De Palma: The master of excess and suspense

There is no doubt that one of the great directors of the modern age is Brian de Palma, a director who has a long list of classics, near classics and interesting gems to his name. Scarface, The Untouchables, Carlito's Way, Obsession, Dressed to Kill, Casualties of War, Mission Impossible, Raising Cain or Carrie. Even his duds – Bonfire of the Vanities, Mission to Mars or Snake Eyes – have moments of great interest to cinephiles and reveal a director with a real understanding, not only of the technical aspects of filmmaking, but of the filmic possibilities of the camera.
