Il mio viaggio in Italia

Martin Scorsese Verenigde Staten, 1999

Matthew Martens's rating of the film My Voyage to Italy

Heartfelt and nostalgic, albeit aligned with the auteurist romance of visionaries pushing cinema "forward," Scorsese's travelogue often feels more personal than it really is -- that is, there are many more allusions to the profound impact these films have had on him than there are descriptions of what that impact amounted to in his life or his craft. This is cheerleading, but so what? I like this team.
