KEY TO RESERVA
Surfing around the net tonight I found this amazing homage to Alfred Hitchcock made by Martin Scorsese (and paid for by the champagne Freixenet).
Shot by Harris Savides, with additional lensing by Ellen Kuras, and cut by Thelma Schoonmaker, Scorsese tells a “documentarian” that he plans to shoot pages of a lost script he found titled Key To Reserva the way Hitchcock would have.
“To preserve a film that has not been made,” he says.
Using the familiar music of Bernard Herrmann, Scorsese casts Simon Baker to play the debonair lead and classic sequences from many of Hitchcock’s films appear (I caught about four in a span of ten seconds). For any Hitchcock fan it’s a real treat.
