Late Saturday afternoon I attended a 90-minute American Cinematheque chat between director Martin Scorsese and producer Irwin Winkler, who teamed on New York, New York (’77), Raging Bull (’80), Goodfellas (’90), The Wolf of Wall Street (’13) and the soon-to-be-released Silence. The moderator was Jim Hemphill (knew his stuff, kept the ball in the air). Towards the end the trio was joined by Silence costars Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver and Issei Ogata (“Izzy” to his American friends) along with producer Emma Tillinger Koskoff. Silence screens for journos and industry types tomorrow afternoon (Sunday, 12.4) at 3 pm.

Scorsese gets major points for wearing a pair of pricey-looking, probably Italian-made brown lace-ups instead of the orthopedic comfort shoes that guys in their mid 70s sometimes wear to premieres and whatnot.
Garfield footwear (stylish, pricey, well-made + dark gray Argyle socks, rolled-up cuffs).
