At first, his films comprised of such black-and-white films as(1965). He then discovered a young actor whose fame would influence Hollywood forever. In 1968, de Palma made the comedic film Greetings (1968) starring Robert de Niro in his first ever credited film role. The two followed up immediately with the film The Wedding Party (1969) and(1970).

After making such small-budget thrillers such as(1973) and(1976), De Palma was offered the chance to direct a film based on thenovel "Carrie". The story deals with a tormented teenage girl who finds she has the power of telekinesis. The film starred,and, and was for De Palma, a chance to try out the split screen technique for which he would later become famous.

(1976) was a massive success, and earned the two lead females (Laurie and Spacek) Oscar nominations. The film was praised by most critics, and De Palma's reputation was now permanently secured. He followed up this success with the horror film(1978), the comedic(1980) (both these films featured, the crime film(1980), and another crime thriller entitled(1981) starring.

His next major success was the controversial, ultra-violent film(1983). Written byand starring, the film concerned Cuban immigrant Tony Montana's rise to power in the United States through the drug trade. The film, while being a critical failure, was a major success commercially.

Moving on from(1983), De Palma made two more movies before landing another one of his now-classics:(1987), starring old friend 'Robert de Niro' in the role of Chicago gangster Al Capone. Also starring in the film wereas the man who commits himself to bring Capone down, and, an old policeman who helps Costner's character to form a group known as the Untouchables. The film was one of de Palma's most successful films, earning Connery an Oscar, and gavea nomination for Best Score.

After(1987), De Palma made the Vietnam film(1989) starringand. The film focuses on a new soldier who is helpless to stop his dominating sergeant from kidnapping a Vietnamese girl with the help of the coerced members of the platoon. The film did reasonably well at the box office, but it was his next film that truly displayed the way he could make a hit and a disaster within a short time.(1990) starred a number of well-known actors such asand, yet it was still a commercial flop and earned him two Razzie nominations.

But the roller coaster success that De Palma had gotten so far did not let him down. He made the horror film(1992), and the criminal drama(1993) starringand. The latter film is about a former criminal just released fromthat is trying to avoid his past and move on. It was in the year 1996 that brought one of his most well-known movies. This was the suspense-filled(1996) starringand.

Following up this film was the interesting but unsuccessful film(1998) starringas a detective who finds himself in the middle of a murder scene at a boxing ring. De Palma continued on with the visually astounding but equally unsuccessful film(2000) which earned him another Razzie nomination. He met failure again with the crime/thriller(2002) the murder conspiracy(2006) and the controversial film(2007) which deals with individual stories from the war in Iraq.

Brian De Palma may be down for the moment, but if his box office history has taught us anything, it is that he always returns with a major success that is remembered for years and years afterwards.
