, who is always awesome), hence why I voted for it.
