New York, New York Reviews

June 24, 2011
Ultimately a very personal film about how Scorsese views a genre of film and, as such, has a much more coherent vision than its reputation would suggest. [Blu-ray]

A stagebound valentine, but one vigorously constructed down to the last detail, with Scorsese reveling in the costumes and music. It's an itch that spreads into a full-body rash in the final act.

A downbeat homage to bright-lights showbiz dramas, an epic orchestration that indulges in stubbornly obsessive riffs, Martin Scorsese's New York, New York (1977) seems to value awkwardness and indecision above all else.

Embora interessante, a direo de arte acaba se tornando uma distrao e os nmeros musicais so, em sua maioria, frouxos. Por outro lado, De Niro e Minnelli criam personagens complexos que despertam a curiosidade do espectador. Um Scorsese menor.

A visually fascinating rumination on the genre.

In a final burst from Old Hollywood, Minnelli tears into the title song and it's a wowser.

It's the exact kind of craziness that could only have been made in the waning days of the 1970s.

There are some things about it that rub me the right way: it has style, fire in its belly, great visuals and was ahead of its time.

Scorsese's tribute/parody/critique of the MGM musical is a razor-sharp dissection of the conventions of both meeting-cute romances and rags-to-riches biopics.

Martin Scorsese's criminally neglected tribute to the heyday of the MGM musical has aged astonishingly well.

From a story perspective, nothing happens in the film's 'last act,' but from an emotional perspective, everything happens. Minnelli's performance leaves its peak and soars.

Scorsese's take on classic musicals is just as odd and arresting as you'd think.

Martin Scorsese's New York, New York never pulls itself together into a coherent whole, but if we forgive the movie its confusions we're left with a good time.

One of the best of all movie musicals, and one of the best of all Scorsese. Extraordinary.

Scorsese's uneven mix of drama and music seems a bit self-indulgent. De Niro's character is totally unsympathetic.
