In this episode of the show we close our EPALMARCH series a.k.a. 4 DECADES OF DE PALMA by talking about The Black Dahlia, a neo noir adaptation of a James Ellroy novel that ultimately led to De Palma leaving Hollywood for good. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about the noir elements of the story, its multiple narrative problems, James Ellroy’s place in the process of adapting his novel, De Palma’s directorial voice amidst the dense plotting, unidimensionality of the characters and much more!
Tune in and enjoy!
