February – Tribute to Brian De Palma
Brian De Palma is one of the most prolific, poorly understood and controversial directors in the history of American cinema. His career has spanned three decades and includes tremendously important works. De Palma’s characters, the phrases they utter and the philosophies they propitiate have been absorbed into our cultural vocabulary. Through persistence and longevity De Palma has created a body of work that is as moody and recalcitrant as it is aesthetically unassailable.
In spite of his popularity, De Palma is admittedly notorious. He has been accused of misanthropy, misogyny, cynicism—and their opposites: of “loving women,” of humanism, idealism and gushing romanticism. He is known alternately as a dispassionate plagiarist of Hitchcock and a maverick, a wicked satirist, an avant-gardist, a “sell-out”, a fiercely independent iconoclast and an intellectual; a creator of intensely personal or detached, deterministic and cerebral movies.
During February we will screen four of his virtuous masterworks that mark the pick of his career.

Carlito’s Way (1993)
After five years in prison, Carlito Brigante wants to go straight and tries to run a disco club and navigate his life back on track in New York’s mean streets of the 1970s.
Ten years after “Scarface”, actor Al Pacino and director Brian De Palma team up again and the result is once again triumphant. Few films actually made in the disco era can match the kinetic allure of this film, which has a bluesy undertow all of its own. "Carlito's Way" has an emotional and captivating story, with Pachino performing in a rare, melancholic dash (with great supporting performances from Sean Penn and Penelope Ann Miller), and De Palma on top of his game with flawless camerawork and flamboyant, almost operatic visual splendor.
