It's amazing that MS is still going strong and FFC is basically out of film.  If you consider Twixt (whatever it's called) a film.

I seem to recall when Casino was released, that it was initially considered a capper on a trilogy consisting of it, Goodfellas and Mean Streets, with Mean Streets portraying the lowest on the criminal food chain. A quadrilogy, perhaps?

Holy shit, Silence is finally happening?

Not quite the once rumored Daniel Day-Lewis, Gael Garcia Bernal team up; but I'll take it.

It's a reverse "Lincoln". Neeson in. DDL out.

It's weird to say this considering I'd be happy to see him knock out movies for decades to come, but in a way if Scorsese is serious about only having a few more left in him, I think I'd be okay with it at this point. Wolf Of Wall Street has the sense of bringing his career to a full circle, marrying old and new, and like Gangs Of New York, Silence has been hanging in the background seemingly forever. Now that that one finally seems to be happening, I think his body of work will feel pretty complete. A final De Niro collaboration is the only other Marty holy grail left.

I remember something Scorsese said once about Kubrick, which was that on the one hand part of him wishes he'd made more movies, but at the same time what we have is enough. I think that's *almost* true of Scorsese himself. I mean let's be honest: his back catalogue is fucking ridiculous.

How GOODFELLAS Made Me Italian

One of the best articles Devin has ever written.

post #113 of 132

I own many Scorcese movies. For my favourite that is a tie between Taxi Driver & Goodfellas. 

 

However, I HATE Casino with a passion. Absolutely hate it. It really is far too violent.

I just saw this randomly on the internet.  So cool.  All three people in this scenario are classic and will never be repeated or even approximated.

Reminded me of a similar story....

 

Sean Penn/Chris Walken- 'At Close Range'

 

Quote:

"[Sean Penn] Really scared me. You can see it on the screen, because he did it very quickly. In the middle of the take, he ran off the set and I heard him say to the propman, 'Give me the other gun.' When he came back I was concerned that this wasn't the gun he had left with. Who knows? He's acting like some crazy actor and pointing it at my face, and it really scared me. It was near my eye. It was an empty gun - he knew exactly what he was doing. He just wanted to scare me, which is what he did.; I got mad afterward and yelled at him, then I said thank you. It's great when actors do that for each other. It's very generous."

 

-- Christopher Walken, Playboy magazine, 1997.

What the fuck did I just watch?

 

And they both got 13 M for that? Yikes.

It's an ongoing series of commercials, so who knows how many they'll end up having done.  But A-list actors get huge paydays for commercials overseas because they're so rare.

I guess if the casino is willing to pay.

post #121 of 132

I'm sure they shot alot of footage in those 2 days, as that's Scorsese's MO.

post #122 of 132

2 days worth of shooting loads of fun footage with Martin Scorsese at a casino in Manila. Sounds like tough work.

 

...

 

I'm just jealous.

post #123 of 132

Haha, that was fun.

 

It does highlight that I really wish Deniro would work with Scorsese again.  I feel like he still has one or two great roles left in him and Scorsese is the one to bring it out of him.

post #124 of 132
Isn't this the first time Scorsese and De Niro have worked together in 20 years? I know it's just some stupid ad but I'm surprised this team up hasn't made more of a splash.

And yes, at least one more proper collaboration between the two simply must happen.

'Taxi Driver' Oral History: De Niro, Scorsese, Foster, Schrader Spill All on 40th Anniversary

"On the eve of a screening at the Tribeca Film Festival, the film's stars, director and screenwriter recount the tension and tumult (trivia: Harvey Keitel’s pimp was originally written as black; producers "had to hire a gang to protect us from other gangs") that preceded a movie masterpiece."

Speaking of Scorsese, when are we going to get a glimpse of SILENCE? There's not another film coming out this year that I'm more eager to see.

I'm not sure I ever realized how close to death Scorsese came in the late 70's.

 

 

post #131 of 132
I think there was a Family Guy episode wondering if Scorsese died in the 70s.
post #132 of 132
I love De Niro's drive in that anecdote.
