This collection of interviews of Brian De Palma the celebrated filmmaker reads as an insightful window into the world of filmmaking not only in the 1970's and 80's but up till the 2000's where many view his film career to have reached a lull some consider it to have occurred before this date However that is not a detriment with this collection in fact I found that the book was great going from interview to interview each conducted as a new film was coming out ie one for Sisters one for Phantom of the Paradise one for Carrieso on and so forthWhile this book may seem dated since it's last interview was around the time Mission to Mars debuted it really isn't Look at Truffaut's interviews with Hitchcock as relevant as ever However if you are looking for a newer interview with the great De Palma you can purchase the Criterion's DVD or BluRay copy of De Palma's masterpiece Blow Out which includes an hour long interview conducted by Noah Baumbach recorded in 2010 or 2011 which serves as nice companion piece to this collectionI enjoyed reading this and if you love the films of De Palmaor even if you don't it will give you perhaps a better understanding of who the man is and the way he thinks I recommend this book Highly
