Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow Tell Brian De Palma's Story in New Documentary

Publish date:

Filmmakers Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow profile their friend and mentor Brian De Palma, as the veteran filmmaker tells his own story--of making movies like Blow Out, Scarface, and Carlito's Way--in his own words.

Says Baumbach to Inverse of the film's style, which involves only De Palma speaking interspersed with film clips, "We knew we were very much a part of it regardless because we are talking to him and he’s talking in a way that he talks to us. So we were a way to get him there, and then we took ourselves out afterward. We had had that idea from the beginning. We didn’t want it to feel like an interview. We wanted it to feel like a story."
