DE PALMA SERIES AT CINEMATHEQUE DE NICE
OTHER FILM SERIES: PARK JUNG-HOON CHOOSES 'SCARFACE' FOR SEOUL; 'BLOW OUT' PART OF TORONTO POLITICAL SERIES
Cinémathèque de Nice kicked off its Brian De Palma film series Tuesday, January 10th. The series, running throughout January, features 18 De Palma films, consisting of every feature the director has made since (and including) Obsession, with the exception of Home Movies and Wise Guys. Last night, Jean Douchet presented Blow Out as part of his Cinema Club, offering his comments about the film and De Palma's work. Douchet provided commentary on the French DVD of De Palma's Hi, Mom!, released a few years ago.

AMERICAN MOVIES AND THE POLITICS OF IDEALISM
Blow Out will also be included in film critic and author Kevin Courrier's weekly lecture series, "Reflections In The Hall Of Mirrors: American Movies And The Politics Of Idealism," at Toronto's Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre. The series deals with films and ideas for a book Courrier is currently writing, to be published in 2013. According to the web site description, "'Reflections in the Hall of Mirrors' examines how key American movies from the last forty years have soaked up the political and cultural ideals of their time. Since American movies often echo the secret aspirations, the dashed expectations and the country's deeply divisive elements, they shape - and reflect - much of the American public thinking and discourse." The class will take place on Mondays, beginning January 16 with the Kennedy era, and concluding March 26 with the Obama era. Clips from Blow Out will be screened on February 13 as part of the Reagan era class. Other film clips included that night will be from Philip Kaufman's Invasion Of The Body Snatchers, Herbert Ross' Pennies From Heaven, Tony Richardson's The Border, and Barry Levinson's Diner, among others.

10TH ANNIVERSARY OF SEOUL ART CINEMA
Meanwhile, the seventh edition of Cinematheque Friends Film Festival kicked off today, and it includes a celebration of the 10th anniversary of Seoul Art Cinema. According to The Korea Herald, the fest "features a total of 19 films picked by 23 acclaimed cineastes in the country, including filmmakers, film critics, actors and actresses." Actor Park Jung-hoon will present De Palma's Scarface. "I watched the film more than 50 times," the actor told the Herald. "It really mesmerized me throughout my teenage years and during my 20s." The festival runs through February 26th.

Excellent. Speaking of Seoul, what happened to BDP's plan to make a Korean film that he stated around 10 years ago? Obviously it's dead, but it would be nice to hear the whole story sometimes, because some of us are huge fans of Korean cinema.
