Martin Scorsese, what can we say? A great director and a great guy who has given us some amazing insights into a variety of different worlds and a range of fantastic characters. Whether you’re a fan or not, you cannot deny the impact he’s had on film making and surely you’ll thank him for defining the careers of actors like Harvey Keitel, Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Leonardo DiCaprio (to name a few). So far we’ve watched four of his films on The Podfather and cannot get enough! We’ve praised the soundtracks, loved (and questioned) his editing, cringed at the violence, laughed at the dialogue and marvelled at the undeniably intriguing feel of his work.
The exhibition has something for everybody. From scripts to props, costumes to correspondence and family furniture to scribbled notes, this amazing display at ACMI offers a huge insight into Scorsese’s life and perhaps an even greater insight into filmmaking itself. Running until the 18th of September, if you don’t go you’re a total ___(insert Joe Pesci styled insult here).
