NYFF: Public Argument at De Palma's Redacted Press Conference

This story has gotten picked up on a bunch of blogs; director Brian De Palma is fighting with his financier and distributor, Magnolia Pictures over the images of real war dead in his new film Redacted. At the New York Film Festival press conference for this film earlier this week, both parties kind of went at it a little in public. Though obviously there's kind of an "oooooh" factory any time people actually speak their mind in a forum like this, I do think it's an interesting debate over an important issue beyond all of that.
