After the disaster that was The Bonfire of the Vanities, Brian De Palma returns to his bread and butter, Hitchcockian suspence. This self-penned thriller about a child psychologist who struggles to control his multiple personalities draws influence from Psycho. John Lithgow gives an enjoyably bonkers performance. De Palma deploys his entire box of cinematic tricks to tell this story, which often doesn't make any sense.
