Femme Fatale


Dir. Brian De Palma. 2002, 114 mins. 35mm. With Rebecca Romijn, Antonio Banderas, Peter Coyote. Supermodel Romijn plays a blonde bombshell who takes on a new identity in De Palma’s brilliantly convoluted erotic thriller, a deceptive and sure-handed film that evokes Mulholland Drive as much as Hitchcock. Jonathan Rosenbaum has called it “a synthesis of every previous Brian De Palma film… I enjoyed every minute of it, maybe because De Palma took such obvious pleasure in putting it together.”

Tickets for Friday evening screenings: $12 ($9 for senior citizens and students / free for Museum members) and includes admission to the Museum’s galleries, which are open until 8:00 p.m.
