Martin Scorsese, 1980 (18)
This season, our film programme, The Screen at Contemporary, presents 24 Frames: the films and influences of Martin Scorsese.
We follow boxer Jake LaMotta over a series of years, though torments on and off the ring. A saga that moves balletically through themes of masculinity, paranoia, catholic guilt, class and redemption. Considered Scorsese’s masterpiece, it’s both brutal in its observation of human fragility and pure cinematic alchemy.
Exploring how the boxing ring shares similarities the ballet stage, we will be screening Scorsese’s favourite film, The Red Shoes on Wed 1 Apr, 6.30pm, and.
