The Suspensful Career of Brian De Palma

user
  While Alfred Hitchcock will forever be known as the "master of suspense", one of his true admirers, the director Brian De Palma, also shares the master's abiding interest and superb execution of the thriller genre.

In many ways, De Palma combines the classic elements of less-is-more film sus...

  It seems amazing, especially in the context of a film festival, that there might be a time in the not so distant future when young people will think of films as something they can download onto their mobile devices and view on their mini screens. Films as big screen events may never completely die, but clearly the trend towards miniaturization has made the wide screen epics of yesteryear seem quaintly anachronistic. Well, as part of its 50th anniversary celebrations, th...
