Summary: Un-American Psycho is organized in large part around salvaging the reputation of Brian De Palma, a filmmaker whose name is commonly-and usually negatively-mentioned in the same breath as Hitchcock's. . . . Debut author Chris Dumas is giving De Palma his due. And in so doing, he's arming the next generation of De Palma defenders with some seriously heavy artillery.

Riassunto:Brian De Palma is perhaps best known as the director behind the gangster classic Scarface. Yet as ingrained as Scarface is in American popular culture, it is but one of a sizeable number of controversial films?many of which are consistently misread or ignored?directed by De Palma over his more than four-decade career. In Un-American Psycho, Chris Dumas places De Palma?s body of work in dialogue with the works of other provocative filmmakers, including Alfred Hitchcock, Jean-Luc Godard, and Francis Ford Coppola with the aim of providing a broader understanding of the narrative, stylistic, and political gestures that characterize De Palma?s filmmaking. De Palma?s films engage with a wide range of issues surrounding American political and social culture, and this volume offers a rethinking of the received wisdom on his work.
L'autore:Chris Dumas is an independent scholar and artist based in San Francisco.
