An uneven return to suspense from De Palma yet enjoyable in the end. The cast is pretty good and the materials is better for the casting choices. There are a few great shots like the police station dolly and as typical De Palma goes, this one runs out of steam about half-way through.

Somewhat uneven effort by Brain De Palma which includes a number of his signature themes, including cross-dressing. The first half of the film is slow and almost lost me, but then the second half becomes more engaging with a decent, unexpected finish. The script for 'Raising Cain' probably worked better as a screenplay than it does as an actual film.

It was OK. The plotline concerning kidnapping kids for experimentation felt unnecessary. I enjoyed the nods to Psycho, but they felt out of place. And Lithgow felt somewhat miscast.
