Phantom of the Paradise

The Late Show!

Buy Tickets Brattle passes accepted

(1974) dir Brian De Palma w/William Finley, Paul Williams, Jessica Harper, Gerrit Graham [92 min]
We’re huge fans of this campy cult classic from director Brian de Palma, and we’re excited that it’s among the first titles that 20th Century Fox has added to their DCP inventory. Music impresario Swan (diminutive ‘70s star Williams) steals the musical score and the star of unstable composer Winslow Leach’s new show. Leach tries to sabotage the production but is instead horribly disfigured and becomes The Phantom of Swan’s rock palace, The Paradise. A cult film seemingly from conception, PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE is simultaneously a damning critique of 70s rock excess and an over-the-top, glam-rock confection. Digital Presentation
