WATCH: Martin Scorsese Talks the Influence of the Great John Cassavetes

The BFI has posted this clip from “A Personal Journey Through American Movies,” wherein Martin Scorsese discusses the influence of writer-director-actor John Cassavetes (1929-1989). “Relationship were all he was interested in: the laughter and the games, the tears and the guilt, the whole roller coaster of love,” says cinephile Scorsese. Watch below.

As a fledgling filmmaker in the early ’70s, Scorsese was literally taken in by Cassavetes, who let the young Scorsese sleep at one of the “Minnie and Moskowitz” locations and gave him an assistant sound editor’s credit. Scorsese has said that the two films that most informed his career were Orson Welles’ “Citizen Kane” and Cassavetes’ “Shadows.”
