First Impression: Martin Scorsese's 'Hugo'
The director's work-in-progress plays for a New York Film Festival audience. But how will it factor in the awards race?
For me, Martin Scorsese's Hugo is not what it appeared to be in its trailer.
Yes, it's a movie starring kids... but it's really not for them. If anyone, it's for (and about) Scorsese, the great film lover, historian, and preservationist. At it's core, it is the most expensive and creative Film History 101 course of all time.
I'm not sure who from the public is going to enroll, and I think that most in the Academy have already passed it... but the professor is to be admired for offering it nonetheless.
