Martin Scorsese has a new film, The Irishman, debuting this month to theaters and Netflix. The legendary director has also made some unflattering comments about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Are these statements legitimate concerns about the effect of blockbuster cinema on art house filmmaking, or the grouchy rants of a curmudgeon? As one of Cinemavino’s favorite directors, how do such complaints affect the legacy of Martin Scorsese?
For this episode of Cinemavino, we bring in a special guest, Daniel Gimlin, to discuss Scorsese’s Marvel comments, and talk about The Irishman. We also drink The Bull, a delicious, fruit-forward red wine.
Thanks to Daniel for all his great insights, and we hope you enjoy this week’s Cinemavino! (Also, despite Travis’s comments, we loved having Sean Jordan last week! Don’t ever let Trav’s sarcasm fool you.)
