All Those Years of Working Together Gave Martin Scorsese a Pretty Decent Robert De Niro Impression

4 February 2016 8:28 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Just like Tom Hiddleston, Chris Tucker, and Bradley Cooper, Martin Scorsese has joined the ranks of celebrities who have entertained their late-night hosts by doing impressions of Robert De Niro. The director debuted his pretty decent impression while talking to fellow De Niro impression-doer  Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. (They both did Goodfellas De Niro, of course.) The best part of Scorsese's appearance, however, comes when he discusses his friendship with De Niro. As he puts it, "I like to think we melted into each other." Just a couple of buds, these two. »

Watch Martin Scorsese Impersonate Robert De Niro on 'Fallon'

4 February 2016 6:58 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jimmy Fallon coerced a charming Robert De Niro impression out of Martin Scorsese on The Tonight Show Wednesday as the director discussed his friendship with the famed actor.

Fallon, as he told Scorsese, has done his fair share of De Niro impressions over the years — "In front of him, and behind his back," he cracked — and asked the director if he'd cultivated one after working with the actor for so long.

While Scorsese demurred at first, he said of his relationship with De Niro, "Over the years, we kind of, »

Dirty Grandpa Starts With Robert De Niro Masturbating And It’s All Downhill From There

22 January 2016 11:56 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lionsgate

Rating: ★★

The director of Dirty Grandpa, Dan Mazer, came on stage before the UK press screening of his latest comedy, as is customary, to give a little speech selling the movie. He opened with, “I’m aware you had better things to do tonight.” Joke’s on him – I didn’t, but he was still right.

Dirty Grandpa is made with the full awareness that it isn’t funny. It makes an endless stream of faux outrageous gags (sometimes the same ones repeated from half an hour before) in the lethargic belief that overwhelming quantity can make up for a dearth of quality. By the sheer law of averages there are a couple of giggle-worthy moments, but the movie is as surprised as you are when they do; whereas a good, self-assured comedy would typically edit in natural pauses between jokes to allow time for audiences to laugh, here »

Brett Ratner adapting story based on Goodfellas’ Henry Hill

Henry Hill's story was told in Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas - but not all of it...

The story of mobster Henry Hill was infamously told in Martin Scorsese’s stunning Goodfellas. He was played in that movie by Ray Liotta, but it didn’t cover Hill’s full story. Nor did the other movie based around Hill's life, that was released at the same time, the Steve Martin/Rick Moranis comedy, My Blue Heaven.

For as the Espn television movie Playing For the Mob charted, Hill was also involved in a scandal where he tried to fix basketball games in Boston in the late 1970s. And now there are plans to bring that story to the big screen.

Brett Ratner is linked to this one, with his RatPac Entertainment set to bring the story to the movies. It’s unclear as of yet if Ratner has earmarked »

21 January 2016 8:56 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Shades of Blue” viewers saw a side of Ray Liotta they never imagined from the “Goodfellas” star on Thursday’s shocking episode. Liotta’s character, corrupt New York City police Lt. Matt Wozniak, locked lips with internal affairs chief Donnie Pomp (Michael Esper) in Episode 3 of the NBC drama. Later, Donnie is seen showering, post-sex, as Liotta places a call to Det. Harlee Santos (Jennifer Lopez). Needless to say, the gay kiss sent social media into a frenzy and became a top trend on Twitter before the episode had even aired on the West Coast.

21 January 2016 8:00 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Matt Wozniak, has given viewers the Ray Liotta they’ve come to expect. But Thursday night they saw different side of Liotta, one that probably caught them off guard. Midway through Episode 3, during a heated exchange, Liotta’s corrupt cop Wozniak shares a kiss with internal affairs chief Donnie Pomp, played by Michael Esper. »

Watch a Video Essay on the Method of Martin Scorsese’s Madness as Director Remembers David Bowie

14 January 2016 6:30 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With the long-brewing, long-awaited Silence finally arriving, 2016 will be a big year for Martin Scorsese. And with the specter of a new film from our personal favorite hanging in the air, we should take time to explore a slightly fresh perspective on his amazing career: the juxtaposition of neo-realism and postmodernism.

If you can look past the, let’s say, overly emphatic voiceover, there’s something to be gleaned from this video’s proper use of visual examples — precisely what’s needed for an explication of juxtaposition and why any of that matters in the first place. If something can get you to think about Goodfellas and Raging Bull in any new ways, a bit of commendation is in order.

Giving this video an unfortunate significance is the passing of David Bowie, a collaborator — and, sadly, only one-time collaborator — of Scorsese. As much as people forget his role, the musician-actor made a rather remarkable, »

Watch: 9-Minute Video Essay Explores The Influence Of Neo-Realism & Post-Modernism In Martin Scorese's Films

12 January 2016 12:34 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Is there anything Martin Scorcese can’t do? Of course, there’s a science of sorts to the movie magic that he so effortlessly conjures in film after film, and this new video essay courtesy of The Film Theorists does a fairly solid job at breaking it all down.   Read More: The 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2016 The video, titled “A Method to Martin Scorsese’s Madness,” touches upon a fairly obvious point in relation to the director’s style: that is, his fusion of the gritty Italian neo-realism he worshiped as a young man and the opulent post-modernism that rears its head in pictures like “Raging Bull” and “Goodfellas.” It’s not exactly the most revelatory point in the world, but it’s certainly worth exploring when one considers just how many younger filmmakers (Quentin Tarantino, Nicolas Wending Refn, Guy Ritchie, etc.) have liberally borrowed his style.

The Cinematography of Emmanuel Lubezki: Shaping the Landscape of Modern Film

6 January 2016 10:42 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki is a brilliant cinematographer whose work has helped shape the landscape of modern cinematic photography. During his 32-year career, Lubezki has worked with such greats as Mike Nichols, Joel and Ethan Coen, Terrence Malick, and Michael Mann, as well as technology-defying directors such as Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro González Iñárritu. He even worked alongside Martin Scorsese as a camera operator on The Rolling Stones documentary Shine a Light, alongside Robert Richardson.

Lubezki’s latest project reunites him with Iñárritu for a brooding, intense historical epic about fur trapper Hugo Glass. Although the movie itself receives a somewhat mixed reception, Lubezki’s photography alone is worth the price of admission, as we noted in our yearly cinematography wrap-up. Before checking out The Revenant when it opens wide this Friday, we’ve selected some of our favorites in his illustrious filmography, each exquisite in their own unique ways. Please enjoy below, »

Joy Is A Very Stressful Movie (And That’s A Very Good Thing)

1 January 2016 12:46 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Rating: ★★★

Once the mad organisation of Christmas and forced merriment of New Year’s Eve is over, and the week-long mulled wine stupor and January 1st hangover begin to subside, the real impact of this new year kicks in; back to work, a return of responsibilities, countless distant commitments now occurring “This Year”, facing the fact that Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is less than three months away. Urgh…

It’s all so stressful, so what better way to alleviate the tension than to trot along to the local multiplex for some high quality escapism? Well, if you are heading out in the New Year to “switch off your brain” (a dumb term, but let’s go with it), then maybe Joy isn’t the best film for you.

David O. Russell’s latest awards season release is a stressful, at points overwhelming movie. Jennifer Lawrence »
