Season 3: Episode 92 - DePalma's Obsession / Stoker
Brian dePalma's 1976 psychological thriller/mystery follows a New Orleans businessman who feels guilt after his wife and daughter die during a botched kidnapping. After many years, he falls in love with an exact look alike of his dead wife.
This would be the last film score of Bernard Herrman and the film would give a big nod towards Alfred Hitchcock as well.
There was some concerned over the complicated love story that would give pause to Columbia who held back the film for a year. The film would be the first successful box office success of dePalma which would lead to him directing his box office smash 'Carrie'.
This 2013 British-American psychological thriller drama film written by Wentworth Miller and directed by Park Chan-wook, was influenced by Bram Stoker and Alfred Hitchcock’s Shadow of a Doubt. The film tells the story of an 18 year old girl whose life changes with the arrival of her Uncle Charlie to events that will lead to the calamity of the family.
The film stars Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode and Nicole Kidman. The highly visual and artistic film would divide critics and audiences by its contrast of styles that are a departure from the directors normal style as seen in his Oldboy film. The film was posted in the top ten films of 2013 on numerous critics lists.
