• Brian DePalma, say what you will, still maintains the power to shock. He's made stinkers like Mission To Mars and Snake Eyes, and you start to think he doesn't have the magic anymore. Then, he comes through with Femme Fatale, an almost silent homage to the "bad girl" film noir films of the 40's and 50's. He even reinvents the "twist" ending we've all gotten so sick of these past few years.

    His twist ending actually makes the movie better.
