BLOW OUT TOPS POLL AGAIN
BUT CARLITO MAKES CLOSE PLAY FOR RUNNER UP
Romain has posted the poll results of fans' favorite Brian De Palma film, and Blow Out has once again come out on top. The top three films, however, are only separated by a single percentage point. Romain reports that 304 people voted in the poll, and the results are a bit different than the poll run last month for Cinema Viewfinder's De Palma Blog-A-Thon. The Blog-A-Thon poll was less concentrated on De Palma fans, with its contributors presumably being film fans who may or may not consider themselves De Palma "fans." It is also worth noting that while one could only vote for a single definite favorite in Romain's poll, each voter in the Blog-A-Thon poll offered their top three choices.

In any case, it seems safe to say that Blow Out is the collective film of choice when speaking about De Palma. In Romain's new poll, Carlito's Way came in at number two (4th place in the Blog-A-Thon), followed very closely by Phantom Of The Paradise at number three (9th place in the Blog-A-Thon). Body Double showed a surprising resurgence in both polls, tying Dressed To Kill for the fourth spot in Romain's poll, and tying Femme Fatale for the fifth spot in the Blog-A-Thon. The Blog-A-Thon's number two film, Carrie, only came in at number eight in Romain's poll. Scarface and The Untouchables hover in the bottom of the top ten on both lists. In fact, the top ten of each poll include the same nine films in the top nine. Coming in at number ten on Romain's new poll is Casualties Of War (number 13 on the Blog-A-Thon). The Blog-A-Thon's number ten film, Sisters, did not even get a single vote in Romain's poll.

Blow Out wins again--no surprises there, that's where my vote went! I'm surprised that Casualties didnt rate higher on either poll though. I'm curious to know what you voted for Geoff?

Hi, Jeremy-- On this poll, I voted for PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE-- My top three faves are that, BLOW OUT, and CARRIE, so at any given moment, I could have voted any of those three for the top. When I voted, I happened to be feeling more PHANTOM than the other two.

 I am most surprised that BODY DOUBLE is so widely noted-- while I love that film, for me there are so many that are better: SISTERS, THE FURY, FEMME FATALE, DRESSED TO KILL. But BODY DOUBLE is solid, too, so who knows-- maybe one day I'll rank it up there, as well.

Yeah, I'm surprised Dressed to Kill isnt higher as well, and I'd say that the longer that goes by the more popular Femme Fatale should become. As a matter of interest I'd rank Femme Fatale and Casualties up there in my top three with Blow Out as well.

In France, Body Double is very appreciated, more than Femme Fatale for exemple. Myself, I voted for Body Double.

I also read on french forums people are disappointed of Carrie's place (7th).
