Romain at The Virtuoso of the 7th Art has posted a poll: vote for your favorite Brian De Palma film, now through October 7th. So far, Phantom Of The Paradise is in the lead with 31% of the votes. This poll may turn out to be somewhat surprising-- so far, The Black Dahlia has one vote, while Blow Out has zero. Also keep an eye out at Cinema Viewfinder for the De Palma Blog-A-Thon that begins today.

- I ended up voting for BLOW OUT, although I hesitated at both DRESSED TO KILL and RAISING CAIN.

- It's interesting to see some love for WISE GUYS there;  it is one of the only films I've ever walked out on at a theater.  (I seem to recall it was at about the same time as I walked out on SHE'S GOTTA HAVE IT - perhaps I was just in a bad mood that year?)  I really should check it out again; perhaps my aversion to the leads has subsided over time.

 - Finally got around to seeing HOME MOVIES last month and really, really enjoyed it.  I was taken aback by how autobiographical (in outline) the story was.  And I've always thought highly of Nancy Allen, but I was not prepared for how funny she was in this.  I've probably never enjoyed Gerrit Graham as much, either.

 - I think that BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES  is the only commercially-available De Palma film I've not seen.  Perhaps I'll be voting for it nextpoll!

I voted for Carrie, but of course Blow Out is a close second!  Seems like the latter is now in the lead. :)

Just thought I would point out (in case you want to post it on this page) that the Oaks Theater in Oakmont, PA is showing a double feature of Phantom of the Paradise and The Rocky Horror Picture Show on October 30th and 31st, starting at 10pm.  There isn't much info on their website, but I'm assuming it is going to be a 35mm print.  There's also going to be a live shadow cast for both films, which I'm not sure how I feel about concerning Phantom, but I'm sure it will be fun anyway.  http://theoakstheater.com
