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.

After early supporting roles in "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," "The Color of Money," "Platoon," "Stakeout" and "Good Morning, Vietnam," Forest Whitaker finally landed a leading role, winning Best Actor at Cannes in the process, in 1988's "Bird" the biopic of jazz legend Charlie Parker directed by Clint Eastwood. Nearly 25-years-on, it looks like the actor-director is finally returning to another jazz icon, stepping behind the camera this time, although enlisting the help of his old collaborator on the film.
