NYFF: “De Palma” (September 30)

 Wednesday night at the New York Film Festival I saw the new documentary by directors Noah Baumbach & Jake Paltrow titled "De Palma".

The film is about the legendary film director Brian De Palma – and he is the only person speaking on camera.

He recounts his early film career (including the first films of Robert DeNiro "Greetings" and "The Wedding Party") and explores all of he his feature films up to his last feaure, the 2012 film "Passion".

It's really an enjoyable documentary and if you're a fan of De Palma's films – it's a must see.

Personally, my favorite DePalma films are "Carrie", "Carlito's Way", "Body Double", "Dressed to Kill", "Casualties of War", "Scarface" and "Blow Out".

After the screening, Baumbach & Paltrow were joined by the film's subject, Brian De Palma, for an extended discussion and Q&A session with the audience.
