Who’s That Knocking at My Door?

Martin Scorcese 1967

A great debut from one of the great all time American filmmakers.  It’s super interesting to think about Scorcese working in the 60’s, living in his gangster’s paradise but going to see all the major European films of the era in New York’s art house theaters.  All of that comes through in WHO’S THAT KNOCKING.  So do a lot of the trademarks that Scorcese spent the next twenty years perfecting, such as the camera rotations: both inside looking out, as in the party scene (while the WATUSI rocks on the radio); and outside looking in, as in the lovemaking medley (while the Doors rock that euro loft with THE END).
