Martin Scorsese : « L’image sur un iPhone est le nouveau cinéma-vérité »


Martin Scorsese, the co-director of the cabaret concert documentary « Personality Crisis: One Night Only, » has expressed his dislike for the term « documentary. » He believes that the word is outmoded and that films should not be put into niches of fiction or nonfiction. Scorsese has made eight music documentaries and other nonfiction efforts, but he does not differentiate them from his fiction features. He wants to find a way to make films that slip in and out of each other and affect each other, regardless of whether they are narrative or nonfiction.

« Personality Crisis » features David Johansen, former New York Dolls frontman turned lounge act Buster Poindexter, playing a one-night cabaret show at the Cafe Carlyle in New York. Throughout the club performance, Scorsese and co-director David Tedeschi interweave stories of how the New York Dolls came to be as the founders of punk across decades of love, loss, drugging, and drinking. Scorsese sees « Personality Crisis » as a kind of musical companion to his Osage Nation murder saga « Killers of the Flower Moon. »

Scorsese’s thoughts on filmmaking are as of their time and ahead of their time as ever. He tries to find ways to get around the trap of A, B, and C in a narrative film and allow the audience to feel the story without telling them the story. He believes that music has always been the inspiration for a kind of provocation that forces people to think another way. « Personality Crisis » will be released at Cannes this May.
