Body Double

BFI Southbank

”Surely you can’t be serious - I am serious . . . and don’t call me Shirley”

Airplane

Sorry, but Body Double is either started or over at BFI Southbank.

Synopsis

Recently dumped and unemployed, actor Jake Scully (Wasson) becomes enthralled with a beautiful woman living across from the chic Hollywood home he’s house-sitting. While spying on her through a telescope, he witnesses her murder and becomes obsessed with finding the killer. Dismissed upon release, this stylish exploration of voyeurism and obsession remains one of De Palma’s underrated masterpieces.
