Trademarks:[Split screen] Often uses split screens (created optically or using a split diopter while shooting) to build suspense and/or convey story information. This allows the audience to choose what to look at and engages them further in the story (Phantom of the Paradise (1974), Carrie (1976), Dressed to Kill (1980), Blow Out (1981), The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990), Mission: Impossible (1996), Snake Eyes (1998), Femme Fatale (2002) and The Black Dahlia (2006)). [Alfred Hitchcock homage] Films frequently reference the work of Alfred Hitchcock, using similar locations, camera techniques/compositions, musical scores by Bernard Herrmann (a frequent Hitchcock collaborator), and blondes as leading ladies. Frequently casts Robert De Niro, William Finley, John Lithgow, 'Kevin Dunn', Richard Belzer, Steven Bauer, Gregg Henry, Dennis Franz, Gary Sinise, Al Pacino, Sean Penn and ex-wife Nancy Allen. The "LONG TAKE" which is usually complimented by a series of elaborate tracking shots or dolly movements Dopplegangers (or evil twin), and femme fatales appear frequently in De Palma's films. Often shoots "tense" moments without any widening lens or zoom. When coupled with his trademark extended shot, it creates a feeling the viewer is in the scene. Safari Jacket [Voyeurism] Films often feature a protagonist who is voyeuristic by nature (Dressed to Kill (1980)), profession (Blow Out (1981)) or circumstance (Body Double (1984)).
