A major retrospective looks at the master of cinematic reinvention, Martin Scorsese.

The brilliant Cinémathèque continues its series of major retrospectives by tackling the immense figure of Martin Scorsese. Scorsese represents for American cinema what Neil Young does for folk music: the quintessence of reinvention, and the reappropriation of a medium for a rougher post-60s counter-culture. Scorsese’s brutal dynamism and on-location filming – in part inspired by Italian neorealism and new wave cinema – brought us classics from ‘Mean Streets’ to ‘Taxi Driver’, and from ‘Shutter Island’ to ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’. Religion, passion, loss, redemption and money all take centre stage in Scorsese’s films, and the Cinémathèque’s portrait is sure to fascinate.
