Brian De Palma's PASSION (2012)

No, they haven't remade THE HOWLING - not yet. Noomi Rapace in De Palma's PASSION.

Finally caught up with Brian De Palma's PASSION. Say what you will, and it does look skimpily budgeted and cast with runners-up (neither Noomi Rapace nor Rachel McAdams seem ideal or complementary casting), the man knows how to direct camera movements. I consistently felt I was in the audience of a real filmmaker - a rare thing these days. At times throughout the third act, I could have sworn that filmmaker was Joe Dante and that the art director was little Anthony, wishing the characters into Cartoon Land. But when the screen split, my heart grew 10 sizes that day. He needs to work with a writer, though.
