SCREENPLAY - BRIAN DE PALMA
In response to George W. Bush’s Iraq invasion, De Palma fashioned this multimedia experiment, a howl of rage against an unjust war. Recalling both Casualties of War in its focus on a particularly disturbing true episode of rape and murder and, in its looser style, the director’s early political films, Redacted—winner of the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival—incorporates a panoply of twenty-first-century modes of address: surveillance footage, Internet streaming videos, chat rooms, and even contemporary European art-film documentary.
