There’s nothing like suspense with just enough sexy to make me tingly in all of the right places. The fact that it’s Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace excites me ten fold alone! Brian De Palma’s Passion looks as if it might be a top shelf thriller. De Palma, famous for directing such bad-ass movies as Scarface, Carlito’s Way, and the first Mission: Impossible, has been away from the directors chair for a few years now, but it looks like he’s coming back with a bang.
The trailer is unfortunately only a tantalizing glimpse, but according to IMDB the film’s synopsis is “A young businesswoman plots murderous revenge after her boss and mentor steals her idea.” Well, sure, but it looks way sexier than that! De Palma is a legendary director whose experience is really only rivaled by a select few in the industry, so I have little doubt that, especially with two such extraordinary actresses, the film will be anything awesome. I definitely can’t wait to get my eyes all over it!
On a side note, I know Scarface has exploded in the realm of pop culture in the last decade or so, but what is everyone else’s favorite Brian De Palma movie? For me, it’s Casualties of War. I would even go so far to say that it’s one of my favorite movies of all time and I am still blown away with how powerful and moving it is every time I watch it.
