Dryden celebrates the films of DeNiro and Scorsese
The Dryden Theatre shines a spotlight on the filmmaking relationship between powerhouse actor Robert DeNiro and celebrated director Martin Scorsese, with a film series in January and February titled Eight Portraits of the Obsessive:Â The films of Robert DeNiro and Martin Scorsese.
â€œMany fans would consider DeNiro to be Scorseseâ€™s most important collaborator, having made eight movies together - all of which focus attention on obsessed characters who vainly try to adjust the world to their vision of how it should be, no matter what destruction it brings,â€ said Jim Healy, assistant curator of motion pictures for George Eastman House.
