Noah Baumbach's Must See 'De Palma' Documentary Gets An Exceptional Trailer

By Matt O.

A new documentary has arrived entitled De Palma, which appears to be a super interesting piece of work chronicling the career of Brian De Palma and even narrated by De Palma himself. The film is directed by Noah Baumbach and reveals the behind-the-scenes last 50 years through the eyes of someone who has seen it all. If you're a hardcore film fan this documentary is a must watch and I can't wait! Check out the trailer below and then sound off in the comments with your thoughts.

The stories from here never stop. From discovering Robert De Niro in a workshop in Sarah Lawrence and directing Orson Welles at thirty years of age, to the success of Sisters and Carrie in the 1970’s, kicking Oliver Stone off the set of Scarface, to filming Blow Out, The Untouchables and Dressed to Kill the decade after, the list of highlights is staggering.

De Palma is candid about his failures, honest about his disappointments, and doesn’t bother with false modesty where his great pictures are concerned. Speaking of the various remakes and subsequent adaptations of Carrie, the film that put him on the commercial map, he chuckles over the amusement of watching other people make mistakes that he avoided.

Here's the official synopsis:

"One of the most talented, influential, and iconoclastic filmmakers of all time, Brian De Palma’s career started in the 60s and has included such acclaimed and diverse films as Carrie, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, Scarface, The Untouchables, Carlito’s Way, and Mission: Impossible. In this lively, illuminating and unexpectedly moving documentary, directors Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow engage in a personal and candid discussion with De Palma, exploring not only his life and work but also his singular approach to the craft of filmmaking and his remarkable experiences navigating the film business, from his early days as the bad boy of New Hollywood to his more recent years as a respected veteran of the field. In the end, what emerges is a funny, honest, and incisive portrait of a truly one-of-a-kind artist, and an exhilarating behind-the-scenes look at the last 50 years of the film industry through the eyes of someone who has truly seen it all."

De Palma is set to hit select theaters on June 10th.
