Brian De Palma is one of the key figures of a group of young directors that took over Hollywood and changed it forever in the 1970s. Together with Martin Scorsese, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola among others, they were known as the “movie brats” or “the New Hollywood”. More controversial and confrontational than many of his peers, De Palma has made some of the most visually arresting American films of the last 40 years, but his refusal to compromise has often left him a marginalised figure in the industry. In this documentary he looks back over his long career film-by-film, offering candid insights into his work process and the wider Hollywood industry to which he never truly belonged.
