While nearly every pocket of Martin Scorsese's career has been well-documented and is available to view in some form or another, the filmmaking legend still has some corners of his work that are a bit more difficult to seek out. But thanks to the age of the interwebs, one of his one off projects that currently isn't available on home video can now be streamed, that is until some copyright thug decides to take it town.

The Wolf Of Wall Street Leonardo DiCaprio Margot Robbie
A couple weeks back, things looked a bit uncertain for Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street." Reports surfaced that the filmmaker had only just put together his initial rough cut, and there was still a lot of work to be done if he was to make the previously planned November 15th release date. And things were so up in the air, ideas were floated to possibly move the movie to early 2014 instead, with Paramount eyeing a similar date to "Shutter Island," one of the director's biggest box office hits. But audiences, fans and awards season bookies can now start breathing a bit easier as it looks like 'Wolf' will still bite this year.

Roger Deakins' Top 5 Films
Denis Villenueve's brilliantly unnerving "Prisoners" is being sold primarily based on the star wattage of its cast, which includes Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Melissa Leo, Maria Bellow, Terrence Howard, and Paul Dano, and its gripping, worst-fear-realized setup, involving the mysterious abduction of two young girls (read our review here). But "Prisoners" packs a secret weapon every bit as powerful as Wolverine looking for his missing daughter: the work of cinematographer Roger Deakins. With "Prisoners," Deakins pushes his love of source lighting to wild extremes: a candlelight vigil turns into a field of starry bulbs, a captive's face is illuminated solely by the light that seeps in through a small hole, and ashy snowflakes are only visible due to headlights and the spinning lights of a police car. Deakins' work is deeply beautiful, moody stuff (some subtle camera moves also stand-out as best-of-year material too), intrinsic to the movie's oppressively moody atmosphere.

AMC clearly knows which side their bread is buttered on, and who is spreading. Even with "Breaking Bad" coming to an end in two weeks, they've already greenlit a prequel series, centered around sleazy lawyer Saul Goodman. And now, the network's other smash success show is also expanding, with AMC clearly taking a page from their major studio counterparts.

Harvey Weinstein Says Martin Scorsese's Original Final Cut On 'Gangs Of New York' Was 3 1/2 Hours (But You Won't See It)

Post-"Goodfellas," there's are few misfires in Martin Scorsese's oeuvre more ambitious than "Gangs Of New York." An epic, sprawling tale of the rise of modern day New York City from its gritty, earthy and violent beginnings, the film required a big canvas to tell the story, but with Harvey Weinstein producing the movie, it was inevitable there would be a battle over the length.

The term “dark comedy” used to mean a film or program that dealt with laughs but also discomforting adult situations and themes. For most filmmakers today, that now serves as a green light to portray death and violence with as little consequence or moral dimension whatsoever, giving protagonists a chance to guiltlessly resolve their complex problems with a little casual bloodshed. Slapstick has become so degraded that now all it takes is a blow to the head for directors to believe they’ve earned the audience’s approval, as if they are dogs yapping at the sensory stimulation. If that’s the case, then Luc Besson’s “The Family” is best left to the kennel.

Along with Ridley Scott's "The Counselor," Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" is one of the highest profile movies coming this fall that doesn't yet have a festival home. And while that could potentially change with Telluride coming up this weekend (organizers always keep their slate under lock and key until the first day), there is still a movie to market, and today comes another peek at the film from behind-the-scenes.
