In the annals of Hollywood film since the artistic glories of the New Hollywood era, few have a better reputation and body of work in the field of suspense films exploring the contemporary darkness in American life than Brian De Palma. Here, the great film writer and director takes, us in his own words, through his professional life and a career that redefined film horror and suspense. All the while, he also confesses the challenges of working in Hollywood and the price even the great artists pay for being a part of it. Written by

This is a documentary about Brian De Palma's movies and career. It's
almost entirely him sitting and talking about his movies. His
Hitchcockian influence is obvious to any passing fans. This is a good
documentary for anyone who likes his movies. Having come up along with
many young directing icons of the era, he has some good insights and
stories about everything. It doesn't get too salacious but he's not
really sugar-coating too much either. It's a compelling watch and a
fine insight into his movies. This is basically a compilation of the
best of twenty plus movie commentaries by the director.
