Movie Review by Jacob
March 15th, 2007

Personally I found The Aviator to be one of Scorsese's better films.
Martin Scorsese has become a great expert on films which investigate the human psychology especially it's flaws and the darker side of the brain that compels a person to seek revengs, I find this is very prominent in Scorsese movies like Goodfella's, Gangs of New York and Raging Bull. Scorsese takes great care in his analysis of the individual and The Aviator is a true tribute to Scorsese's way of filmmaking.

The Aviator tells the history of the notorious Howard Hughes following his success and failures and the dysfunction he experiences. His failed romances, romances including Audrey Hepburn played brilliantly by Cate Blanchet who came out of nowhere with her performance.

Many may feel The Aviator too draggy or long and I experienced this very little because I was so into the story being told, it was no longer about Howard Hughes' success that the world saw, and it wasn't even about his large failures and eccentric obessions...it was about this person who was different. There could be no doubt about the man's brilliance and yet there was this balance between his brilliance and this heart-wrenching illness of his.

My comments are all over the place but I hope some can take away what I am trying to say...It was a very well-crafted movie and I feel it was probably one of Leo DiCaprio's best performances showing his maturity and ability to raise the stakes as an actor, beyond that pretty-boy role he is known for. he has come a long way.
