Martin Scorsese More of a Vampire Guy

Martin Scorsese: 'Silence' lawsuit

Where does Martin Scorsese stand on the enduring cultural clash between vampires and zombies? Where else? "I happen to like vampires more than zombies. A vampire, quite honestly, you could have a conversation with. He has a sexuality. [...] I mean the undead thing... Zombies, what are you going to do with them? Just keep chopping them up, shooting at them, shooting at them. It's a whole other thing that apparently means a great deal to our culture and our society. There are many, many books written about it and many movies. I saw one in London when I was doing Hugo. I saw one late at night one weekend. It was called Colin, by a young filmmaker [Marc Price]. He shot it, I think, digitally by himself, edited it himself. It was savage. It had an energy that took the zombie idea to another level. Really interesting filmmaking. Disturbing." Also: He gets Raging Bull II just about as much as you and I do. [GQ via /film]

    Scorcese is an elegant courtier -- and what are vampires? Werewolves, I think we can all understand -- there's brawn there, and terror, even if you're one of a pack; but how it is it zombies are actually in the equation, with them like sludge, indistinguishable parts of a mass? Maybe it's that when there's enough of them popping up -- non-plussed, no tower of aristocracy or town of lupine beastiality is going to stand in their way.

    I抦 amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that抯 equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

    The next time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to read, however I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix should you werent too busy looking for attention.
