WATCH: Martin Scorsese Talks Hitchcock, 'Taxi Driver' and Story vs. Plot with Jon Favreau

Check out this vintage clip from Jon Favreau’s IFC show “Dinner for Five” where guest Martin Scorsese talks about approaching story and character, his favorite Hitchcock films and more. Favreau’s full 30-minute conversation with Scorsese, from 2004, is below as well.

The man has good taste — and for that matter, so does Jon Favreau. Scorsese loves Hitch’s unsung 1956 noir “The Wrong Man,” starring Henry Fonda, which he says he screened for writer Paul Schrader when they were working on their masterful “Taxi Driver,” another film with noirish elements about man’s evolution from innocence to criminality. 

Writer/director Favreau has SXSW comedy/food porn hit “Chef” coming up. Also, revisit our “Wolf of Wall Street” interview with Scorsese here, and our ranking of his best dozen films here
