CRITIC MENTIONS "A VERY SPECIFIC TRIBUTE TO THE FASHIONS & HAIR OF DE PALMA'S 'BODY DOUBLE'"
I haven't yet seen Pedro Almodóvar's Julieta, which is currently making the rounds in select U.S. theaters, but Jason Shawhan's review at Nashville Scene mentions something curious regarding one of Brian De Palma's films:
Adapted from three short stories by Alice Munro, Julieta has a nimble structure, one that spans multiple time periods, family drama, cultural and religious conflict, the bonds of fidelity, and even a sexy train-based mystery with a very specific tribute to the fashions and hair of Brian DePalma’s Body Double. But its spine (and heart) is the chasm at the center of the titular character’s life left by the 12-year absence of her daughter Antía, and it’s a mystery we unravel one brightly colored thread at a time. The performances are stellar, with Emma Suárez and Adriana Ugarte bringing Julieta (as her older and younger selves, respectively) to tangible life. These women are the emotional foundation upon which Almodóvar builds another of his magnificent houses of catharsis, with the added bonus of an iconic return for Rossy DePalma.
