DE NIRO/SCORSESE – THE KINGS OF CINEMA
By Anton Ilinski on October 1, 2005
Format: DVD

That’s what happens when a movie is being made by true masters. De Niro and Scorsese created many films together and it seems everything they lay their hands on turns to gold – whether it’s a gangster flick or a comedy. There are practically no jokes in “The King of Comedy” (except the ones De Niro and Jerry Lewis let off during their stand-up acts, but that’s a comedy within a comedy) but this film is just killing. It pretends to be very serious but this seriousness is also hilarious. That’s a real skill to make a no-nonsense movie everybody will be laughing madly about. To my opinion this is one of the best works of Robert De Niro (I know – he had many, but this one really deserves to be called so), Jerry Lewis
– I can’t describe how great he is here, and Sandra Bernhard is also outstanding.
“The King of Comedy” is a less known film of Martin Scorsese and I can’t find an explanation why. But the fact it’s not that known as his other works doesn’t diminish its value. Grab this flick as soon as possible – it’s one of the best  tragicomedies ever put on celluloid.
