Scorsese and DiCaprio: A Retrospective

Scorsese and DiCaprio: A Retrospective

Thompson on Hollywood

As part of Paramount’s Shutter Island awards campaign, the American Cinematheque is mounting a two-day (Nov. 13-14) retrospective of director Martin Scorsese and actor Leonardo DiCaprio’s partnership, from Gangs of New York and The Aviator to The Departed and Shutter Island. All four films will screen and DiCaprio (in person) and Scorsese (via satellite) will participate in a conversation on November 14.

For their next collaboration, the pair are developing an American remake of Michael Haneke’s 2005 French thriller Cache (in which Daniel Auteuil and Juliette Binoche starred), but are both busy with a slew of separate projects. Scorsese is in production on Hugo Cabret and is ramping up Sinatra, and mob drama I Heard You Paint Houses with De Niro, Pacino and Pesci. DiCaprio is starring in Clint Eastwood’s Hoover and has The Great Gatsby and several other rumored projects in the works.

More information on the retrospective is here. Pictures after the jump.

Please, shut up! You don’t know what you’re talking about! I can understand the old Scorsese movies nostalgia, but you don’t have to bash him like that. The thing is you can’t let go of the past, man! Get over it! It’s not his downfall at all, he’s just being different, and you’re bashing him for that? Than you weren’t a real fan after all. I love his older movies but also love his recent work, I wish I had you’re luck of re-watching them in theatres, unfortunately I don’t live in USA. I hope the Academy members have their eyes on this, because both Scorsese and DiCaprio deserve at least a nomination next year, and they’ve kind of been underappreciated for a long time. Shutter Island was amazing! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for it!


Wow… I can’t wait to not be in attendance to avoid having to sit through any of these movies again…

Of all the Scorsese/_____ retrospectives the American Cinematheque could choose to mount, this is the one they decided on…? Why not just title it “Scorsese’s Worst: The Fall From Grace of One of America’s Greatest Artists?”


Wish I was there. DICAPRIO is the best actor of this or any generation and Scorsese one of the best directors. M SOUNDS LIKE A TOAD
