: Cineaste thriller fans, though, should be out seeing Brian De Palma's Passion
, finally getting a small theatrical release almost a year after its New York Film Festival berth, which I wrote about
last fall. It's also available, like most of this month's indies, via On Demand, but a De Palma movie, especially one with show-offy split screen sequences and crazy long takes, should be seen in the awkward, darkened theater. As I mentioned in my original review, Passion
is the pure De Palma palate cleanser he seems to make every 10 years or so, as needed. An official 2012 release would've made this more mathematically perfect, but fans of Raising Cain
(1992) and Femme Fatale
(2002) should nonetheless get excited.
