In the enthralling Blow Out, brilliantly crafted by Brian De Palma (Sisters, Carrie, Scarface), John Travolta (Saturday Night Fever, Pulp Fiction) gives one of his greatest performances, as Jack, a movie sound-effects man who believes he has accidentally recorded a political assassination. He enlists the help of Sally (played by Carrie’s Nancy Allen), a possible eyewitness to the crime who may be in danger herself, to uncover the truth. With its jolting stylistic flourishes, intricate plot, profoundly felt characterizations, and gritty evocation of early-1980s Philadelphia, Blow Out is an American paranoia thriller unlike any other, as well as a devilish reflection on the act of moviemaking.
It has been many years since I have watched this film. But I remember it very well and thought it was John Travolta's best film. Read morePublished 1 month ago by kelly Groce

One of Brian DePalma's best. Uses all of his signature directorial flourishes to great effect. Travolta, Allen and Lithgow give fantastic performances. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Glen Johnson
I actually think this is Travolta's best movie. It is small in budget. It is early in his career. It is a well written plot. I love it.Published 7 months ago by Wayne Crenwelge

It seems he just doesn't like doing commentaries. This Criterion edition of Blow Out does include a 1 hour interview with De Palma by filmmaker Noah Baumbach.

|Region 1 (U.S. and Canada only)||
Amazon's "Region 1" or "US and Canada only" Blu-ray discs have the regular Blu-ray region A (or A/1, as it's sometimes referred as) encoding. They will play fine with with any region A Blu-ray player, including Singapore.
