Watch as Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director and sweding enthusiast Michel Gondry reshoots Scorsese’s gritty NYC thriller as a psychotically adorable short. Heads will explode… with paint driblets.
This is lo-fi, very rabid goodness sans all that kid rape stuff, plus ice cream and projectile rainbow-pigment vomiting. Oh, and there are some brief, mind-tickling surrealist mini-scenes with taxi cab mirrors and bathroom reflections, plus a true gem of a pan over bloody Bickle’s stand-off finale tribute, complete with a paper set masacre, tiny writhing plastic soldier stuntmen and more. I’ll say no more. Watch.
