Martin Scorsese’s influential, yet underseen 1983 film, The King Of Comedy, finally hit shelves on Blu-ray on March 25th. Starring Robert De Niro, The King Of Comedy is one of the most disturbing (yet wonderful) looks at our celebrity obsessed culture. This Blu-ray has been in the works for quite sometime, and as you can see from some screenshots, it was worth the wait.
Academy Award® Winner Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis and Sandra Bernhard give mesmerizing performances in this “chilling black comedy” (TV Guide’s Movie Guide) that explores the painfully high and often hilarious price of fame. Desperate to be a star, struggling stand-up comedian Rupert Pupkin (De Niro) enlists the aid of his fanatical friend Masha (Bernhard) to kidnap talk show host Jerry Langford (Lewis). The ransom? A guest spot for Pupkin. The results? Outrageous! The King of Comedy stands as Scorsese’s prophetic masterpiece which confronts a celebrity culture that “looks more disturbingly current with each passing year” (Lucia Bozzola, All Movie Guide).
