If I was to confess that I’d not seen Phantom of the Paradise before I was sent the Arrow Video Blu-ray release for review I’m sure there are many out there who haven’t seen it too.  For somebody like me though who has an obsession with films I’ve not seen yet (they tend to pray on my mind), I jump at the chance to see films like Phantom of the Paradise – and with this release I’m very glad I did.

Phantom Of The Paradise Blu-Ray Review

21 February 2014 2:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Brian De Palma

Starring: Paul Williams, William FinleyGerrit Graham, Jessica Harper and George Memmoli

Running Time: 92 minutes

Certificate: 15

Being a massive fan of writer and director Brian De Palma even since those early years and it soon became apparent his approach to filmmaking is unique. Visually, he’s been one of the best for decades with camerawork often dizzying to the point of breathlessness. Like most, he is prone to a few career missteps along the way in his distinguished career. De Palma does however, weave between mainstream and independent eccentricity like no other with many of his features fusing those two aspects. He’s a director that you look at and think, that guy directed Carrie and Scarface; Raising Cain and Mission: Impossible; Body Double and Carlito’S Way. Really? Cinema so far apart in scope and personality, yet intrinsically and artistically linked in style and substance. »
