Coppola on
his recent films:
"What I was
trying to do with
those films was to
make three student
films in order to
try and set a new
trajectory and try to
say, 'Well, what
happens if I have no
resources?' Now, having
done that, my new
work is going to be
much more ambitious
and bigger in scope and
budget and ambition,
but now building on a
new confidence or
assurance. The three
little films were very
useful. I'm glad I did
it. I hope George Lucas
does it, because he
has a wonderful personal
filmmaking ability that
people haven't seen
for a while."

BOUZEREAU'S NIGHT AT THE MOVIES
TCM SPECIAL TO FEATURE HIRSCH, KOEPP, AND MORE
Turner Classic Movies will air a new series of one-hour specials this fall produced by Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks Television. The series is called A Night At The Movies, and the first special, The Suspenseful World Of Thrillers, was written, produced, and directed by Laurent Bouzereau, author of The De Palma Cut. The special will air on Friday, October 2 2009, at 8pm eastern time. Bouzereau has produced and directed numerous behind-the-scenes features over the years for laserdisc and DVD releases of films by Brian De Palma and Spielberg, among others. His TCM special on thrillers will feature new interviews with frequent De Palma editor Paul Hirsch, as well as David Koepp, who wrote the screenplays for De Palma's Carlito's Way, Mission: Impossible, and Snake Eyes. Other interviews for the program include Kenneth Branagh, Scott Frank, Bryan Singer, Martin Landau, Mel Brooks, and Diablo Cody. A TCM press release states that the special "will explore such topics as the origin of thrillers and development of stylistic conventions; the use of a wrongly accused everyman as a protagonist; the range of female roles, from damsel in distress to femme fatale; the creation of classic villains and the actors who relished playing them; the impact of World War II on the genre; the emergence of more violent thrillers in the 1960s; the rise of the paranoid thriller in the 1970s; and how the genre continues in popularity by latching onto the current zeitgeist." Also see the press release for a list of the films the channel will feature every Friday in October under the following headings: "Thrillers and Hitchcock," "Political Thrillers," "Crime Thrillers," "Gothic Thrillers," and "Psychological Thrillers."

DE PALMA TO PROVIDE PERSONAL NARRATION
AS ONE OF "HOLLYWOOD'S BEST FILM DIRECTORS" ON REELZ
Brian De Palma will narrate at least one episode (maybe two-- see below) about his own films as part of ReelzChannel's Hollywood's Best Film Directors series, which premieres later this month. The press release promising 52 half-hour episodes states that each episode will be narrated on-camera by the featured director. The "unique series will provide viewers with fun and entertaining insights into the making of their favorite movies... featuring some of Hollywood's most influential and innovative minds--all telling their personal stories in their own words." The press release further states that each episode "will give viewers a personal and insightful look into the lives, influences and original style of today's top movie makers." ReelzChannel CEO Stan Hubbard states in the press release, "Hollywood's Best Film Directors is a fantastic series that gives viewers a look inside the movie-making process from the rare first-person perspective of A-list directors." The Reelz website currently lists 26 directors as part of the series-- either each director will have two half-hour episodes, or the other 26 have not yet been produced. Aside from De Palma, the other directors taking part include Oliver Stone, Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, Paul Verhoeven, David Fincher, Michael Mann, Robert Zemeckis, and William Friedkin, among several others.
