The Age Of Innocence
While the phrase "wildly underrated" is probably not quite fitting for Martin Scorsese's 1993 period drama "The Age Of Innocence," the film certainly deserves a reappraisal. Arriving after "Goodfellas" and "Cape Fear," it was a big switch in direction for the filmmaker and given the lukewarm reception the movie received at the time, it wasn't a big surprise that two years later he essentially made a new version of "Goodfellas" with "Casino." But as we noted in our Martin Scorsese Retrospective last year, while the movie "is neither as broad nor as deep as Scorsese at his best, there is still a great deal to enjoy here." And perhaps the brief documentary below will inspire you to give it another chance.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
“We got hipsters in the house!” This phrase makes even less sense now than when I heard Leonardo DiCaprio say it last night at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City, where hundreds braved the horrendous weather to hear him talk about his decade-long partnership with director Martin Scorsese. The panel, which included longtime Scorsese editor Thelma Schoonmaker along with screenwriter Terence Winter, was part of a two-day series highlighting all five films Scorsese and DiCaprio have collaborated on. As for the hipster comment, Leo had just asked those in the audience whether they had already seen "The Wolf of Wall Street," one of the most divisive films of 2013.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
Ferociously vulgar, outrageously funny, a film about excess that nearly ran four hours long that still features over 50 songs in the movie, there is nothing nuanced or subtle about Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street." It's a go-for-broke, NC-17 skirting tale of debauchery that has left few feeling ambivalent about the picture. But if you've yet to sneak out of the family obligations and make it to the cinema to see this one for yourself, here are a few teases to get you moving. And if you have seen the flick, here's even more to dive into.

The Wolf Of Wall Street
Martin Scorsese has pretty much done it all in his career—tackling a wide variety of genres, delving into no small range of subject matter for documentaries and lending his name as a producer to projects for film and television. But did we nearly get his own "Kill Bill"? In the run-up to this week's release of "The Wolf Of Wall Street" (read our review), there was much talk about the editing process, the race to meet the deadline and the initial 4-hour cut of the movie. While Scorsese eventually got the movie down to a minute under three hours, it seems there was some thought about dropping that longer cut.

The egress from celluloid to digital is becoming a mass exodus in Hollywood. Theaters that still project film are becoming an endangered species, with film houses like the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles going as far as to launch their own "Save 35MM" campaign and petition in order to keep screening movies from film prints (they've won their battle for now). And right in step with theaters moving towards the inevitable future are the filmmakers themselves.
