The end of 2020 promises to be gloomy for fans of American blockbusters. After the postponements of To die can wait, Dune and other Black widow, cinemas find it difficult to convince viewers to return to theaters. What if the retrospective exercise was the solution? The Grand Rex has in any case bet on it.

The famous Parisian cinema, which had lowered the curtain from August 3 to 26 for lack of audiences and films, is offering for the beginning of October a retrospective of the films of director Martin Scorsese. On the program, eleven films by the Oscar-winning filmmaker will be screened from October 7 to 13. Taxi Driver (1976), Raging Bull (1980), The Freedmen (1990), Nerves raw (1991), Casino (1995), Gangs of New York (2002), Aviator (2004), Infiltrators (2006), Shutter island (2010), Hugo cabret (2011) and finally The wolf of Wall Street (2013) will be projected on one of the largest screens in Europe in the original version with French subtitles.

For 6 euros per film, the spectator will be able to see this selection of the best of Martin Scorsese’s filmography, which nonetheless brings together nearly thirteen awards, including two Oscars, three Golden Globes and a Palme d’Or. Reservations are open on the official Grand Rex website for all screenings.

Martin Scorsese is currently working on his future feature film Killers of the Flower Moon, the adaptation of David Grann’s book and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. The film is slated to hit theaters in 2021, for now, and is produced by Apple. This collaboration is not insignificant since the director and his company Sikelia Productions have signed a multi-year agreement for film and television projects with Apple TV +. New masterpieces are coming.
