Sisters (1973)
First screened in July 2014
Director: Brian De Palma. Cast: Margot Kidder, Jennifer Salt, William Finley, Lisle Wilson, Barnard Hughes, Charles Durning, Dolph Sweet, Mary Davenport, Burt Richards, Catherine Gaffigan, Olympia Dukakis. Screenplay: Brian De Palma and Louisa Rose.

Twitter Capsule: Enjoyably nutso gimcrack but most elements underexploited. Kidder an absent center. Side players, audacious images sell it.

VOR:   De Palma blatantly rifles through his bag of favorite Hitchcock tricks, though at least they mostly work. His own conceptions are uneven but at least they're out on a limb.
