God's Lonely Man

27 years too late, but Martin Scorsese finally cops an Oscar for best director and best picture, and Thelma Schoonmaker for best editor.

When I clicked on the IMDB page for Scorsese’s next project, I thought jokingly, “Of course! He’ll get Leonardo DiCaprio to star as the title subject“.


Once again, Muggeridge’s Law comes through, and I’m sure the actual picture will be a hoot.

Incidentally, the choice of a director’s alter ego speaks volumes: Hitchcock had Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart. Scorsese has Leonardo DiCaprio, and seems as wedded to him these days as he was to Robert De Niro in both men’s glory days.
