Scorsese's first feature film is by all standards a remarkable debut. The movie starts out charming and playful, as we watch J.R. (Keitel) first meet the young woman who is never given a name (simply christened, the girl). Within the first 15 minutes it is apparant that Scorsese is a real talent in the making, with a unique, stylistically ambitious way of sharing his vision. Just as quickly he tip... read more

Who's That Knocking At My Door is primarily of historical interest, more an exercise in style - in this case a New York 60s spin on nouvelle vague and Italian neo-realism - than a work of substance. Expanded from a film school project, Scorsese's feature debut is typically light on plot, counterpointing Harvey Keitel's Mean Streets-lite time-wasting with the boys from the old neighbourhood with hi... read more

Martin Scorsese is regarded as one of the best directors ever and I think he definitely deserves this honor. He started his illustrious career with this flick which already more than 40 years ago. Honestly, even though I really enjoyed it, I don't think it is really a masterpiece, especially if you compare it to his numerous classics ('Raging Bull', 'Taxi driver', ''Goodfellas',...).

“Who's That Knocking At My Door is primarily of historical interest, more an exercise in style - in this case a New York 60s spin on nouvelle vague and Italian neo-realism - than a work of substance. Expanded from a film school project, Scorsese's feature debut is typically light on plot, counterpointing Harvey Keitel's Mean Streets-lite time-wasting with the boys from the old neighbourhood with his failed romance with Zina Bethune that offers the possibility something better. There's more energy than insight and the passage of time has dulled it's edge, but it's not without interest, especially in the way that at times Keitel seems to be playing Scorsese, never more so than in the scene where he picks up Bethune by talking about The Searchers after seeing a picture of the Duke in her copy ” read more

A Complete review of Martin Scorsese's work (30 movies items)

" Cast : Harvey Keitel What was it about? J.R. is a typical Italian-American on the streets of New York. When he gets involved with a local girl, he decides to get married and settle down, but when he learns that she was once raped, he cannot handle it. More explicitly linked with Catholic guilt that Scorsese's later work, we see what happens to J.R. when his religious guilt catches up with him. My two cents: Martin Scorsese started his illustrious career with this flick which was made alr"

" I have the highest respect for Martin Scorsese, tho not always some of his films. There are quiet a few film references made throughout the film. This coupled with the blending of several different types of montages and editing techniques... that felt distracting. In that I was more aware of the film then the actual story or what might be happening. As a film about film I think it works on a certain level but as a narrative story it got a little confusing. Ha! Of course many directors would "

" Watched February 25th - Xanadon't's DVD Collection - 1st Viewing "Everybody should like westerns, solve everybody’s problems if they liked westerns." - J.R. This was Martin Scorsese's first film, so I will make allowances for the low budget look of the movie and the camera work that was making me seasick. I found a lot of what was going on hard to follow, the exception being the relationship between J.R. and the girl, that I enjoyed, even if I ended up wanting to smack J.R. through a wal"

Morrissey's influences (120 movies items)

"A still of Harvey Keitel from this film was almost used for the artwork of the "Strangeways Here We Come" album. When he finally gave his approval it was too late so the image was used by Morrissey as a backdrop on the 1991 Kill Uncle tour. The same image also appeared on merchandise sold on that tour. "

A good movie

“Martin Scorsese is regarded as one of the best directors ever and I think he definitely deserves this honor. He started his illustrious career with this flick which already more than 40 years ago. Honestly, even though I really enjoyed it, I don't think it is really a masterpiece, especially if you compare it to his numerous classics ('Raging Bull', 'Taxi driver', ''Goodfellas',...). Eventually, I must admit I thought it was a little bit boring at times and it is pretty obvious that Scorsese was still learning. Still, you can already recognize his touch and the whole thing definitely had some mesmerizing qualities. To conclude, even though it is honestly nothing really mind-blowing, it remains an interesting directing debut and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you're interested” read more
