MARTIN SCORSESE COLLECTION 18

£29.99

Product description

A collection of four films directed by Martin Scorsese. The modern classic 'Goodfellas' (1990) is a violent true-life gangster epic. The film follows Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) as he rises through the ranks of the Mafia. Upon turning FBI informant to help pay for his drug addiction, Hill recalls how he got started in the Mob following the $6 million robbery of a Lufthansa cargo at a New York airport. Hill and his partners, Jimmy Conway (Robert De Niro) and Tommy De Vito (Joe Pesci), went on to rise through the ranks of the Mafia over three decades, eventually eliminating Paul Cicero (Paul Sorvino), the neighbourhood godfather who originally took Hill under his wing. Joe Pesci won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. 'Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore' (4526) is Scorsese's only female-centred film. When her husband is killed in a car crash, resigned housewife Alice Hyatt (Ellen Burstyn) heads south with her son Tommy (Alfred Lutter), determined to make her own way in life as an independent woman. She attempts to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming a singer, and finds a job in a lounge bar, but after a disastrous relationship with new boyfriend Ben (Harvey Keitel), she leaves and takes a job as a waitress. Along the way she meets the sensitive David (Kris Kristofferson), who treats her with respect - and starts her wondering whether a loving home and a quiet life are as worthless as she once thought. 'After Hours' (1985) is a dark tragi-comedy about Paul Hackett (Griffin Dunne), a lonely New York computer programmer who takes a taxi downtown for a date with a young woman, Marcy (Rosanna Arquette) whom he met in a downtown cafe. When all his money flies out of the taxi window, it touches off a series of nightmarish disasters which block his attempts to return to his Manhattan home. 'Who's That Knocking At My Door?' (1968) is Scorsese's semi-autobiographical debut feature, starring a then-unknown Harvey Keitel as J.R., a young Italian-American living in 1960s New York. Having hitherto spent his days and nights aimlessly hanging out with his friends on the streets of Little Italy, J.R. undergoes a rite of passage when he meets The Girl (Zina Bethune) on the Staten Island ferry. Beautiful, blonde and sophisticated, she opens up a whole new world to J.R., who falls completely in love with her, and strives to maintain the sanctity of their fledgling relationship by not sleeping with her. But when she reveals that she has already lost her virginity as the result of a date rape, he struggles to reconcile this revelation with his flawless, idealistic image of her.
