Product Description

WHAT THE DEVIL HATH JOINED TOGETHER LET NO MAN CUT ASUNDER!

Before 1973, Brian De Palma was impossible to pigeonhole: he made comedies, political satires and openly experimental pieces. But with Sisters (originally released as Blood Sisters in the UK) he turned to the suspense thriller and discovered his natural home - and a style that would lead directly to later masterpieces like (Carrie, Dressed to Kill and (Blow Out.

When Danielle (Margot Kidder) meets potential boyfriend Philip (Lisle Wilson) after appearing on the TV show Peeping Toms (a nod to the Michael Powell shocker), she invites him home, only to attract the ire of her twin sister Dominique. From across the courtyard, Rear Window style, reporter Grace (Jennifer Salt) witnesses Philip being murdered by one of the twins - but the police find no body or any physical evidence. Naturally, Grace takes things into her own hands, and discovers more about the sisters relationship than she bargained for...

Strongly influenced by Alfred Hitchcock and Roman Polanski, and with a score by the great Bernard Herrmann (Citizen Kane, Psycho), Sisters was the first true Brian De Palma film.

Some Thoughts About The Movie (NOT the base for my rating):
Wow! What a great movie, providing an astonishing visual and emotional experience. BRIAN DE PALMAS movie is creepy, full of tension and offers surprisingly shocking elements which continue to have an effect on its audience. The visual looks by choice of camera lenses, film stock, style, editing, timing including split screen techniques and camera angles are great and inspiring. Underpinned by the superb sounding and nifty composed soundtrack the result is breathtakingly good. The acting is convincing and there is a certain irony attached to the direction DE PALMA achieved. I wont spoil anything for you here and wont go into detail either because I like you to experience it all for your own and hopefully you will watch the movie detached from every other film-works out there. Enjoy!

No Grain Baby, No Gain / The Transfer:
The 2K transfer done for this BD set is very good. Spoken in terms of 2K I like to say it is nearly perfect. There is an overall organic and very film-like appeal to it. That fact underlines DE PALMAS design choices so good and enjoying this movie on a big screen or via projection is like seeing it for the first time ever for real. The grain structure seems to be 100% intact and looks and behaves totally film-like. The colors are fantastic and stable throughout the whole feature. Level of details, textures, grip, gray-levels and details in darker segments are awesome. Every frame here declares „I was shot on real film stock“. No noticeable DNR and edge enhancement filters have been applied!

Fantastic film, yes it is influenced by Hitchcock which is a common theme in De Palma flicks but people also seem to have not mentioned the Polanski influence of Repulsion.Despite this it does have a life of its own and is a very good thriller/horror. Lots of memorable and well directed scenes. Last part of the film is very surreal. I also found that there was great humor in certain scenes. The acting is first rate here particularly of William Finley. A masterpiece.

Sisters (1973) - Arrow's UK Blu Ray Reviewed by Darren Allison
CONTAINS SPOILERS - "The Next Alfred Hitchcock" was how director Brian De Palma was being celebrated by some back in 1973. It was largely in praise of his latest film, the thriller `Sisters'. There is little doubt that Sisters is not only homage to Hitchcock's Psycho, but also a huge nod towards Hitchcock's entire body of work. As the saying goes - `You only borrow from the best' and of course, it was no secret that De Palma was a huge admirer of Hitchcock's work.
`Sisters' was inspired by a Life Magazine article read by De Palma, about the Russian Siamese twins Masha and Dasha. The film begins with a model named Danielle (played by Margot Kidder), who appears on the local TV game show, Peeping Toms (the film's first example of its voyeuristic theme). Danielle goes out to dinner with the winning contestant, Phillip Wood. Her strange ex-husband Emile (De Palma regular William Finley) follows Danielle to the restaurant and finally creates a scene. Phillip takes Danielle back to her home in Staten Island. Emile keeps watch outside their apartment, as Danielle and Phillip spend the night together.
The next morning, Phillip is brutally killed (with a large Psycho style knife and in graphic detail) after overhearing Danielle speak to her sister, Dominique. The murder is seen by reporter Grace Collier (Jennifer Salt), from her own apartment (not unlike Hitchcock's Rear Window). The police are not entirely enamelled with Grace or her homicide story, perhaps because she had recently wrote a damming story on the Police Force. In true Hitchcock style, Grace takes it upon herself to investigate and is drawn into a bizarre story of Siamese siblings, a mysterious mental institute, and identifying the truth behind Dominique and Danielle.

Great movie. Beautiful release. I saw this film at the cinema many years ago and this copy looks sharper than it looked then. The story holds up well right to the end. I'd forgotten how it ended which made it feel as if I was watching a fresh new thriller for much of the running time. Herrmann's score catapault's you into a queasily thrilling world from the very opening. Worth watching and owning.
