Bonfire of the Vanitas: De Palma, reviewed.

de-palma-De Palma Still - MI 4_rgbFor NPR, I reviewed Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow’s documentary De Palma, wherein the man behind Carrie and Dressed to Kill and The Untouchables and about three dozen other features walks us through his long, idiosyncratic career. This film won’t change anyone’s mind about the guy, but it’s a candid, briskly edited retrospective. I enjoyed it.
