Martin Scorsese / US, DE, 2004 / 170 min.
A visually overwhelming biopic of Howard Hughes (Leonardo DiCaprio), the tragic Hollywood producer, aviator and womaniser. Scorsese portrays the man who spent the family fortune on his two great passions: film and flying, as a tragic Icarus figure who flew too close to the sun. Scorsese’s mastery shows itself in the styling and in the gripping action scenes.
In the summer of 2017, Eye staged an exhibition devoted to one of the most important American film directors of the past half-century: Martin Scorsese. Over the years, the director of such classics as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and The Wolf of Wall Street has elaborated a uniquely personal style of filmmaking.
