That said, now that I've seen the SCORSESE Exhibition exclusive to Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), it appears I've got a whole lot more Scorsese movies to check out. The exhibition celebrates one of the most influential directors of our time; Martin Scorsese.

Scorsese's purpose in life was, and still is, to direct movies, demonstrated in his early childhood sketches, on display in ACMI's exclusive SCORSESE Exhibition. As a young boy, Scorsese spent much of his New York childhood at home or in his local cinema. His dream was to make films that honoured Hollywood yet retained much of the European traditions he grew up with.

In the SCORSESE Exhibition, you are given the opportunity to scour through 600 items of Scorsese's memorabilia, most of it sourced from his own private collection. Glimpse into the life of Scorsese's inspirational career, starting from his childhood and early family life. Enjoy movie snippets, behind-the-scenes photography shots of famed feature films, costumes, sketches, film scripts, storyboards and more.
