Annette Insdorf will moderate a January 23, 7:30 p.m. 92NY Reel Pieces conversation with the legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese, including clips from his acclaimed new movie, Killers of the Flower Moon. (In-person and online tickets are available on 92NY’s website.)
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio (Best Actor nominee from the Critics Choice Awards), Lily Gladstone (winner of the Best Actress prize from the NY Film Critics Circle, National Board of Review as well as the Golden Globes), Robert De Niro (Best Supporting Actor nominee from the Critics Choice Awards and Screen Actors Guild Awards), this epic is based on crimes of the 1920s that resonate today. The script co-written by Scorsese and Eric Roth – based on the nonfiction book by David Grann – dramatizes a conspiracy to steal land and money from the Osage people through murder and inheritance.
Martin Scorsese has made some of the most memorable films of the past fifty years. Beginning with Mean Streets and Taxi Driver, his New York City became a vibrant cinematic turf that continued with Raging Bull, Goodfellas, The Age of Innocence and Gangs of New York. Beyond his urban chronicles, he made such celebrated movies as Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, Kundun, The Aviator, The Departed, Hugo, The Wolf of Wall Street, Silence and The Irishman.
Killers of the Flower Moon can be seen in its entirety (206 minutes) on Apple TV+ with a subscription, or on Prime Video for $19.99.
