-MOVIE OF THE WEEK- The King Of Comedy (1983)
Everybody has their favorite film by Martin Scorsese. From the 24 feature films that he has directed, there is that one movie that really speaks to them. Be it Taxi Driver (1976), Raging Bull (1980), Goodfellas (1990) or more recent works such as Aviator (2004) or Wolf of Wall Street (2013). For me however, it will be always the understated and overlooked classic that is King of Comedy. One of the career best performances from Robert De Niro in my opinion, this movie is both hilarious and tragically depressing at the same time, as it is a social commentary on public's obsession with celebrity culture in a Reagan Era.
