    Like an arrow straight to the pleasure center of the brain of Scorsese fetishists was the announcement a couple of years back of "The Irishman" a film that would potentially reunite Martin Scorsese with Robert DeNiro, for the first time since 1995's "Casino," for a film about real-life hitman Frank ...

    Martin Scorsese Talks About Growing Up On Some 'Mean Streets' At New York's Lincoln Center

    Writing in 2003, while inducting Martin Scorsese's “Mean Streets” into his Great Movies list, Roger Ebert deemed the film as possessing “an elemental power, a sense of spiraling doom, that a more polished film might have lacked.” Wise words from the man who counts the 69-...

    Awards Mania As 'The Artist,' 'The Tree Of Life' & 'The Descendants' Earn Top Critic Organization Honors

    Sunday was a major day for Oscar prognosticators, as a number of critics organizations went live with their end-of-2011 honors. Some films gained support, and some lost quite a bit of steam, but for those of you who look at the whole thing like a horse race, there was a lot of movement amongst a thi...
