Pino Donaggio's score to the Brian DePalma psychological thriller Dressed to Kill vaults the composer to an altogether new level of mastery. With its unusually lengthy passages of dialogue-free narrative, DePalma's film relies heavily on Donaggio's score to communicate drama and suspense, and the composer responds with a hypnotically sensual work of extraordinary melodic complexity. His lush melodies perfectly articulate the intoxicating dread of DePalma's twisted erotic fantasia.
