Regarded as one of the most influential filmmakers working today, Martin Scorsese makes landmark movies that other filmmakers look to with reverence. His broad range of subjects – a boxer, an office worker, musicians on a stage – is featured this month at the Virginia. 

 

May 22-23  Raging Bull (1980) 
Rated R (129 min) 

An emotionally self-destructive boxer’s journey through life, as the violence and temper that leads him to the top in the ring destroys his life outside it.  Starring: Robert Di Nero, Cathy Moriarty & Joe Pesci.
 May 24-25  After Hours (1985)
Rated R (97 min)
“After Hours” approaches the notion of pure filmmaking; it’s a nearly flawless example of — itself. It lacks, as nearly as I can determine, a lesson or message, and is content to show the hero facing a series of interlocking challenges to his safety and sanity. It is “The Perils of Pauline” told boldly and well.

May 26  The Last Waltz (1978)
Rated PG (117 min)

(117min) Martin Scorsese chronicles the most legendary night in rock history, as an unparalleled lineup of rock superstars — including Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Van Morrison — take the stage for “The Band’s” 1976 farewell concert.
