Scorsese on the movie business, Fellini and English films

Scorsese’s essay is excellent. He points out what is lost when film is reduced to “content”. The essay focuses on Fellini. There’s a great new box set of most of his films from the Criterion Collection. I have also included this link to an IndieWire article on Scorsese’s favorite English films. It’s a fine list but doesn’t include the Ealing comedies such as Kind Hearts and Coronets and The Man in the White Suit. It does have Hammer horror films. Maybe he assumed the recipients had seen them since they are better known than most of the films on the list.
