Director Martin Scorsese discusses ‘The Red Shoes’

Director Martin Scorsese has often extolled the virtues of one of his favorite films, The Red Shoes. Last month, Martin Scorsese, 67, took time out from editing a documentary on British cinema and inspecting some colour film stock – ‘Yep, a typical Saturday’ – to talk about his love for ‘The Red Shoes’. A romantic fantasy about a doomed ballerina, the 1948 film, directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, has been restored with the help of Scorsese, whose own ‘Shutter Island’ is due for a release in February. ‘The Red Shoes’ enjoys an extended run at BFI Southbank throughout this month. Here’s what Scorsese had to say.
