About 4 By Scorsese Series
An American treasure, Martin Scorsese has been making films that for over fifty years that expand the art of cinema world-wide. While his name is almost synonymous with the best of Hollywood mainstream and independent film, Scorsese’s global influences include Italian New-Realism, French New Wave, and Japanese cinema (to name just a few).
4 BY SCORSESE spans his career, from his well-known blockbuster, GOODFELLAS, which did as much, if not more, to reimagining the gangster genre as any Coppola film, to his lesser known (and way underrated) comedy, AFTER HOURS; From his Boston set and highly acclaimed THE DEPARTED to his second and highly noteworthy film, ALICE DOESN’T LIVE HERE ANYMORE, which the 70’s sitcom “Alice” was based.
