Format: DVD
A typical day in New York City. Psychiatrist Dr Elliot (Michael Caine) listens to Kate (Angie Dickinson) outlining her marital problems before she wanders off to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and picks up a mysterious stranger. Meanwhile, disturbed cross-dresser Bobby is ringing Dr Elliot and threatening to carve up his patients. And an uptown hooker (Nancy Allen) is turning tricks to fund her investment portfolio.
Brian de Palma's glossy and gratuitous cult classic is an unashamed homage to Alfred Hitchcock - not just one shower scene, but two - and has some marvellous set pieces. Especially the minor ones - check out the accusing looks of the little girl in the elevator when Kate heads home from her afternoon tryst with a lover.
A word of warning on the DVD available in the UK though. Unfortunately, this DVD has no screen set-up extras to allow you to choose the viewing format (though there are 5 language options and scene-selection). It is made to be viewed on a widescreen TV. It plays at 16:9 ratio on a standard TV, but this is not a pan-and-scan version, so you miss bits from the edge. It only REALLY interferes with a couple of scenes, when you get half the face of a character talking, but is an obvious flaw, not to mention a distraction, if you are a fan of the film. It comes with the original theatrical trailer.

Brian De Palma made a brilliant psycological horror in DRESSED TO KILL. Well done to Arrow for releasing this fine film on UK blu ray and UNCUT.
I already have the R1 Sp. Ed. and Region Free US blu ray but this is the best version especially as regards to extras imo.
The pq and sound are very good with a nice booklet as usual by Arrow but as with a lot of their blu rays and dvds I change the covers and for DTK you have the original artwork as on the 1980 poster.
it's a shame Michael Caine who is good in this (Sean Connery was after the role!) is not featured in the extras.....which is like John Travolta not in the recent Arrow blu ray of BLOW OUT.
Why not? Was the money not enough?
Rant aside this is an excellent film and you've got a good reason (if you haven't already) to see DePalma's classic thriller UNCUT!

In my opinion 'Dressed to Kill' has always been a cinematic masterpiece! Though it has often been identified as a title that mimicked 'Psycho' in many ways, Brian DePalma's direction, the acting talents of the cast, and Pino Donaggio's terrific music score make this one a winner!
I already own the title on blu-ray from Fox and MGM here in the U.S. But the reason I purchased the Region 'B' UK release was just to have the original mono soundtrack in PCM. Though the 5.1 mix is enhanced and accurate, the original mono mix is native to this release. I love both of them! The UK picture quality is just a tad inferior to the U.S. release and the 5.1 UK soundtrack is not quite as aggressive as the U.S. version. But the mono soundtrack is 'Right ON'!!
If you are a fan of the release as much as I am, and you have a region free blu-ray player, I don't think you will be disappointed!

Kate Miller is an unfulfilled wife and mother, she loves her husband and son, but her husband does not satisfy her sexually. She goes to see her psychiatrist, Dr Robert Elliott, and expresses her frustration with her husband's "useless performance", before attempting to seduce him into sleeping with her. Dr Elliott explains that he loves his wife and it wouldn't be worth risking his marriage, and Kate seems even more depressed. She later goes to the Metropolitan Museum where she flirts with a mysterious stranger, leading to her getting in a cab with him and they begin to have sex which resumes once they reach his apartment. With the man asleep, Kate decides to slip out but not before leaving the man a note. She then discovers a letter confirming that he has a venereal disease, absolutely mortified, she quickly leaves the apartment forgetting her wedding ring. Whilst in the lift, Kate realises she's missing her ring and decides to return to retrieve it. When the elevator doors open, she's met by a tall, blonde woman with sunglasses wielding a razor. The woman enters the lift and begins to slash away at Kate, as a call girl and her client await the lift on another floor. The lift opens to reveal a bloodied and dying Kate, with the mysterious blonde hiding inside. The client panics and runs away, whilst the scared call girl sees the woman's face in the mirror before the doors close.

Dr Elliott later receives a phone call from a patient called Bobbi, Bobbi is transgender and tells the Dr that she has stolen his razor and killed a woman. Bobbi tells the Dr that a young woman saw her, and now she'll have to deal with her.

Dressed to Kill is directed and written by Brian De Palma. It stars Michael Caine, Angie Dickinson, Nancy Allen, Keith Gordon and Dennis Franz. Music is by Pino Donaggio and cinematography by Ralf D. Bode.

Brian De Palma continues his commitment to Hitchcock thrillers with this erotic and lurid slice of entertainment pie. Plot in short order finds a razor wielding blonde woman on the loose in the city. A high class prostitute, a psychiatrist and the son of a victim try to solve the mystery before they themselves fall to the blonde killer.

De Palma throws it all at the audience here, merrily pushing people's buttons as he goes. He uses all the tools and tricks of his trade for maximum impact, blending a number of genre staples and churning out a hyper stylised neo-noir that gleefully toys with audience expectations. Oh the plot is bonkers, deliriously so, but De Palma is a crafty pro who deftly marries up the excesses of the plot with virtuoso camera work, and not content with that he then brings Donaggio's musical score into play to ensure the viewer's senses are tingling.

Unsurprisingly for the director, Dressed to Kill is sexually charged and violent, from the steamy beginning that ruffled feathers in a number of quarters, to the outrageous coda at the end where De Palma homage's himself, it's a film revelling in its schlocky being. However, it still has time for dramatic suspense and dangerously sensual mysticism, reference an extended section of film that sees Allen's hooker pursued relentlessly through the perils of the subway system, and a sequence played out at an art gallery without dialogue as we become Dickinson's disoriented eyes.
