Storyline

Now middle-aged, mobster Murray looks back at his humble beginnings as a bootlegger and his rise to becoming wealthy and highly influential. Through it he talks about how much of his success and happiness is due to the support of his "friend" Joe. Unfortunately the only one who blindly believes Joe is anything close to a friend is Murray, because it's obvious to everyone that Joe back-stabs him at every chance and is sleeping with his wife.

Okay what'd you think is Scorsese's masterwork ? For me it's GOODFELLAS but chances are you might have picked another one involving violent foul mouthed gangsters stamping on faces hurling insults while they send their victim in to eternal oblivion . In summary Scorsese is the God of the mob movie and this short film titled IT'S NOT JUST YOU MURRAY is the living legend's first foray in to crime cinema

If there's one problem with Scorsese it's that he sometimes tends to remake the same film . He remade GOODFELLAS as CASINO and both BRINGING OUT THE DEAD and THE KING OF COMEDY are reworkings of TAXI DRIVER . In this 15 minute short film he touches upon elements that interest him in films such as family and friendships turning sour and living the American dream by making the business of America illegal business . That said the tone is very much light hearted and humorous compared to much of his other acclaimed works and you wouldn't really be able to tell it was a Scorsese film . It's essential viewing for anyone interested in the director's work and is a very amusing short film in its own right that I would have enjoyed regardless of who made it
