Dr Bruce Isaacs from the Film Studies program on the best scenes from Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese.
Martin Scorsese is widely considered to be one of the best living film directors. As a major retrospective of his work opens at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Dr Bruce Isaacs from the University of Sydney's Film Studies program dissects six classic Scorsese scenes.

"One the greatest film openings, this is Scorsese mashing realism and a Godardian free-spirited style."
"‘You Talkin’ to Me?’ – One of the iconic sequences of the New Hollywood." Watch the video here.
"Scorsese's return to an American neo-realism, and one of the greatest of all method performances from De Niro." Watch the video here.
