This movie is probably best known for a book written about the film’s production called The Devil’s Candy by Julie Salamon. Brian de Palma granted her complete access to every element of the film from script to screen. The stories behind are absolutely incredible.

Fir a breakdown of just one of these stories check out the excellent video essay from Patrick Willems about the single shot that cost over $80,000.
