Martin Scorsese's Neglected Films


Phillip Sipiora, Coordinator
Gary D. Rhodes, Co-Coordinator

 


Martin Scorsese entered the ranks of promising American filmmakers in 1967 with his film, Who’s That Knocking at My Door. Since that time, Scorsese has made approximately five dozen films and documentaries, while winning numerous national and international awards for his work. Indeed, Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The King of Comedy, Casino, After Hours, Goodfellas, The Departed, and The Irishman remain exemplary cinematic art. Our proposed seminar will include 12 presentations that will discuss films and documentaries by Martin Scorsese that have been relatively neglected by either scholarly viewers or, in rare cases, by the general public. Participants in our  seminar will collectively explore the various qualities of these forms of cinematic art that warrant further consideration by scholars and general viewers. Individual presentation topics include: After Hours (1985), Amazing Stories (1985), New York Stories (1989), The Age of Innocence (1993), Kundun (1997), Il mio Viaggio in Italia (1999), Bringing Out the Dead, (1999), The Aviator (2004), Shutter Island (2010), Hugo (2011), Silence, (2016), and Killers of the Flower Moon (to be released in late 2021.
