Jake, a struggling actor, is staying in his pal’s place after his girlfriend has walked out on him. The apartment happens to be equipped with a picture window and telescope, enabling him to spy on his beautiful neighbor Gloria, which leads to a baffling series of events with drastic consequences.
One of the most divisive auteurs out there takes the floor! The sublime and the sleazy hold hands in his work, intertwining to a point in which they become masterfully indiscernible. Body Double is pure De Palma joy: both irreverent and reverential, a sexy, stylish, twisted ode to Hitchcock.
