MARTIN SCORSESE'S FAVORITE FILMS
Posted: Fri, Sep 5 2008 - 09:48 AM
I've been on a Martin Scorsese kick lately -- I recently added After Hours and The King of Comedy to my Scorsese shelf (both highly recommended). As a result of this latest obsessive-compulsion, I am posting the first of perhaps three articles regarding this legendary filmmaker.
Produced in 1993 by Cinemax and The American Film Institute, the following program, Martin Scorsese's Favorite Films, is a fascinating look into Marty's passions and influences. If you've never heard Scorsese wax cinematic, I dare say there is no other film historian alive today who has the sheer depth of knowledge regarding the history of movies. The guy is a walking, fast-talking encyclopedia.
Here he reminisces about the films of his very-impressionable youth.
Have at it -- more coming soon.
