Brian de Palma
 Brian de Palma is an influencial director particularly through his work in the 1980s. He met Robert deNiro early in his career and his first films in the 1960s featured this actor. Some of his films in the early 1970s like Phantom Of The Paradise with a mixture of styles and themes. With Obsession he he used various themes from Alfred Hitchcock and he used those ideas through his career. In 1976 he filmed the Stephen King story Carrie which was his first big hit. With Blow Out he moves to a more complex thriller. Scarface is an updated remake of the earlier 1932 version. In Wise Guys he had a change of direction with a move into comedy. The Untouchable was a critical and commercial success though Raising Cain had very mixed responses. He directed the first of the Mission Impossible films and took the olf television series and reinvented it to the 1990's. His more recent films have had less success.
