I just re-watched De Palma's 'Blow Out' after I mentioned it in a discussion on another thread a while back. Still as good as the first time around, if not better. It's a very 'De Palma-esque' film and you can see his little subtleties all the way through, and the ending still holds up well. I'm glad they kept it that way.
This film was heavily influenced by Michelangelo Antonioni's art house film 'Blow Up' from 1966. That's also worth watching, although 'Blow Out' is probably more entertaining, Blow Up is paced better and is much more careful in building up the story.

Argh, I hate that film! I mentioned it on the 'worst movie seen in theaters' thread. Just blergh.
