The King of Comedy


Featuring Robert De Niro

Dir. Martin Scorsese. 1982, 109 mins. 35mm. With Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis, Sandra Bernhard. In Scorsese’s trenchant satire about fandom and the pursuit of fame, De Niro is astonishing as Rupert Pupkin, a delusional aspiring comic who enlists an overzealous fan in his deranged scheme to kidnap a talk-show host.
