De Palma - Documentary

One of the most talented, influential, and iconoclastic filmmakers of all time, Brian De Palma’s career started in the 60s and has included such acclaimed and diverse films as Carrie, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, Scarface, The Untouchables, Carlito’s Way, and Mission: Impossible. In this lively, illuminating and unexpectedly moving documentary, directors Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow engage in a personal and candid discussion with De Palma, exploring not only his life and work but also his singular approach to the craft of filmmaking and his remarkable experiences navigating the film business, from his early days as the bad boy of New Hollywood to his more recent years as a respected veteran of the field. In the end, what emerges is a funny, honest, and incisive portrait of a truly one-of-a-kind artist, and an exhilarating behind-the-scenes look at the last 50 years of the film industry through the eyes of someone who has truly seen it all.

Directed by Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow
Release Date - June 10, 2016

This made me want to watch all of De Palma's filmography, mostly again, because it turns out I've seen almost all of it. He's a pretty relaxed racconteur, and he managed to make me laugh out loud a couple of times of shit he was laughing at. I wish there were more films like these made about most filmmakers, just to get a glimpse of the process.
