Quote:
HBO has announced via Twitter that Martin Scorsese will be doing a documentary on William Jefferson Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States. The doc will cover the former president's dual terms in office and his work in politics after. This will be the second HBO documentary that Scorsese has done. The first being GEORGE HARRISON: LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD which was released in October of last year.

This is what Scorsese had to say about the project, "A towering figure who remains a major voice in world issues, President Clinton continues to shape the political dialogue both here and around the world. Through intimate conversations, I hope to provide greater insight into this transcendent figure."

Clinton also chimed in, "I am pleased that legendary director Martin Scorsese and HBO have agreed to do this film. I look forward to sharing my perspective on my years as President, and my work in the years since, with HBO’s audience."

If you are wondering if any detailed coverage of Clinton's affairs would be included, it's too early to tell. While the whole film should not significantly highlight that, I hope that it digs deeper. I'd like to hear some updated thoughts on that as well as some other significant topics (Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Black Hawk Down) that came up during his term.

This has potential.

His documentary work has been better than his fiction films for a while, but he will probably paint Clinton in a far too positive light.

Yeah I have a feeling this will be a little too biased to be great.

everything is biased, so what. A movie about Bill Clinton being the spawn of Satan can be equally as good of a movie as one where Bill Clinton is painted as the son of God.

colour me interested.

also, what's wrong with Scorcese's latest fiction work? Hugo and Shutter Island were both really good films.

I thought Shutter Island was fantastic. There were obviously a few odds and ends that bothered me, but other than that, it's another solid DiCaprio-Scorsese tandem.

Never saw Hugo, though. I'm guessing I should check it out?

Shutter Island was the worst film in Scorsese's career, and there is a deep bench of underwhelming films to draw from.

I agree that Shutter Island is his worst film, but it's not a bad movie... that being said...

A deep bench of underwhelming films??? Really? He's got one or two duds in the lot but the good FAR outweighs the bad...

Scorsese has made quite a few excellent films in his career
