One of my favorite directors is Brian DePalma. He's experiencing something of a renaissance because of a critically acclaimed documentary by Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow about DePalma. Who can forget The Untouchables and Scarface? But I love his other films like Carlito's Way and The Phantom of the Paradise just as much. But the guy has made a lot of films over his long career. Who has time to sit and watch them all? There are 40 of them, after all. Luckily French movie fanatic Romain Desbiens put together this little video which spans DePalma's entire career in a mere six minutes. That's a whole lot of violence in a short period of time.
Scarface played a big part in my life. As a Cuban who grew up in the 80's, that film defined who American pop culture viewed us. I wish my family were cocaine kingpins. The truth was much more boring.
