Directed by Brian De Palma

United States 1972 93 mins. In English

Inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope, Psycho, and Rear Window, and featuring a score by Hitch’s regular collaborator Bernard Herrmann, Sisters stars a pre-fame Margot Kidder as a woman suffering from separation anxiety and Jennifer Salt (Play It Again, Sam) as the reporter who sees a murder play out through a window in the building across from her apartment. “Part of the fun is watching De Palma recombine Hitchcock plots with his own voyeuristic obsessions.”—Jesse Hassenger, The A.V. Club.
