  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Written by: Melissa Mathison
  • Cast: Tenzin Thuthob Tsarong, Gyurme Tethong, Tulku Jamyang Kunga Tenzin

Scorsese's biography of the 14th Dalai Lama is also a painstaking record of a culture close to extinction. The beauty of Tibet and gentle nature of the people are disrupted by the invasion of China, but the Dalai Lama remains true to the ideal of non-violence. A highly cinematic, though heavily wrought film, Kundun also…

  • Written by: Wesley Strick
  • Cast: Robert De Niro, Nick Nolte, Jessica Lange, Juliette Lewis, Joe Don Baker, Robert Mitchum, Gregory Peck

Scorsese's stunning remake of the 1962 original leaves Silence of the Lambs pallid by comparison. De Niro is terrifying as white trash psycho Max Cady, out of prison and stalking the family of the lawyer who suppressed evidence to put him away. Disturbing sexual undertones, centred on 15-year-old Danny (Lewis), make this…

Liotta plays Henry Hill, a real-life mafioso, with De Niro as his mentor in crime.

The King of Comedy

  • 1983
  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Martin Scorsese
  • Cast: Robert De Niro, Sandra Bernhard, Jerry Lewis

Scorsese's 1983 comedy bombed; 80s audiences were repelled by writer Zimmerman's brutal tale about a fifth-rate comedian determined to be a star. With hindsight, it's a brilliant exploration of a culture where anyone can be famous; De Niro's Pupkin is wonderfully repellent, Bernhard hurls herself at the camera and Lewis's…
