Fri, Jul 5 at Midnight: Introduction by Jason Shawhan, senior film critic for the Nashville Scene. Cold Brew Boba available before the film | BUY TICKETS

While staying at the home of a friend (Los Angeles’ singular Chemosphere), an unemployed and voyeuristically-inclined actor (Craig Wasson) uncovers a violent conspiracy that threatens to take everything away from him — including his life. In homage to Hitchcock, De Palma nods to VERTIGO and REAR WINDOW, while adding a few grotesque touches all his own. With Melanie Griffith as Holly Body. Screening in celebration of the release of Ti West’s trilogy-capping L.A.–set slasher sleaze, MAXXXINE.

“BODY DOUBLE is an exhilarating exercise in pure filmmaking, a thriller in the Hitchcock tradition in which there's no particular point except that the hero is flawed, weak, and in terrible danger — and we identify with him completely.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“It’s a wicked, feature-length double entendre from a Doublemint era. Take it at face value, take it for its prurience or take it for all it’s worth. Hell, try taking on all three at once.” —Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine (Aug 29, 2006)
