I'm surprised nobody posted this here. TLDR: Brian De Palma makes an unsolicited dig at Steven Soderbergh, saying
“Steven Soderbergh, a visual director? Are you kidding?” De Palma said. “Give me an example of a great, visually memorable scene [from] Soderbergh or a silent sequence based on the staging…I saw an episode of ‘The Knick’ and there is nothing that [impressed me visually].”
I admire both directors, but I have to say this reflects poorly on De Palma (whose career effectively cratered around the same time Soderbergh's really took off, for what it's worth). Reading into his comments a bit, I'm inclined to think that De Palma (never, to say the least, the subtlest of directors) seems to mistake the sort of bravura effects for which he's known (dolly-zooms, split-focus shots, overhead shots, Steadicam marathons, etc.) with "visually memorable" cinema.
