With all of his ex-wives to support, it stands to reason that director Martin Scorsese should be cranking 'em out at a rate to rival Preston Sturges' output in the early 40s, or Moe Green's proclivity with cocktail waitresses. If nothing else, doesn't Marty want to emulate the studio contract directors he so liberally "borrows" from? If Woody and Clint still average a feature a year, why can't Scorsese?

Marty heard the cries from His children and this year raises up two very different pictures to act as instruments of deliverance. This November we will truly have something to give thanks for when Marty's latest offering, a 3-D adaptation of the children's book Hugo Cabret (or Kidfellas as I like to call it), touches down on theatre screens.

In an interview given to the L.A. Times, Beatle-widow Olivia Harrison revealed that Marty's latest rockumentary, George Harrison: Living in the Material World (it's been in the works since 2007), will be released later this year. Two Martys in one year!!! Not since 2004 have we attested to both a video documentary and a theatrical release. The recession has officially ended.

Let's hope that this time San Diego will witness a theatrical release of one of Marty's documentaries. Yes, there was Shine a Light (in IMAX, no less), but who's kidding whom? Mick Jagger was the auteur behind that one. Marty was just a hired mamaluke to add prestige and marquee value. I made the pilgrimage to L.A. to see No Direction Home: Bob Dylan presented on the screen, and, as far as I'm concerned, the San Diego premiers of Il mio viaggio in Italia, Feel Like Going Home, and Lady by the Sea: The Statue of Liberty were all held in my living room.

This was before Reading Cinemas was a major player in town. I am sending out the call to JoEllen Brantferger, Reading's Regional Publicity Director and my personal Queen, to see to it that Marty's latest observance be given a proper canvas. If we have to make due with digital, so be it. Just this one time, see if you can't find a SuperPanavision 70 print (with a slight anamorphic squeeze) and mag stereo tracks just for me.
