Created as an homage to Michaelangelo Antonioni’s 1967 mystery thriller, Blow-up, this gripping film revolves around Jack’s obsession with solving the mystery of whether a fatal car crash he witnessed whilst capturing sound effects for a slasher movie was in fact an assassination, as the gunshot picked up by his mic seems to suggest.

Known for her portrayal of malicious high school bully, Chris Hargensen, in De Palma’s adaptation of Steven King’s Carrie, Nancy Allen stars alongside Travolta as Sally – the only survivor of the car crash and, more importantly, the only eyewitness to the murder that Jack suspects was committed.

Despite its terrible performance at the box office in 1981, Blow Out has proven itself a masterpiece of twentieth-century cinema, famously listed as one of Quentin Tarantino’s favourite films.
