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!

Have fond memories of watching this on VHS as a teenager! De Palma at his outrageous best, with incredible camerawork, a barmy script and riffing on Hitchcock's Psycho.

This looks fantastic on Blu-ray and for me it was like watching the film for the first time! And Pino Donnagio's gorgeous music has never sounded so good!

Great extras, with interviews with all the cast and the outspoken and always controversial DePalma

De Palma has always been a visual storyteller. See the museum scene with Angie Dickinson to get a practical understanding of what I mean - it’s almost nine minutes of pure drama without any dialogue. It sets a precedent for a film that’s basically an American-made giallo infused with Hitchcockian style.

It’s visually captivating, throwing split screen, split lens, amazing camera movements and deep focus techniques at the viewer in both striking and understated ways. If judged on style alone it'd get top marks without hesitation. But there are other considerations. Some of the cast, for example, were a little too inexperienced for the role they were asked to play. Nevertheless, early De Palma is best De Palma, and Dressed to Kill is one of the essential ones. The Arrow Video blu-ray is the best I've ever seen it look, and it's the unrated, uncut version!

Not my favourite De Palma but still a classic. It has a strange structure: first half seems to follow a character, secondo half is an investigation about first half story. It reminds a lot of Psycho. There are some holes in the script but the overall atmosphere and some scenes are truly fantastic and visually powerful. A very good blu ray remastering

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.
