One of Brian De Palma's most acclaimed films, Blow Out, released on Blu-ray by Arrow Films on 27th May 2013, is a brilliant fusion of the obsessive sleuthing of Blow-up and The Conversation with themes drawn from real-life political scandals (the JFK assassination, Chappaquiddick, Watergate) starting with sound technician Jack Terry (John Travolta) accidentally recording what might be explosive evidence of a deadly conspiracy.

Brilliantly shot by the then recent Oscar-winner Vilmos Zsigmond, this terrifically stylish thriller co-stars Nancy Allen as the eyewitness who becomes the unwitting target of John Lithgow's serial killer as he ruthlessly attempts to bury all the evidence.

It's also a film about the filmmaking process: Terry is originally hired to work on the low-budget slasher film Coed Frenzy and later turns his technical skills to much more serious use as he tries to reconstruct a political assassination on film in a way that will stand up in court.
