An inspired artist in France, who goes by the name of Stan, has given us a glance at what today’s movies (and a few TV shows) would look like today on cassette, and they’re magnifique.
When Martin Scorsese finds a collaborator he likes to work with, he tends to make a habit of it. Robert De Niro (star of eight Scorsese flicks) and Leonardo DiCaprio (star of five) can certainly attest to that. But while they may be Scorsese’s most visible long-time collaborators, film editor Thelma Schoonmaker is by far the most entrenched. For over 50 years, Schoonmaker and Scorsese have been making movie magic together — from Scorsese’s 1963 student short, “What’s a Nice Girl Like You Doing in a Place Like This?,” to his 1967 first feature, “Who’s That Knocking at My Door,” to his latest Best Picture Nominee, 2013’s “The Wolf of Wall Street.” [Related: Should We Feel Guilty for Enjoying the Excess of ‘Wolf of Wall Street’?] Because of this relationship, Schoonmaker, herself a three-time Oscar winner, has unique insight into Scorsese’s masterworks.
UPDATE: Jan. 16, 2014: Leonardo DiCaprio won the Golden Globe and has been nominated for an Oscar. Leonardo DiCaprio has earned his fourth Oscar nomination and second-ever Golden Globe win (he’s been nominated nine times) for his role in “The Wolf of Wall Street.“ And he wants you to know it was on his terms. The film about greed gone too far has been Leo’s passion project dating back to 2006 — when he was finishing up that other Martin Scorsese film, “The Departed.” The 39-year-old actor said such as he addressed a roomful of moviegoers in early Jan. at the ArcLight Hollywood as his father and stepmother looked on from the first row.
