Humorous new American Express TV ad featuring the "perfectionist" director himself. Click on "One Hour Photo" to see:

Humourous to the maximum capacity of laughter containment

He act real good.

I love finding his cameos in all of his movies.  After Hours is probably his funniest.

By far his best performance, i think, is the backseat fellow from Taxi Driver.

" 'say cheese', great direction, Marty..."

Hehehehhehe. That cracks me up every time. And then I double laugh when: "I've lost the narrative thread".

Ah, Scorsese. You are indeed the Greatest.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.
