“I’m writing a film about [the Harvey Weinstein] scandal, a project I’m talking about with a French producer. My character won’t be named Harvey Weinstein but it will be a horror film, with a sexual aggressor, and it will take place in the film industry.” — Brian DePalma speaking to Le Parisien‘s Catherine Balle in a short q & a posted on 6.1.
The second most interesting quote comes when Balle asks if DePalma has “been offered [a chance] to make movies for Netflix?”, and DePalma replies, “Yes, but I need a big screen because I am a visual stylist.”
I understand what BDP is saying — his kind of movies work better with that swept-along feeling that comes with seeing them with a sharp crowd on a big screen — but a film with a strong visual style would surely be appreciated if it was restricted to home screens. Images are images, style is style.
