    Pauline Kael on Dressed to Kill:

    The gliding, glazed-fruit cinematography is intoxicating but there's an underlay of dread, and there's something excessive in the music that's swooshing up your emotions. You know you're being toyed with. The apprehensive moods are stretched out voluptuously, satirically—De Palma primes you for what's going to happen and for a lot that doesn't happen. He sustains moods for so long that you feel emotionally encircled. He pulls you in and draws the wires taut or relaxes them; he practically controls your breathing.

    Pauline Kael on Blow Out:

    It's hallucinatory, and it has a dreamlike clarity and inevitability, but you'll never make
    the mistake of thinking that it's only a dream.

    “Without you” project initiated when I was given a pre-Production Panasonic GH4 camera body to test before its global launch. Then a simple test evolved to become a short film project when I realized the great potential of the camera. It took 10 days to turn this project from a blank sheet of paper to a successful yet challenging shoot that combined the talents of 14 talented and dedicated friends.
    I would love to thank all the people that made this project possible.

    Stay tuned for the “making of” blog post where I will share with you all the behind the scenes fun as well as the lessons learned during the production of “Without you”
    I hope you enjoy it…

    Sometimes you have to listen with your heart... One Saturday night, midway through an impromptu concert, Laura notices a customer she hasn't seen before with a look of complete disinterest on his face. Laura wouldn't usually mind, but with this guy, it's as though she wasn't even there. Who is he? And why can't Laura stop looking at him?
