Scorsese’s New Movie is Too Long, According to People Who Haven’t Seen It (or His Other Movies, Apparently)

A couple of days back, Paramount released a new trailer and made a pair of announcements about Martin Scorsese’s new film, The Wolf of Wall Street. First, as rumored, it is not going to make its original mid-November release date; instead, it has been pushed back to Christmas Day, bumping the studio’s previously-earmarked Christmas release, Kenneth Branagh’s Jack Ryan reboot, into 2014. And since one of the supposed reasons for that push-back was the time Scorsese had spent wrestling with a rough cut clocking in anywhere from three to four hours, they went ahead and announced the picture’s running time: 165 minutes, or two and three-quarter hours. … Read More

What It’s Like to Read ‘The Great Gatsby’ for the First Time at 37

With Baz Luhrmann’s splashy adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Great American Novel contender hitting theaters Friday, Flavorwire is devoting this week to all things Great Gatsby. Click here to follow our coverage.

I’m still not sure how I’d made it to age 37 without reading The Great Gatsby, but this much was for sure: I was going to have to.

Artwork Inspired by the Films of Martin Scorsese

From Taxi Driver to Raging Bull to GoodFellas, few filmmakers have turned out as many influential movies as the great Martin Scorsese — and, come to find out, he’s also inspired plenty of artists from other disciplines.
