SISTERS * 1973 * Directed by Brian De Palma * 93 minutes * In English

This "terrifyingly twisted cult classic" was actually the first film...
to give director Brian De Palma (Scarface, Carrie) international acclaim. It made a huge impact on the independent film circuit when it came out, but these days it's overshadowed by Brian De Palma's later big budget productions. Despite this, it remains one of the director's best films.... and what it lacked in budget it made up for with enthusiasm and creativity (and I will take creativity over big budget any day!).

I don't want to say very much about the plot, but its an eerie film that centers on two siamese twin sisters who were separated at birth..... and a woman who, while looking out her apartment window, witnesses a grizzly murder that has taken place. Brian De Palma has often been under the influence of Hitchcock, and here this aesthetic is perhaps executed better than any other film he made. This film initiates a facet he will continue to use in his next few movies—a split screen device where you see a single action from two radically different points of view. For me, this is an aspect of cinema that has barely been explored, and should be because it can be so mind-expanding.

This flick is sharp, thrilling, weird.... and it even blasts with a great musical score composed by the legendary Bernard Hermann (Psycho). It's yet another cult masterpiece that hasn't been shown in a theatre for ages.... when I look around at what is available in the cinemas today, all I can say is: "We're being robbed!"

This will be a high-definition projection.
