Watch: Stellar 'Scorsese's New York' Video Profiles His Love for NYC
My city, my home, my love. In late 2012 I moved to New York City, one of the best decisions in my life, and I've fallen madly in love with the city and everything it has to offer. Many prominent filmmakers call NYC their home as well, and one of those filmmakers is Martin Scorsese, who has made a number of films set in/around New York. House of Nod has put together a quick 3-minute video featuring clips from 14 of Scorsese's movies, from After Hours to Gangs of New York to Goodfellas to Mean Streets to Raging Bull to Taxi Driver in a piece they call "Scorsese's New York". It's a wonderful tribute to the place I now call home.
Here is Robert Kolodny's short video Scorsese's New York in full, high def via Vimeo:
The short 3-minute video was edited by Robert Kolodny, as a House of Nod Love Letter. Via The Playlist. From Vimeo: A visual love letter to New York City through the eyes and talents of its most enduring son, Martin Scorsese. A study in cinema on the aesthetic that Scorsese has distilled and reinvented over a five decade career, capturing America's most vibrant and gritty urban environment. New York inspires Marty…Marty inspires New York. "All clips were used without permission, just solely with the intent of infinite love for the cinema and endless respect for Mr. Scorsese and his team of collaborators." In love?
Was hoping to see something from Shine a Light. Shot at the Beacon Theater in NYC. Oh well. Still beautiful.

Interestingly, the external scenes in Gangs of New York were shot in Italy
