Top 5 Brian De Palma films?

My list:

1. Blow Out

2. The Untouchables

3. Scarface

4. Mission: Impossible

5. Sisters

He is such a strange director for me. I've never reacted to one of his films with an "eh," which I suppose is a compliment. I'm either completely enthralled or completely appalled. The Bonfire of the Vanities, Femme Fatale, The Black Dahlia, and Redacted all caused me a degree of physical pain. I wanted to -escape- those movies while watching them. Yet he also directed Blow Out, one of the most elegant and suspenseful and inventive thrillers I've seen, albeit one obviously indebted to several other films and filmmakers.
