I'm a fan too. I like Body Double just a bit more, but I love Blow Out too.
It's a very suspenseful and masterfully crafted thriller, but also a protest against the American politics in that time, and above all it's a reflection on and an ode to movie making!
The opening scene, a parody on the slasher-genre, is one of my favourite scenes of all time... ironically, this single scene has more quality than any other slasher (except for the opening of Halloween maybe).

You mean the "it's a good scream" scene? I thought that was beautiful.

(spoilers ahead)

A broken man's kind of morbid but touching homage to the woman he loved. Also it may be an action to punish himself because he feels so guilty.
