‘Wise Guys’: Brian De Palma’s Self-Proclaimed “Bastard Child”

21 July 2016 12:49 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Is this Brian De Palma’s only dull film? Very possibly yes. Released in 1986, this post-SNL Joe Piscopo vehicle (you read that correctly) feels incredibly standard. The plot concerns two low-level gangsters, Moe and Harry (Piscopo and Danny DeVito, respectively), who lose their mob boss’ money at the race track. Said mob boss (Dan Hedaya) orders the two schlubs to kill each other. Hijinks ensue.

In spats, it plays like De Palma trying out slapstick. Select moments — a close-up shot that pulls out to reveal Harry being drowned inside of a fish tank or Moe testing out a bulletproof suit jacket for his boss — highlight the fascinating hybrid of De Palma’s visual style with broad, studio comedy. If only it worked a bit more frequently throughout the film’s bloated 100-minute runtime. One can only ponder what additional mileage the director may have achieved from DeVito’s deliciously terrible hairpiece, »

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Fury (1978)

2 July 2016 9:59 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

1978 cast a long shadow in the world of horror. From Dawn of the Dead to Halloween, the landscape was abundant with everything from the socially relevant to the singularly terrifying, from superior remakes (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) to quirky haunted houses (The Evil). And then there’s the red headed stepchild that no one talks about: Brian DePalma’s The Fury. Frenetic, action packed, and gruesome, The Fury never gets the love from even most DePalma fanatics. What a shame – it’s never less than entertaining, and at its best showcases the director’s mesmerizing visual touch.

Released in March by Twentieth Century Fox, The Fury made $24 million against its $5.5 million budget. That’s good green, folks, and DePalma received favorable reviews,  still basking in a critical glow left over from his previous effort, Carrie (’76). So why is it so easily dismissed, ranked along the lines of efforts like Wise Guys, »

Botelho on De Palma: My Favorite Set Pieces

27 June 2016 5:15 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

*Editor’s note – Our good bud, Derek Botelho (author of the Great book, The Argento Syndrome) is a big De Palma fan and really, aren’t we all? The guy has such a great filmography and Botelho thought he’d provide you fright fanatics with some of his favorite De Palma moments! –Jerry

With the recent release of the documentary De Palma by Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow, I got to thinking about why I admire De Palma’s work as much as I do. His technique is so singular and instantly recognizable, that to merely pass him off as a tin pot Hitchcock is doing both himself and Hitchcock a severe disservice. Whether it’s a ridiculously intricate spit screen, a rear projected psychic “flashback”, or a glorious whirling dervish around a room to tell you vital information, he’s always up to something, and never one to give »

Why I Can’t Love Brian De Palma (Though I’ve Always Wished I Could)

26 June 2016 4:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back when I was a kid, and a lot more naïve about how the motion picture industry works, I had expectations of filmmakers that were completely unreasonable in their very reverence. If I saw a masterpiece, and then placed the person who directed it high atop my superstar pedestal of art heroes, I longed for him or her to go forward and make 10 or 20 more masterpieces (hey, why not!), and I always felt keenly disappointed if it didn’t work out that way. It was hard for me to wrap my head around the idea that even a movie as enthralling and visionary and apparently brilliantly orchestrated as “The Godfather” or “Nashville” was, among other things, a kind of fantastic accident: a coming together of elements that even the director isn’t always (or ever) in full control of.

But when it came to the art heroes who let me down, »

The Fury: Brian De Palma’s underrated, explosive movie

23 June 2016 8:58 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

Director Brian De Palma followed Carrie with another gory vaunt into the supernatural. Here's why The Fury deserves a revisit...

When it comes to telekinesis and gory visual effects, the movie that generally springs to mind is David Cronenberg’s 1981 exploding head opus, Scanners. But years before that, American director Brian De Palma was liberally dowsing the screen with claret in his 1976 adaptation of Carrie - still rightly regarded as one of the best Stephen King adaptations made so far. A less widely remembered supernatural film from De Palma came two years after: De Palma’s supernatural thriller, The Fury.

The Fury was made with a more generous budget than Carrie, had a starrier cast (Kirk Douglas in the lead, John Cassavetes playing the villain), and it even did pretty well in financial terms. Yet The Fury had the misfortune of being caught in a kind of pincer movement between Carrie, »

Film Review: ‘The Duel’

22 June 2016 6:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you’re an actor playing someone who’s sick and twisted and evil, almost nothing will get you into character quite like a startling new look. That tends to be the case whether the look comes courtesy of the makeup department (think Heath Ledger’s Joker in “The Dark Knight” or Robert De Niro’s Al Capone in “The Untouchables”) or, simply, the electric razor. In “The Duel,” Woody Harrelson plays some sort of lethally charismatic Southern cult leader in the years after the Civil War, and his performance, which is all about being the kind of person no one can take their eyes off of, begins with his look: a shaved head, which seems like no big deal, but with matching shaved eyebrows (and occult tattooish squiggles in their place), all of which give Harrelson the appearance of a death-row psycho, or an overgrown baby, or maybe a strutting alien. »

The Summer of De Palma: A Career-Spanning Retrospective

17 June 2016 12:24 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Bringing up Brian De Palma as if he’s still some kind of marginalized or misunderstood figure is now heavily contentious, not just in the sense that “the discussion” has, with the presence of the Internet, become so heavily splintered that every figure has at least seem some form of reappraisal, but in that this is being discussed on the occasion of a new documentary and retrospectives in New York, Chicago, Austin, and Toronto (the lattermost of which this symposium will be timed to). Yes, the line has probably tipped past “divisive,” but that doesn’t mean there still isn’t room for debate.

It’s not hard to understand why De Palma’s work strikes a cord with a new cinephilia fixated on form and vulgarity. Though, in going film-by-film — taking us from political diatribes against America to gonzo horror to gangster films your parents watch to strange European »

Explore Early Brian De Palma Shorts, a ‘Body Double’ Analysis, and Two Podcasts

9 June 2016 11:26 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While this Brian De Palma fan can’t help but be a little annoyed that a career-spanning documentary from in-vogue filmmakers suddenly brings out more admiring notices and supportive voices — Passion was only three years ago, people! — said documentary, Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow’s De Palma, being so good makes this change of heart a little easier to swallow. And what opportunism it affords! Between my interview with the duo and a very exciting project that we’ll soon give you — and, of course, on the eve of this new film’s release — we give you some new items to explore.

The first two are easily grouped together: short films that, despite (or maybe because) having been produced early in his career and oscillating between fiction and documentary, evince key interests. (Voyeurism and scopophilia are among them, and the Eisensteinian montage that closes Woton’s Wake might — might — connect »

Review: 'De Palma' is more than just a casual appraisal of a director's work

8 June 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Brian De Palma taught me the value of film criticism. The first time one of his films really registered for me actively was when Dressed To Kill was released in 1980. I was starting to get bit by the film bug at the time, still in the early days of the sickness, and there were many ways I would digest films beyond just seeing movies. For films I wasn’t allowed to see, there were still ways for me to get some sense of the movie. Mad magazine, for example. Undressed To Kill was one of the movie parodies that ran in 1980, and it was a beat for beat riff off of the real film. I knew the story and I even knew the twist, since Mad was not shy about spoilers. It was easy to feel like you’d seen the film after you read a Mad parody, and I »

Top Ridiculous Scenes In Movies

3 June 2016 6:14 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Some movies have been accused of stretching reality in order to keep their stories 'flowing', with viewers usually forced to suspend their disbelief. Then there are those moments when we admit there are plot devices in some serious films that are just plain ridiculous including "Kill Bill: Vol. 2", "Face/Off", "Run Lola Run", "The Untouchables" and "Rocky":

"Kill Bill: Vol. 2"

In writer/director Quentin Tarantino's 2004 revenge action thriller, 'Beatrice' (Uma Thurman) aka 'The Bride' embarks on a slice 'n dice rampage, to take out the 'Deadly Vipers' gang of killers that left her for dead on her wedding day.

Unfortunately her quest is near-terminated by 'Budd', the brother of 'Bill'  who shoots her in the chest and, with the help of 'Elle Driver', buries Bea in a coffin - alive.

Recalling the teachings of her master 'Pai Mei', and her struggles in punching through a wooden board, »

Ennio Morricone European Tour Dates Cancelled due to Health Concerns

4 May 2016 2:46 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — Italian composer Ennio Morricone, winner of this year’s original-score Oscar for Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight,” has cancelled several European tour dates due to back problems.

The 87-year-old maestro with more than 500 movie credits to this name has two collapsed spinal vertebrae, according to a statement issued by Rome’s Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia Orchestra. He was scheduled to perform three concerts featuring his compositions with Santa Cecilia and its chorus on May 22, 23, and 24 in Rome’s Auditorium Parco della Musica venue.

The Santa Cecilia statement specified that doctors have told Morricone, who has been prone to back injuries for years, that he will be unable to perform until the end of June.

“I am very sorry, but these concerts will be rescheduled as soon as possible,” the statement quoted Morricone as saying.

Prior to winning his first competitive Oscar this year, Morricone had previously received »
