Product Description

Amazon.ca

Martin Scorsese took a daring turn from the mean streets that made his reputation in the early 70s with New York, New York, his homage to the big-band era. And what a homage it is: the dazzling production design by Boris Leven continues to impress over the film's nearly three-hour length. And there's no denying the anthemic appeal of Kander and Ebb's title song, belted with winning bravado by costar Liza Minnelli in a show-stopping finale. But as valiantly as Minnelli and Robert De Niro try, they can't elevate the shaky plot beyond its two-dimensional construct. It purports to be a Star Is Born-like tragedy of colliding careers but too often it feels like inadvertently eavesdropping on a marriage counsellor's most truculent clients. (There are times you want someone--anyone--to slap Minnelli upside the head with a copy of Women WhoLove Too Much.) The film is for diehard Minnelli (or Scorsese) fans only. --Anne Hurley

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music but not so deep emotions March 14 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Liza Minelli is great in this film that is a manifesto for New York jazz and Broadway musicals. She has a deep and mysterious voice and her songs are highly poetic. Robert de Niro is an aggressive lover and a very self-centered musician, music-doubled by Auld. In fact he looks like a remake of Fred Astaire in his courting techniques, but without the light humorous dimension of Fred and with a deeply egotistic and melo-dramatic dimension. But the film goes beyond this and shows how two artists could work together if they accepted to step beyond the small difficulties of life. Small is a way of speaking since it is a pregnancy that does not come at the right moment, breaking up a band and endangering a career. Robert de Niro just rejects the problem and saves his own career by dumping the wife he had had so much difficulty to conquer. Liza Minelli recaptures her own career after this event with her talent and also with her easy-going friendliness. The film becomes sad and has no Happy Ending because the two hesitate to recapture the past and meet again for reasons that are not really made explicit in the film, but that we can imagine to be the fear to go back to a cannibalistic relation on the side of Liza Minelli and the fear to get penned up into limitations on the side of Robert de Niro, in spite of the attraction his own son exerts on him. This shows how difficult it is for two great artists to live together and to work together, especially when one is tyrannical and the other diplomatic. Napoleon meets Queen Victoria in some way. But the film is too much centered on the music and not explicit enough on the love affair and sentimental experience if not experiment the two go through. It makes it a litle bit cold and unsensitive. We have to imagine too much about the relations between the two. So it makes the film slightly shallow and slow, in a word long.

4.0 out of 5 stars flawed but fascinating July 24 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Godard maintains that this was Scorsese's greatest film--an outrageous claim but one that I can somewhat sympathize with. It is ironic that Scorsese's reputation is as a sort of gritty realist; in fact, his real subject has always been the slightly warped dream world of profoundly alienated individuals and the real mean streets his characters walk are not in New York but in a half-remembered, half-hallucinated Hollywood of the 40's and 50's. His often--perhaps too often-- repeated gesture is to place his lonely dreamers in collision with "reality" and to show it to be everybit as slippery as fantasy and just as inescapable. In this strange musical he seems to build a whole world out of bits of pop culture memories, cliches, and Hollywood images. This seems to be what attracted him to Liza Minnelli (There are several allusions and echoes of Vincent Minnelli here and Scorsese was one of the younger directors the old man most admired) and this interest on Scorsese's part works to the actress's disadvantage: while her famous parentage clearly resonates with the era and style Scorsese is exploring, her role is grossly underwritten and the director gives her little help, though she livens up considerably in some of her scenes with DeNiro. In fact the scene with the famous theme song came about when Scorsese saw Minnelli working in Vegas--which points up the extent to which he was more interested in the real Liza Minnelli than the character she was supposed to be creating.

3.0 out of 5 stars A movie definatley worth your time to watch.. Aug. 3 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Before I saw New York New York, I never knew anything about it! Maybe it's because I am only a teenage girl, or maybe because I am not a huge Martin Scorsese fan.. But I never really knew about it.. and I knew my parents had saw it.. But I never really asked them what was it about.. And one night I was watching t.v. and it was on! So I decided to watch it.. and I really did like the beginning.. just watch and see.. Liza Minnelli is a beautiful actress and her voice is even more beautiful.. and Robert De Niro is a very talanted man.. But I wanted to kill his character! lol.. (just watch and see) I did enjoy this movie.. but then I began to lose intrest.. possibly because the beginning was exciting.. that some how i expected more.. But the acting is excellent.. and Martin Scorsese's directing was also great.. I think if I might of had a greater intrest to watch it.. I might of enjoyed it more.. But this movie is worth your time.. and possibly you may have full intrest through out this movie.. it doesn't hurt to relax, get confy, and watch it

Scorsese was much too ambitious for the making of such a contrasting movie. By attempting to bring all things to all viewers, Scorsese fails to score a real hit. Read more
