CCU17: Dressed to Kill (1980)

Aaron and Mark talk about Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Brian De Palma’s 1980 sensual thriller, Dressed to Kill. We go into De Palma and how he’s just a film buff that is able to make movies, plus we investigate the expression of sexuality through therapy, and how De Palma was able to use film language to convey his character’s desires. And of course, we talk about the iconic museum scene. Show notes:
