  • While I must disagree with James and say that De Palma’s best work was outside of the time-frame he mentioned (I’m the world’s only Bonfire of the Vanities fan…psych, I’m talking about Carlito’s Way), this did make me realize that I’m less familiar with the man’s stuff before Blow Out than I am after. I tried watching Sisters via the instant. Couldn’t do it. But after this podcast, it’s a must-see.
