Martin Scorsese Tells You All You Need to Know About Movies: AFI 2019 Tribute Reel

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent Friday night Martin Scorsese was feted at AFI’s Film Fest in the Chinese Theater. Scorsese has been around long enough that people actually spell his name right now. He would laugh at that, considering the late great Roger Ebert once spelled his name incorrectly in an early review out of Chicago. Scorsese has teamed with Robert De Niro nine times, that should be a record. (They were introduced by Brian de Palma.) But his editor The...

The Current War, Review: DC Edison v/s AC Westinghouse

The Current War, Review: DC Edison v/s AC Westinghouse Unless you do some background reading, this review included, you will not guess that the film is not about a conventional war but about the rivalry between Thomas Alva Edison, credited with inventing Direct Current operated incandescent bulbs, and their Alternating Current based, dynamo-run variants, developed by George Westinghouse, back in the 1880s. It’s a double-barrelled bio-pic that spouts too much jargon and is not saved by f...

Bob Shaw's Lairs for "The Wolf of Wall Street"

Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street sends up an especially bracing example based on the bestselling memoir of Jordan Belfort, played with Oscar-nominated flair by Leonardo DiCaprio. To convey the debauched life and times of this high-rolling shyster who conned unsuspecting investors into forking over $100 million plus in the late '80s and '90s, the filmtakes us deep into the lairs ...

Punters have commented that the orga...
