I used to think this was where the sinfully slick De Palma was born and the darker, angrier, and more political twin of his earlier movies was put to rest. But the truth is his predatory and acerbic half is in full effect here too, taking on any and all comers from the frivolous (perverted game shows, private eyes) to the still socially relevant decades later (cop racism, white liberal racism, birthday cake). Much like Dominique he never really died, lurking, sometimes almost invisibly, even in DP's most polished and commercial studio films. This, however, is their greatest collaboration.
