Watch: ‘Scorsese’s New York,” A Three-Minute Visual Love Letter

Watch: 'Scorsese's New York," A Three-Minute Visual Love Letter

Martin Scorsese has devoted the bulk of his career to developing memorable characters, most recently in “The Wolf of Wall Street,”  but he’s spent decades chronicling the character development of New York City.

This short, sweet, musical tribute, “Scorsese’s New York,” uses clips from 14 of his films to compose a 3-minute video. From the debonair villain-version of Daniel Day-Lewis in “Gangs of New York” to DiCaprio as “The Wolf of Wall Street,” you’ll probably recognize some of those unique-to-New-York cinematic moments.

Robert Kolodny, an editor at House of Nod, put together this project to pay tribute to the much-loved director and the hometown that served as his muse since the 1960s. Read more about it here

Ugh, another "love letter". Writers need to search for different descriptors. It was bad enough reading about Scorsese's "love letter to cinema" over and over in reference to Hugo.

Sorry but I found this syrupy, melodramatic and missing everything that is Scorcese, it felt like a 'movie moments' compilation on youtube or one of the cringeworthy posthumous Oscar tributes, whilst lacking in all the intensity and emotion that exemplifies his work, not to mention the horrendous piece of music that has been used. As well as showing the brutality, bitterness and beauty of New York Scorcese is known for his incredible choices in music, pacing and acting, this piece am sorry to say, misses all of that. You have diluted some genius moments here.

Beautiful and endearing. Who would you consider as the filmmakers that have made Los Angeles their muse?
