Scorsese at the Cinémathèque de Paris

I've never been an unconditional Scorsese-fan, and this afternoon it became embarrassingly obvious why : Though familiar with his recent films, I don't remember ever having seen 'Mean Streets', 'Raging Bull', 'Taxi Driver' or even 'Cape Fear'
I have, however and unfortunately, seen 'After Hours', 'The Colour of Money' and 'The Aviator'...

Most of his films were present at the exhibition, much to its credit, though some definitely more present than others...

In all, I found this interesting, instructive and not overly technical.
The exhibition focuses on film extracts, rather than on props and script pages (though these are present too, down to the Scorsese family table...), classified thematically round the recurrent motifs of his work; New York, brotherhood, sin, atonement, redemption...

Exhaustive and engaging.
