[Joel Bocko, otherwise known to most of you as MovieMan0283 of The Dancing Image, contributes a unique piece to the Blog-A-Thon that comments on some of the more disturbing recurring motifs in his favorite De Palma films. Joel proves that he is as skilled at putting images together as he is doing the same with words. Be forewarned: because of some of the imagery, this piece is definitely NSFW.]
This is a video tribute to Mr. De Palma and an examination of his thematic and stylistic obsessions. It runs about seven and a half minutes, and contains footage from my three favorite De Palma films: Hi, Mom!, Carrie, and Scarface, which were released, roughly, with seven years between each film. Hope you enjoy the piece.
