COURTESY NY TIMES VIDEO INTERVIEW WITH DE PALMA
The image above of Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams in Brian De Palma's Passion is courtesy of a New York Times video in which De Palma discusses the film. Aside from the image above, the video includes three more new pictures that have not previously been released. In the video, De Palma briefly describes the plot of Passion, and then discusses some of his filmmaking techniques. "I'm kind of a very intensely involved visual director," he says in the video. "I like beautiful people, interesting locations, and I also like the relationship between them. I kind of like the noir look. This is a kind of noirish drama. And plus, noir lighting has always been very interesting to me. I look for the correct shot for the piece of material I'm photographing. If it happens to be a steadicam shot, or a split diopter shot, or use of split screen, or a whole complicated surrealistic montage, these are things I have developed and evolved over the last 50 years of filmmaking. And they're very distinctive, and it doesn't take anybody very long to know that they're in a Brian De Palma movie."
