MARTIN SCORSESE DOUBLE FEATURE
November 10, 2019  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
One of TCM’s most supportive and artistic supporters and occasional contributors, Martin Scorsese, usually writes or talks about other films when inside the TCM tent. And this month, TCM shows why it’s so fortunate to have him, by showing occasional double features of his influential, memorable movies. First up are samples from his earliest days of filmmaking: At 8 p.m. ET, 1974’s Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, starring Ellen Burstyn, Kris Kristofferson and Diane Ladd – a sweet character study that somehow was adapted into the more saccharine TV sitcom Alice, starring Linda Lavin, Polly Holliday and, eventually, Diane Ladd. Then, at 10 p.m. ET, it’s an even earlier film, the one that made Scorsese a new cinematic force: 1973’s Mean Streets, starring a couple young actors who would work with Scorsese again over the years: Robert De Niro and Harvey Keitel (pictured).
