BLOW OUT
1981, Park Circus/MGM, 107 min, USA, Dir: Brian De Palma

John Travolta gives one of his best performances as Jack Terry, a sound-effects man in the wrong place at the wrong time, who accidentally records a fatal car crash that might be a hushed-up political assassination. Combining forces with escort Sally (Nancy Allen) - an eyewitness with an, er, intimate knowledge of the crash - Jack begins piecing together the whitewashed incident, even as his and Sally’s lives become increasingly endangered. A brashly stylish reflection on the corruption of American patriotism and politics from director Brian De Palma. With John Lithgow.

INFERNO (1980)
1980, 20th Century Fox, 106 min, Italy, Dir: Dario Argento

Originally unreleased in the U.S., this was the second part of a never-finished trilogy (with SUSPIRIA) about the Three Mothers, who rule the world with "sorrow, darkness and tears." Here, Argento delights in the orchestration of elements -- bloody hands on curtains, dusty volumes of arcane knowledge -- transforming INFERNO’s apartment building into a demonic theatrical tableaux. “Argento’s world is a lushly horrific one, painted with broad stripes of lurid color, housed in labyrinthian mansions and peopled by beings whose senses quiver and tense at the evils ordinary humans can’t perceive.” - Hazel-Dawn Dumpert, L.A. Weekly.


INFERNO is the English dubbed version.
