This is random and awesome: Martin Scorsese has agreed to be the subject of Lars von Trier's sequel to The Five Obstructions, the 2003 documentary in which von Trier challenged Danish director Jorgen Leth to remake his short film The Perfect Human in five different ways (anime, shoot in Bombay slum, etc.). So basically, von Trier gets to make Scorsese do whatever the hell he wants (this kind of bothered Leth). There's no word on what will actually be getting remade, but the Hollywood Reporter speculates it'll be an early Scorsese short, or — even better — a famous scene from one of his features. Okay, how about that bit in Goodfellas when Ray Liotta pistol-whips that guy who's bothering Lorraine Bracco? [HR]
