30 hand picked films. A new one every day
A young man enters a bathroom, lathers his face, and shaves over and over again, nicking his face…
I wonder if this is what Lars von Trier is going to give Scorsese Obstructions under which to reproduce...
Self mutilation as a metaphor for self destructing involvement of America in Vietnam war... Terrific short by Scorsese.
A great film, although as someone who has a phobia against shaving with a razor this creeped me out.
A good metaphor, but a OK short film. Scorsese's college political gore does not surprise me or move me. A nicely spent 6-minutes ride, though.
After seeing this I can't help but wonder - what happened to Scorsese that he's making films now such as Departed or Shutter Island... love the credits in this one too :)
painful to watch
When I discovered this movie I developed a new found respect for Scorcese. Hands down my favorite Scorcese film that he ever did! The visual are amazing, the subject matter is executed exquisitely and in a very tasteful manner. Well done
A mundane act turned into a cringe-inducing moment, Scorsese's last student film is wonderfully simple. With his contrast of jazz and violence, this is not to be missed.
