  1. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film De Palma

    Underwhelming, speaking as someone who grew up watching his parents' bootleg copies of Carrie, Dressed to Kill, and Blow-Out. Most interesting bits are in the first third: watching his surgeon father work in bloody operating rooms, father's infidelity and his subsequent stalking/surveillance of him, early experiments at Cinema 16 and Sarah Lawrence, activist elements in films made in the late 1960s, etc.

  2. Bruno's rating of the film De Palma

    eu gosto de ouvir o De Palma falar, como fala e o que diz, pelo que seria injusto dizer que me valeria a isto a wikipédia, mas qual é? passam pela sua filmografia inteira em menos de hora e cinquenta, que poderia alguém esperar se não esta lista a traçar de vistos? faz falta uma conversa sem restrição de tempo, a tocar matérias mais interessantes, alguém o faça, o homem já tem setenta e sete anos

  3. Nolan Barth's rating of the film De Palma

    With "De Palma" Baumbach and Paltrow manage to create one of the most entertaining and compelling documentaries of the year. Brian De Palma himself walks us through an in depth look at his life and career. De Palma is never anything but truthful and candid throughout this documentary and it is fascinating to see him look back at his career. This is a must see for any movie buff!

  4. Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film De Palma

    Great to hear this interview full of anecdotes but it would have been a better documentary if Baumbach had been more critical of his subject.

  5. Flavia Loayza's rating of the film De Palma

  6. Mr.Pacha's rating of the film De Palma

    Gli do 3 stelle perché sono affezionato al regista, ma alcune cose sono da rivedere

  7. Ghostman's rating of the film De Palma

    about as informative as a wikipedia page but it's a nice tribute nonetheless.

  8. Yasser Azmy's rating of the film De Palma

    i liked that he mention only the fun memory of everyfilm, he seemed like a nice old grandpa telling you his youth adventures, inspiring filmography for sure

  9. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film De Palma

    Brian De Palma hace un repaso de su filmografía contando sabrosas anécdotas (Mi favorita: Bernard Herrmann horrorizado al ver el pre-montaje de Sisters con música de Psycho) y reflexionando sobre su complicada relación con los estudios, la crítica, el éxito y el fracaso. Un documental muy entretenido y sencillo al mismo tiempo.

  10. DenoResandono's rating of the film De Palma

    It was like listening to your grandpa - told you a story about his life journey. And your grandpa is Brian De Palma...

  11. traag-1's rating of the film De Palma

    Great documentary with patience that is ultimately about the horror of working within the horror system as an auteur.

  12. ABVH's rating of the film De Palma

    De Palma talking how it's not his fault.

  13. Renton47's rating of the film De Palma

    An issue with format/directors perhaps? Imagine a TV series with De Palma spending 25 mins on each film in detail. Given that I pretty much want a version of this for all directors it's a shame it falls so flat... No score, no surprises, I enjoyed some anecdotes but overall a little perfunctory.

  14. Ryan Swen's rating of the film De Palma

  15. Jordan Kaltz's rating of the film De Palma

  16. bryanvmh's rating of the film De Palma

    Interesting to see the ways that the filmmakers sort of counteract some of the things that he is saying but also disappointing to hear about how he feels about the underlying aspects of his works.

  17. James Mackin's rating of the film De Palma

    A fun watch for De Palma fans, but this feels more like a feature length special feature.

  18. Gonçalo Rosas's rating of the film De Palma

    (Generous) 7 - A perfect representation of De Palma's career; very interesting as a whole, with plenty of good bits and its fair share of duds, and it leaves you thoroughly convinced of the man's status as a natural born storyteller.

  19. smndvdcl's rating of the film De Palma

    A superb gateway into De Palma's influence on American cinema. From his love of Godardian radicalism to Hitchcock's deconstruction of dysfunctional male voyeurism, De Palma's craft was rooted in film history and the pragmatic nous of camera operating. He did not merely create a pastiche or an homage to past auteurs, he reinvented their oeuvre in a post-modern US in flux. Many of his films deserve revisionist acclaim.

  20. Allison Rung's rating of the film De Palma

    Well done and makes me want to pay more attn to Baumbach. The particular magic for me (unrelated to the dirs.) was DePalma's EYES... as he recalls the films you can watch his eyes move to a different register. Also I learned two things; (1) Kael blazed the trail for critical appreciation, (2) DePalma sees himself as the principal artistic descendant of Hitchcock.

  21. gld48's rating of the film De Palma

    I haven't seen enough of De Palma's films. Working on it. This was a great insight into one of the great auteurs.

  22. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film De Palma

  23. Tiago Inácio's rating of the film De Palma

    fascinating insight into the mind of a fascinating filmmaker.
