The Scorsese exhibition at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) highlights Martin Scorsese as one of the world’s greatest directors. Famous films such as Taxi Driver and Goodfellas capture Scorsese’s love of ‘anti-heroes’, spiralling out of control and into self-destruction. The space is dark and mysterious with flashes of red and white text and imagery adorning the walls. 

The colour palette is an indicator of things to come; Martin Scorsese is well known for violence in his films. The exhibition draws clips, costumes and artefacts from his personal collection. The exhibition also looks at his creative processes demonstrating just how his films were put together. A stand out is the fight scene storyboards and shot-by-shot breakdowns of the 1980 boxing classic Raging Bull. The viewer can fully comprehend and appreciate how much effort and technical precision goes into every scene. Robert De Niro features heavily in the exhibition, being one of Scorsese’s key collaborators.

This exhibition gives a unparalleled insight into the mind of one of cinema’s greatest directors. You can catch it until the 18th of September.
