CRISPLY EDITED 'MASTERPIECES' SERIES VID INCLUDES DE PALMA'S LATEST, 'DOMINO'
Gabriel Fasano posted a crisply-edited Brian De Palma edition of his Masterpieces series a few days ago on Vimeo, with the following description:
Few directors like Brian De Palma have explored so thoroughly the ways of narrating cinema. From the use of PoV, split screens, split-diopters, cinema screens, different types of camera angles, especially zeniths and low angles, perspective games, use of different artifacts to show different forms of vision: cameras, televisions, binoculars, mirrors, lenses, frames inside frames, etc. All in service of telling stories of thrillers, gangster and war, about obsessive, megalomaniac and voyeurist characters. This is the cinema of Brian De Palma.
Yesterday, the video, which is so up-to-date as to include De Palma's latest film, Domino, also posted to YouTube:
