If you were a film fan and had the Independent Film Channel in the early aughts, there was no doubt you were watching "Dinner For Five." Jon Favreau led the unscripted show that found him sitting down each week for a meal with four actors, directors, writers etc. to talk about film. The format was simple, and rarely deviated from its conversational tone, except when it came to the legendary Martin Scorsese.

If you were a film fan and had the Independent Film Channel in the early aughts, there was no doubt you were watching "Dinner For Five." Jon Favreau led the unscripted show that found him sitting down each week for a meal with four actors, directors, writers etc. to talk about film. The format was simple, and rarely deviated from its conversational tone, except when it came to the legendary Martin Scorsese.

Wisely, Favreau took a more 1:1 approach and result was a half-hour talk with the director about everything from his filmmaking style, his approach to music, editing and so much more. There is no one more interesting to hear talk about process, inspiration and more than Scorsese, so needless to say, if you haven't seen this, you'll want to make some time to take it all in. Watch below. [Ray Roman Media]
