Martin Scorsese has asked Letterboxd to “raise the score” of 1982 film ‘THE KING OF COMEDY’

Martin Scorsese has asked Letterboxd to “raise the score” of 1982 film ‘THE KING OF COMEDY’.

“I saw my film had 4.2 stars, when it should have all 5. It reminds me of Entertainment Tonight calling it the flop of the year in their 1983 New Year’s Eve show.”

Martin Scorsese has officially joined the movie ranking and review site Letterboxd. To celebrate his arrival on the app, the director has even created a list of companion films to many of his most legendary movies.

Scorsese, whose Killers of the Flower Moon just released this past week, joined the app this week and has already begun logging films that he’s seen, including 1960’s Wild River, 1948’s Blood on the Moon, and 1949’s The Heiress.

While Scorsese doesn’t have his four favorite films listed (you can see a much bigger list of his all-timers here), he’s recently watched Western films like Red River, Blood on the Moon and Wild River.

We’ll see how often Scorsese updates his Letterboxd in the weeks and months to come, and if he adds any reviews to his diary logs.

“I love the idea of putting different films together into one program,” wrote Scorsese in a caption on the list. “I grew up seeing double features, programs in repertory houses, evenings of avant-garde films in storefront theatres. You always learn something, see something in a new light, because every movie is in conversation with every other movie. The greater the difference between the pictures, the better.”

Many films, like Killers of the Flower Moon and The Irishman, have a handful of companion films listed. Each also has its own written description as to why Scorsese considers the film to pair well with his own.

The list totals 59 films in all, so if you’re looking for some classics to brush up on, or diving fully into Scorsese’s backlog, this list is a must read.

It’s a fascinating twist for the towering auteur, whose new film Killers of the Flower Moon is playing in theaters nationwide. If you’ve longed to open up your Letterboxd account and see what movies Scorsese has been watching, now is your chance.

This is like opening up a wonderful present on Christmas morning if you’re a Scorsese fan or just an appreciator of really good movies in general.
