Sisters ★★★

i try and i try and i try so hard to love De Palma and it just never takes... FEMME FATALE remains the only one of his films i've enjoyed from start to finish, which is probably unwise to admit. the strange bit being that BDP's fetishes and fixations could not possibly dovetail more completely with my own... i just never seem to be having as much fun as he is.

that being said, the opening sequence, the sanitarium flashback, and of course the all-timer split-diopter sequences worked their magic on me.
