It's hard to find any movie fans who feel indifferent about Brian De Palma.
For more than 40 years, Brian's made movies that are provocative, shocking, entertaining and raw.
Brian's first major breakthrough was 'Carrie', a movie that took "prom night disaster" to a whole new level.
In 1983, Brian gave us 'Scarface' and Tony Montana, a violent, rampaging gangster (and now, thanks to Brian, a full-fledged pop culture icon).
While critics were busy arguing about his legacy, Brian became a major force in Hollywood, achieving both commercial and artistic success.
Now, Brian's got a new movie, 'Passion', about two corporate executives in a power struggle to end all power struggles. It's a story about revenge, money, sex, betrayal... In other words, it's pure Brian De Palma.
