Many saw Brian De Palma's Passion at film festivals last fall. Some of those viewers already placed Passion on their top 10 best lists for 2012. Now, knowing that De Palma's latest will be released in U.S. theaters next month, Cinema Viewfinder's Tony Dayoub has placed Passion on his midyear list of the best films (so far) of 2013. Here's what Dayoub posted about the film today:
"That this illogical but virtuosic movie still ranks so high despite the fact that I saw it at a press screening last September should tell you how strongly I believe in it. Detractors will scream at the movie's nonsensical plot holes. What, they never saw Dressed to Kill? If you allow De Palma to put you under the picture's dreamy thrall I guarantee you will be swept up by one hell of an erotic suspense thriller."
