AND MINI-REVIEW OF 'PASSION' FROM PROVINCETOWN
The picture above shows Brian De Palma chatting with John Waters yesterday at the Provincetown International Film Festival, where Waters was to conduct a late-afternoon conversation with Harmony Korine, in the same theater where De Palma presented his new film Passion later that same evening. The picture above was taken by George Weinstein, and appears at Demotix.
Meanwhile, Cape Cod Times' Tim Miller caught Wednesday night's screening of Passion at the festival. "The film is convoluted," states Miller, "where you often don't know whether you're watching a dream or reality, which is fine, but here it seems more than a little forced. No one ever accused De Palma of being subtle. But that can be a good thing, too: You can't stop watching Passion, wondering what bizarre thing will happen next."
