ROLLING THUNDER REVUE (2019): New Trailer For Documentary About Bob Dylan By Martin Scorsese…

The spirit of America in 1975 and the joyous music that Bob Dylan performed during the fall of that year is the focus of Rolling Thunder Revue – A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese.

It is both a documentary and concert film that features , besides Dylan himself,  Allen Ginsberg, Patti Smith, Joan Baez…

You know when you hear of an older artist who’s highly celebrated by so many people, especially by a particular generation and a few young- old heads? Yet you yourself know little to none of that artist’s music. Some of their songs may sound familiar but you can’t really name any of it because you’ve never been pulled to purposefully listen. That artist for me is s Bob Dylan. Michael Hutchence of INXS is another and it just so happens Hutchence also has a documentary trailer released in the same week

A part of me is quite curious about both artists, but I think they’ll probably remain the kind I’ll need a super fan to convince me to listen to. Then, before you know it, I’m a serious fan!

It could happen. It may not but it could.

Do you happen to be a Dylan and / or Hutchence fan? Am I really missing out?

Alfred Hitchcock is a name all fans of film learn about sooner or later. He is the most famous British director and has inspired many directors after him.

In this Kent Jones directed documentary, a selection of some of the best film directors of today talk about how much Hitchcock influenced their own work. Particularly what they learned of Hitchcock’s approach to film making, in French director Francoise Truffaut’s 1966 publication, Cinema According to Hitchcock…

Martin Scorsese, David Fincher and Wes Anderson are three of the directors who share their experience in Hitchcock / Truffaut.

THE WOLF OF WALL STREET (2013): Who Knew Greed Could Be So Entertaining?

Martin Scorsese’s Wolf Of Wall Street (2013) is absolutely dripping with testosterone, not that this should be surprising.

Typical of all other popular accounts of life on Wall Street, there’s plenty, and then some – of the expected excess and debauchery.

Based on a true story about the rise and fall of Jordan Belfort (Dicaprio’s character), the audience, particularly the ambitious will relate to the protagonist’s determination to succeed, as well as get some insight into the many ways the American dream can go very wrong indeed.

With  plenty of well written male banter (one of my favourite things), and great performances all round, you will spend a surprising amount of time laughing. Leonardo Dicaprio and his more than qualified supporting cast absolutely deliver.

The Mark Hanna character played by Matthew McConaughey is so entertaining that you’ll find yourself wanting more.

Jonah Hill, an Actor better known for comedy hits including Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Superbad (2007) is great as Donny Azoff. Azoff’s teeth and hair may be highly questionable, but you’ll see that Hill’s performance certainly isn’t.

Girls will definitely enjoy the film but I have a strong suspicion that boys will love it more.

Happy Wolf Of Wall Street 🙂
