Brian De Palma

Should a director court controversy? If you're  Brian De Palma you might answer that with a question.
How can you not? The man who made Carrie, Dressed to Kill, The Untouchables and Scarface is back with a look at US involvement in Iraq.

Redacted is based on a  horrific true story that took place during current Iraq war. Brian talks to Elvis about how his direction of this film was influenced by the Internet, his belief that people have reacted strongly to the film due to being insulated by the media and government as to what is really going on in Iraq, winning this year's Silver Lion in Venice and what the Rotten Tomatoes website has to say about his movies.
