I've been waiting a while for this. Being an adamant fan of Martin Scorsese's work, I've surprisingly never seen most of the films included in this collection. In fact, I've only seen GOODFELLAS (one of my all-time favorite motion pictures).
The rest of the films included here have been "must-sees" on my list for some time but I could never find them on DVD! The MEAN STREET DVDs went out of print and reportedly some of the others as well. Luckily, they're now all here, in one collection, perfect for the die-hard Scorsese fans out there!
I already own the "flipper" snap case version of GOODFELLAS with the poor transfer and sound quality, so I can't wait for the Special Edition. Here's a full list of the DVDs and special features:
DVD Features: Contains Five Martin Scorsese Films all with director commentary:
After Hours
Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore
Goodfellas: Two-Disc Special Edition
Mean Streets: Special Edition
Who's That Knocking At My Door?
Widescreen anamorphic format
Number of discs: 5
This looks to be an extraordinary gift set, perfect for fans of Scorsese. There is, however, one slight downside: This collection doesn't feature the out-of-print RAGING BULL. It also doesn't feature some of Scorsese's other great films such as THE KING OF COMEDY, CASINO, etc. Surely a ten-set DVD at double the price would have been acceptable - after all, this set IS for the real Martin Scorsese fans out there, and I'm sure they wouldn't mind paying $70 - $80 for some of the greatest films ever made!
Or at least they should have just included RAGING BULL...It's available on Special Edition Region 2 but not Region 1. I'm very disappointed because the film is a classic and it's a shame the DVD hasn't been re-released yet.
But let's not complain. I'm just glad it's being released - I, for one, will rush to the stores to buy it the day it comes out.

So the rain falls in a Kurosawa film. And the colours drop from 'The Red Shoes', so the bullits, the sounds, the images blow into the face from Scorsese's work on screen! Did you ever notice that at the beginning of many of Scorsese's films the protagonist experiences a serious confrontation between his behaviour and sense of motivation? Wham! De Nero is blown into the air in Casino! Wham ,wham, wham! Ray Liotta's character - in Good Fellas - experiences a serious moment of doubt. When he oversees the situation that he is involved in. This is the moment: glowing in the red light of his - and former R.W. Fassbinder cinematographer Ballhaus' - carbacklights and surrounded by the De Nero character's bullits, he smashes the car backdoor and Scorse freezes that frame. That is the moment. A cinematographic question mark. Raging Bull: same thing: punch! The Last Waltz: blown into the air, by energy: sounds, images. 'How did things get to be?' The explosion expresses the innerstrength with which the character is confronted. The clash between pretentions and reality. The big bang triggers going back in time: Raging Bull, The Last Waltz, Good Fellas, Casino.... 'How did things get to be like this?' A serious question. A serious task. A matter of life and death.
Scorsese's narration on 'Gangs of New York' and 'The last Waltz' and his on-screen interview on the 'Feel like going home' dvd, provide clear guidelines from the maker in the experience of his works. It high-lights certain details. Is a guide into a better understanding of the 'how it got to be' of his work. A wonderfull filmschool. Sometimes I put the commentary tracks alone on an MP3 or MD player and listen to it when traveling. To hear the director put his work in his own words. And that is essential.

Well, this is obviously not a complete collection of Scorsese. But still, the price is right, 5 films, 6 discs, and such a cheap price. Plus, it includes the LONG TIME waited GOODFELLAS Special Two Disc Edition, my second Scorsese favorite. Plus, Mean Streets Special Edition, and the rest, all great, magnificent films, After Hours, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore and Who's that Knocking?. A great Deal.
However, it is regretable that it is missing someother films from Scorsese, now I don't mind it not having Casino, Taxi Driver, Age of Innocense and Gangs of New York, since I already own them. But what about Cape Fear, Kundun, Bringing Out the Dead, The King of Comedy, The Last Temptation of Christ, and my biggest regret, Raging Bull.
Now, the GoodFellas Special Edition is encouraging, that maybe, we will see the same treatment given to my favorite movie of all time, Raging Bull, that by the way, it is out of print.
However, this Collection is perfect, because it offers great Scorsese, at a very good price, let's hope each box comes with a hard plastic box, instead of the typical Warner Slip Case, and that specially GoodFellas has a great DVD.
By the way, Amazon lists it as a 5 disc Collection, it is actually 6 discs, GoodFellas, as I understand is the Special Two Disc Edition. I hope right.
