Wanna see an early film by Scorsese? Here comes The Big Shave

This is just way too cool NOT to post.  The film below is a bad YouTube compression of a poorly captured video of a forty-year-old film print.  It still holds up.

I love seeing prolific directors’ early works.  Scorsese is, in my opinion, a filmic genius who is steeped in everything cinema.  He’s one of those rare directors who can talk about films as intelligently as he makes them, and that’s why it is so compelling for me to see one of his earliest and most simple works.
