"The Age of Innocence" is one of Scorsese's greatest films, improperly appreciated because, like "Kundun" (1997), it stands outside the main line of his work. Its story of a man of tradition who spends a lifetime of unrequited love resembles one of Scorsese's favorite films, Michael Powell's "The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp."So says Roger Ebert in his latest Great Movies column, this time highlighting Martin Scorsese's The Age of Innocence [Amazon | IMDb], the fifth Scorsese film to be featured (after Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and Goodfellas).
