Brian De Palma
Guy Lochhead, 21/05/10
American director of suspense and thriller films, probably best known for ‘Scarface’. He started out in experimental theatre before settling into either psychological thrillers or graphically violent gangster and action films. Really, De Palma comes across as some Godard fan who got into Hollywood, so I don’t want to include him. But if I was to, I would probably include ‘Hi, Mom!’. It’s frustrating he turned his back on physics, and that he’s never found a way to include that in his filmmaking.
