A very talented editor with a channel on Youtube cut together two montages showcasing the films of Martin Scorsese including clips from his indie debut Who’s That Knocking At My Door? (1968) all the way to The Departed (2006). Accompanying this collage of memorable and iconic cinematic imagery is the great music heard in Scorsese’s films (The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, Eric Clapton, etc.)
Montages (crude and professionally assembled) are all over Youtube but these particular montages are beautifully and thoughtfully edited together and display not only Scorsese’s eye and talent but the skill of his wonderful collaborators: editor Thelma Schoonmaker and cinematographers Michael Ballhaus and Robert Richardson.
This May, the Mayfair proudly presents The Martin Scorsese Film Festival (May 4-30) which includes seven of his films (Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, GoodFellas, Casino, Cape Fear and his latest Shutter Island)
So if you haven’t experienced his great films on the big screen and on celluloid, do yourself a favor and head over to the Mayfair.
But first, to get you in the mood, don’t forget to check out the montage.
Note: Part 1 seems to be missing but Part 2 is equally as great:
