2012 in Film: #52

The Untouchables (1987) | Directed by Brian De Palma

Grade: B+

Thoughts: Paying homage to classic gangster flicks from the likes of Wilder and Hawks, De Palma’s gem is just as its title suggests in terms of quality and stunning performances. After having seen the “Odessa Steps” sequence parodied and recreated so many times, it’s a rare film like this that can pull it off with such elegance.
