Four movies from the man widely regarded as the greatest American filmmaker of his generation are collected on this special DVD box set. The Martin Scorsese Film Collection features DVD editions of Raging Bull, Scorsese's powerful examination of human violence as personified by fighter Jake La Motta (Robert De Niro); New York, New York, an ambitious "dramatic musical" starring Robert De Niro and Liza Minnelli; The Last Waltz, Scorsese's celebrated documentary about the final concert of the rock group the Band; and one of the director's earliest features, Boxcar Bertha. Except for Boxcar Bertha, all the DVD's in this collection include commentary tracks from Scorsese and his collaborators, as well as bonus materials.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This box set is a testament to Martin Scorsese's diverse talents, gathering together four movies that vary widely in content and execution. Boxcar Bertha (1972), Scorsese’s first studio-made film, is a Depression-era Bonnie and Clyde rip-off in which small-town girl Barbara Hershey falls in with charismatic train robber David Carradine. New York, New York (1977), another period piece, was the director’s homage to such sprawling musical epics as Alexander’s Ragtime Band; it detailed the turbulent relationship of a passionate saxophone player (Robert De Niro) and a star vocalist (Liza Minnelli) throughout the big-band era. A box-office flop in ’77, this exceptionally well made movie cries out for reappraisal, and we predict it will seem a lot better today than it did then. Shifting gears from pop music’s past to the more recent, The Last Waltz (1978) is perhaps the most dynamic concert film ever made, and a quarter century of music videos hasn’t diminished it at all. Filmed at the Band’s 1976 farewell concert, it features exhilarating performances by such rock luminaries as Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton, the Staples, Muddy Waters, and, of course, Robbie Robertson and the Band. The diamond here, though, is Raging Bull (1980), still regarded by many as Scorsese’s masterpiece. A vividly realized, if not particularly complimentary, portrait of prizefighter Jake LaMotta, it won an Oscar for the top-billed De Niro, here paired with Joe Pesci (playing the fighter’s brother) in the first of several Scorsese projects. There are more memorable scenes and lines of dialogue than we could possibly enumerate, and the raw energy unleashed by star and director still crackles through the screen. It’s the highlight here, yet thoroughly enhanced -- for serious Scorsese fans -- by the presence of the other three films.

Martin Scorsese Film Collection 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

Scorsese's film is about the people of cinema and theatre who are the labellers of people and either do them in or make them big. It is a must see and used as a textbook in some quarters, such as film schools........

This boxed set gives us three of Martin Scorsese's lesser known movies along with his best film. "Boxcar Bertha" isn't necessarily a good movie, but it shows the budding talent of a younger Scorsese. "New York, New York" is his grossly underrated muscial, and "The Last Waltz" is his great rock documentary. Yet, this set is worth it just for the special edition of "Raging Bull", a film that is so emotionally involving that it's hard to watch at some points. Scorsese is a true genius in the art of film, and I hope he's around for years to come to show people how to make a movie.
