Scorsese on Dylan, Netflix and beating back the blockbuster

A recent multiplex marquee is haunting Martin Scorsese. Twelve screens and 11 of them were showing one movie: "Avengers: Endgame." "Now, that's not fair," Scorsese says. "We have to fight back at this practice of overwhelming the market with the blockbuster. The — how should I put it? — the regular film, that's being edged out. It's got to go someplace. It has to go someplace because you know why? There are people that are going to continue to make them." Scorsese, 76, is still making them, though there's little "regular" about his latest film. "Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story By Martin Scorsese" is a blistering semi-fictional documentary that chronicles Dylan's mythic 1975-1976 rambling cavalcade across a post-Vietnam America.
