I'm not sure if it is best to know or not to know what the film is about, except that Clooney, Tarantino and Keitel are in it, and that it's pretty violent. Take a pick.
Watched it as a sort of recommendation from Tarantino's top favorites list. Apart from some of the 70s/80s tropes such as its exaggerated choice and placement of music, I really enjoyed Blow Out's the style and cinematography.
But the 3rd act absolutely destroyed it for me. Jeez!
Basically it feels like De Palma had an idea about how the ending should've been, but he didn't know how to get there naturally. What he did then was to create an excuse…
