Martin Scorsese at IFFR
Last, visually-sparkling Scorsese film with De Niro and Sharon Stone in the murky world of Las Vegas in the seventies when everything seemed possible.
Bringing Out the Dead
Frank Pierce (Nicolas Cage) has been driving for two days and three nights non-stop in this ambulance through the streets of New York. He no longer feels tired or hungry. Like a lost angel he races through the night, siren blaring, to save the city's living dead.
King of Comedy
Brilliant satire about the American, media-infested culture in which, according to Scorsese, psychiatric cases can become famous and the famous are psychiatric cases. With Jerry Lewis and Robert de Niro.
Il mio viaggio in Italia
Not only one of the longest, but also one of the most passionate arguments made in favour of film culture and, more specifically, for post-war Italian cinema.
A Letter to Elia
This is an homage to the work of the American director Elia Kazan as seen through the eyes of another American master, Martin Scorsese. A wonderful, personal trip in which Scorsese expresses his admiration for Kazan’s work and its influence on him.
150 years after his birth, the spirit of film magician Georges Méliès still lives on. At once an adaptation of a children’s book and a celebration of the cinema in its pioneering days, Scorsese’s first excursion of in the realm of 3D is a stylistic triumph.
