"What I meant was his work is not defined alone by a few gangster films, even though it is what he is known for he makes many other types of films."
I know, but you put words in my mouth. I was responding to what Rambo said regarding Scorsese not always delivering, but you claimed I said only his gangster films are worth watching, which is a gross mis-characterization of my post.
What I did say is that for me and other folks I know, only his gangster films are truly memorable, which isn't to say his films aren't great or well-made, but no one I know, or I've ever known, other than hardcore Scorsese fan, has said New York, New York, for example, is nearly as epic as say, Goodfellas or Casino, the latter two of which have grown in popularity with each passing year whereas other Scorsese films have been largely forgotten.
Off topic here, I know. But. Charlie sheen just tried to fire selma blair from his show Anger Management. It stems from her going to the producers to complain about his laziness and over unprofessional conduct. Said it is making her job extremely difficult. Lol hilarious.
rumor is sheen wants to replace her with mila kunis for 10 eps for a million a piece.
I get the feeling this movie will be seen like when you know how a bunch a people like Pacino's Scarface (you see the posters everywhere) because it is all about money, ambition, power and "the world is yours" bullsh*t, giving hope that anyone can make it...one way or another? Well, this is will be that, but for white collar wealthy pricks.
I wonder if this movie will actually put the rich under the microscopes like those f*cks from the banks that were pocketing the bail out money or ENRON?
BTW, funny thing I read about Scorsese...he always looks level headed and calm, but he actually made Raging Bull for De Niro's sake to help him in his passion project(he had declined De Niro's offer to make it several times) and to give himself a job/ something to do after Scorsese nearly died from a drug overdose triggered by depression stemming from Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore tanking...his follow up of Taxi Driver.
Although never a fan of sports or sports movies, Scorsese related to this La Motta movie as a type of wanting redemption, something he knew about...the rest as they say is history.
