MARTIN SCORSESE TELLS RICKSTER WHAT TO WATCH

AN INTERESTING ADJUNCT TO THE "MOVIES RICKSTER HASN'T SEEN" POST BELOW. 

While not actually a personal friend of mine, Martin Scorsese is of course a patron saint of this blog:  we are a member of the Holistic Order of St. Martin of Scorsese.  In a four hour interview with Rick Tetzeli for a recent issue of "Fast Company", the Oscar-winning director and avowed film nut gave an informal list of "85 Films You Need To See To Know Anything About Film".  So in addition to my friends and neighbours who read this blog and have already made film recommendations (per my request in the post below), I thought I'd pretend ole Marty has responded as well and is talking to me when he recommends the following films (those which I've already seen are in red):
