NYFF alert: If snuff films were art and legal Brian DePalma would be the critic's master auteur of the genre. .. his misogyny and celebration of male bonding has none of the erotic pleasure of Norman Mailer but his mastery of craft rivals both John Ford and Leni Riefenstahl. Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow’pay homage to De Palma without asking any hard questions. Like Hemingway the work De Palma creates is so impeccable that the dazzle of visual craft manages to blind the watcher during the viewing to the horror of its content.. Be prepared to lean how he has navigated Hollywood but know that little of the personal drama his life has held seeps through in this celebration of his mastery of cinematic seduction
