This the film that really nailed it for Scorcese and DeNiro. Jodi Foster is amazing, especially as she was just at the stage of her career when she was making the transition to more grown-up fare. There is also a sterling support cast including a brilliant "Peter Boyle" as the Wizard and Harvey Keitel in the part of the pimp which he had Scorcese build up for him. The score from an ailing Bernard Harman is among the best and most disquieting of his work (sadly his last score he died on the day the recording was completed). The dvd extras are the kind I really like, quality rather than quantity. I mean who needs an extra dvd of stuff most probably taken from the media hand-outs given to the press? What you have hear is a really good length (70 min) making of with all the main movers and shakers taking part; Scorcese, DeNiro, Shepherd, Keitel, Shraeder. The only thing I'm slightly dissapointed about is that there is no mention of the rumoured animosity between DeNiro and Shepherd. Hell, maybe they've put the past behind them.
