Haven‘t Seen It

#63 - Blow Out (ft. Kelly J.)

August 16, 2021

We welcome Kelly J. into the Haven't Seen It lair to break down Blow Out, Brian De Palma's 1981 treatise on conspiracy, ambiguous character motivations, and what a man (Jack Terry, played by John Travolta) does when he has in his possession hard evidence of a very consequential political crime.

Is Travolta the "good guy" in this movie, or is he just fulfilling male protector tropes as he tries to rescue the damsel (Nancy Allen) in distress? Also, what is the Bechdel test? Does this movie pass it?
