    Watched it the other day for the first time in like 10 years...

    When Scorsese's name comes up on NT I rarely see this movie mentioned, but damn this was a helluva flick.

    Yeah, I just watched it On Demand last week. It's a nice ode to Hitchcock.

    She's been in a lot of movies. I think she's also in a band, or at least she was. During the opening credits I was thinking, "Wow, this isincredibly Hitchcocky." Then I saw they were done by Saul Bass, who did Hitchcock's credits. Then they ended and the film opens with an eye, and I hada sneaking suspicion that there would be a lot of similarities. My two favorite directors and De Niro with a Southern accent. [​IMG] What more could I ask for?

    This is the only De Niro/Scorsese combination I haven't seen. I'm gonna have to check it out this week on demand.

    scoresese actually references many film directors in his work. he is just as much a film historian/theorist as he is a film maker. he usestechniques from older generations and molded them together (in a sense) to make his own innovative style. i love this guy.
