Carrie (1976)

I saw Brian De Palma's "Carrie" tonight for the first time at the IFC Center. I found it profoundly moving, especially the entire prom part. Really great visuals, shifting music, and a plethora of themes to dig through. I wish I could have attended a school dance like that irl, minus the pigsblood catastrophe, of course. Nothing like silver paper stars hanging from a ceiling to bring you back to the quintessential high school experience that never really existed.
