Filmmaker Tony Zhou, from Every Frame a Painting, published a new video essay today that examines Martin Scorsese's use of silence in his last 50 years of filmmaking. It's a real treat.

Here's the description, from Vimeo:

"Even though Martin Scorsese is famous for his use of music, one of his best traits is his deliberate and powerful use of silence. Take a glimpse at fifty years of this simple technique from one of cinema's masters. For educational purposes only."

Uh-oh. Should we all have become filmmakers, instead of whatever we are currently? I'd kind of like to be a director now! It seems great!
