I wish. I made it a year or so ago, before Arrow announced their release.

Love the poster art, though.

De Palma to remake HEAT (no, not *that* HEAT).

Statham and De Palma's an interesting combination. Looking forward to it.

I'm on board. Nice to see De Palma doing stuff again. Even if he doesn't make another true classic, it's a fair bet he'll make interesting and worthwhile films.

They'll have to call it something other than HEAT, though.

Eh, I'm not keen on Jason Statham.

But, naturally, I'll give it a go when it's released because it's De Palma.

I'm thinking of creating another De Palma fan site, taking off from where DE PALMA A LA MOD is right now.

That site is in dire need of a makeover, too. I think they're still using icons from the late 90s. laugh

Perhaps original reviews, a collection of photos and interviews, and news about De Palma's upcoming work would be interesting to take on. I want to model it based on BernardHerrmann.org. It'd be nice getting access to people who have worked with him too, if it gains enough momentum.

We'll see where this goes. I've got to look into acquiring a server and a domain name.

For starters, I've reserved a Tumblr site under briandepalma.tumblr.com. Surprised that URL wasn't taken.

Sounds good, Brandon.

De Palma supporters are still thin on the ground.

If you want someone to write articles on the two Herrmann-De Palma collaborations, you can call me. I wish I could do something about Pino Donaggio, but I don't know enough about the guy, the background behind his scores, or his rapport with Brian De Palma. There's next to nothing devoted to him in academic literature or ordinary books.

What would the world be without Google Translate?

He debuted in 1961 with How symphony, rerun by Teddy Reno, a classical piece that reveals her past in conservatory. How symphony gets a hit record and is then also recorded by Mina, there are reasons, however, in his first repertoire more "disengaged" as a ripe pear, and the dog stuff.

That'd be great.

Like I said, I'll let you know when I've got something going. It'll probably be in June or so.

I've got to start making a list of what I can feature, gathering online videos of De Palma, digging up old interviews, etc. Someone needs to pay proper tribute to the man.

Now what are you gonna call it? :)

DE PALMA OBSESSION?

I wish I could contribute, but I'm afraid I'd not be much help. You've got my support in spirit, though.

It's very rare to find a critic who gets both De Palma and Spielberg..

I was watching RAISING CAIN in the theatrical cut. It just doesn't work as well for me. I loved the re-cut from Indiewire.

http://blogs.indiewire.com/pressplay/feature-brian-de-palmas-raising-cain#

I didn't expect it to still be up, but it is. And it looks like you can download it, which I am. I hope it works. :) Now if my laptop had a DVD burner... Not sure if it does.

We get an official synopsis and image from De Palma's latest, PASSION:



Quote :
An erotic thriller in the tradition of “Dressed To Kill” and “Basic Instinct”, Brian de Palma’s PASSION tells the story of a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business. Christine possesses the natural elegance and casual ease associated with one who has a healthy relationship with money and power. Innocent, lovely and easily exploited, her admiring protégé Isabelle is full of cutting-edge ideas that Christine has no qualms about stealing. They’re on the same team, after all… Christine takes pleasure in exercising control over the younger woman, leading her one step at a time ever deeper into a game of seduction and manipulation, dominance and humiliation. But when Isabelle falls into bed with one of Christine’s lovers, war breaks out. On the night of the murder, Isabelle is at the ballet, while Christine receives an invitation to seduction. From whom? Christine loves surprises. Naked she goes to meet the mystery lover waiting in her bedroom…

De Palma back in action. Money, power, seduction, manipulation, dominance, humiliation, murder. And Rachel McAdams naked.
