This startlingly cynical horror-comedy-fantasy-drama-musical is Brian De Palma at his playful, satirical best. With this '70s pop-driven mash-up of Faust, The Phantom of the Opera and The Picture of Dorian Gray, De Palma scathingly sends up the record industry while creating the sort of dark, sad, weird and funny atmosphere that Tim Burton wishes he could summon. A delirious work of brilliance.
