One of the most talented, influential, and iconoclastic filmmakers of all time, Brian De Palma's career started in the 60s and has included such acclaimed and diverse films as Carrie, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, Scarface, The Untouchables, Carlito’s Way, and Mission: Impossible. Take a look at the new poster for the new documentary about filmmaker Brian De Palma, titled simply just De Palma, from directors Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow. The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year to glowing reviews from critics and was picked up by A24 for release this year. They've put out the first poster which features artistic imagery of De Palma and some of the iconic scenes from his films outside the window next to him.
Here's the first official poster for Baumbach & Paltrow's feature-length documentary De Palma, from A24:
In this lively, illuminating and unexpectedly moving documentary, directors Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow engage in a personal and candid discussion with De Palma, exploring not only his life and work but also his singular approach to the craft of filmmaking and his remarkable experiences navigating the film business, from his early days as the bad boy of New Hollywood to his more recent years as a respected veteran of the field. In the end, what emerges is a funny, honest, and incisive portrait of a truly one-of-a-kind artist, and an exhilarating behind-the-scenes look at the last 50 years of the film industry through the eyes of someone who has truly seen it all. Directed & Produced by Noah Baumbach & Jake Paltrow. This first premiered at Venice last year. A24 will release De Palma in theaters starting June 10th.

Caught this at NYFF last year - for a movie that entirely consists of one guy sitting in a chair and talking intercut with clips of his movies, it is surprisingly hilarious, informative and touching. Definitely recommend. Also, that poster is dope as hell.
