vanavond op Holland Doc: A personal journey
with Martin Scorsese through American movies

ScorseseDit jaar verscheen het boek Volgens Verhoeven van Paul Verhoeven en Rob Scheers waarin de grootste Nederlandse filmregisseur uit de geschiedenis zijn persoonlijke visie geeft op ruim zestig legendarische speelfilms. In 1995 gaf Martin Scorsese ook al eens een heel persoonlijke kijk op de filmgeschiedenis in A personal journey with Martin Scorsese through American movies. Deze vier uur durende documentaire wordt vanaf vanavond in vier delen uitgezonden door Holland Doc.

Despite its nearly four-hour running time, this is a uniquely personal look at movies from one of the late 20th century’s great directors and film historians. The film consists of head & shoulder shots of Scorsese speaking into the camera for a minute or two, followed by 10-15 minutes of film clips with Scorsese voice-over. Scorsese approaches the films in terms of how they affected him as a director foremost and as a storyteller/film fan second. Segments include “The Director as Smuggler,” “The Director as Iconoclast“, and so on. The Journey begins with silent masters like D.W. Griffith and ends in 1969 – when Scorsese began to make films; as he says in closing, “I wouldn’t feel right commenting on myself or my contemporaries.”
