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

" What was it about? A writer named Algernon (but called Harry by his friends) buys a picture of a boat on a lake, and his obsession with it renders normal life impossible. He attempts to function again by consulting an analyst and becoming married, but eventually succumbs to his strange anxiety by disappearing into the picture. My two cents: Once again, I came across this short on an amazing list here on listal. Scorsese made this when he was still a student at New York University's"

“What's a Nice Girl Like You Doing in a Place Like This? is a 1963 short film that Martin Scorsese created while a student at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. It is a comedic piece about a writer who becomes obsessed with a picture he has on his wall. It's obvious even at this point that Marty is special. What stands out the most here for me is his grip on the use of voice-over narration. Which remains one of his strongest qualities today.
