Gangs of New York
Amazon Prime Video has a classic from Martin Scorsese. This film marks the first collaboration of the genius director with a young Leonardo Di Caprio. In this re-enactment of mid-19th century New York, gangs rule over what will become of the Big Apple. At their head, a ruthless leader led by the impeccable Daniel Day-Lewis. An epic butcher’s shop to see and re-watch just for its fight scenes.
Before Taxi Driver, before Goodfellas, before The Irish Man, before Casino, before Raging Bull, there was Mean Streets. A young director behind the camera, Martin Scorsese, and two film monsters to become in front of her: Robert de Niro and Harvey Keitel. Nothing more than the origins of the Scorsese mafia saga.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
When Ben Stiller abandons the comedy register, it results in a film that is deeply moving, exotic, poetic, a real breath of fresh air. And in this period of a health crisis, we are not going to spit on this joyous journey into the unknown.
