Celebrate director Brian De Palma

Hear him speak about his legendary career with HamptonsFilm co-chair Alec Baldwin. Equally regarded as a leading member of the New Hollywood movement, the Master of the Macabre, and the heir-apparent to Hitchcock’s legacy as an unparalleled auteur of suspense filmmaking, Brian De Palma has held a singular role in American filmmaking for almost a half-century. After getting his start in the late sixties with a series of irreverent New Wave-esque satires, De Palma’s first major mainstream success: 1976’s CARRIE spanned to a directing career including SCARFACE, BLOW OUT, THE UNTOUCHABLES and MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE.

THE IRISHMAN, directed by Martin Scorsese

Starring Academy Award®-winning actors Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci on Friday, THE IRISHMAN is the Friday Centerpiece film on October 11. An epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.
