Never mind Carmen Sandiego. Not Now John is fascinated with Martin Scorsese. And for good reason. After all, Scorsese is one of the greatest American directors of all time, with epics like Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and Goodfellas. We’ll lead with those three, then come in with the right-left-right of Cape Fear, Casino, and The Departed. The upcoming Sinatra should deliver the knock out punch.
Not Now John is a web-series that pays a heartfelt tribute to the past and present masters of cinema while touching on the perils in the movie industry.
The series was inspired by A Letter to Marty (Scorsese). Here’s the setup: “Every autograph has a story. Actor John Grimm (Joey Sinko) must make the decision of choosing to attend his own movie premiere or meet his beloved cinematic hero.”
Now more than ever we need to talk to each other, to listen to each other and understand how we see the world, and cinema is the best medium for doing this.
