Body Double

BFI Southbank

”Love means never having to say you’re sorry”

Love Story

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


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.
