  1. Caitlin's rating of the film A Letter to Elia

    Scorsese's love letter to Kazan and to cinema itself. I could listen to Scorsese talk about films ALL DAY.

  5. wwangle's rating of the film A Letter to Elia

    If you thought A Personal Journey... and Il Mio Viaggio were personal films, this one is even more straightforward. Besides the admirative introduction to Kazan's works, what's interesting is to see Scorsese explain how Kazan inspired him to become a filmmaker while I am sure, now days, Scorsese is usually known to be the influencer himself. In a way, he is casting his spotlight on the filmmakers he himself cares for

  6. Adam Suraf's rating of the film A Letter to Elia

    Scorsese really gets it, what it means to be a cinephile, to understand a movie for more than it's surface, take in the images and meaning and apply it to other things. His commentary here on "On the Waterfront" and "East of Eden", Kazan's best films, is both insightful and poignant.
