And that is completely understandable. My problem with De Palma is that he's a schlock director. Every film buff's viewing needs some schlock and some of it is immensely entertaining. It's when people start comparing him to the directors he's "inspired" by, I take umbrage with it. Yes, talk about film needs to be un-snobbed but that shouldn't open the door to every imitative hack who ever made a film to be taken seriously.
