OUR FAVORITE MARTIN SCORSESE LOOKS BACK ON HIS TWO DECADES AS A DIRECTOR
Entertainment Weekly Magazine, 6 December 1991
Life Lessons in New York Stories (1989) is Scorsese's short movie about a famous artist (Nick Nolte) whose mistress leaves him.
"Although it's a small film, I'm as pleased with it as with any of the others. I used Procol Harum's A Whiter Shade of Pale because, for me, it captured the whole feeling of loss – the sense of a relationship ending and there's nothing you can do to stop it."
