TIME’s Richard Schickel has just published Conversations with Scorsese. ¬†Slate mag asked Schickel to choose¬†”five sequences from the director’s vast body of work that are not only personal favorites of his, but also have particular significance in the director’s development as, perhaps, the nation’s leading film author.” ¬†The ones they chose are pretty good. ¬†I think mine would go a little differently. ¬†Although, I must confess, choosing five is mostly impossible.
In addition to the five Schickel chose, I’d like to offer up five of my own but instead trying to find the best, I think I’ll maybe stick with the most underrated – those scenes that maybe people don’t really know about (which is what Schickel did). ¬†After the cut.
