This collection of production-diary-style footage finds Brian De Palma on the set of his 2002 film Femme Fatale directing the shoot, a process that — as seen in these specific clips — includes rehearsals with actors Rebecca Romijn and Antonio Banderas, working through movement/blocking and fight choreography, and the management of the movie’s bravura opening setpiece that takes place at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival. It’s a brief but direct bit of behind-the-scenes material, providing a glimpse of the distinctive filmmaker in the midst of his creative environment.
