Scorsese does Hitchcock

Martin Scorsese takes a break from some of his other endorsement work to produce and direct this 9 minute masterpiece of a short-film/parody/ad for Spanish winemaker Freixenet.

The fictional story called The Key to Reserva is based on the premise that Scorsese has found a long lost Alfred Hitchcock script and has decided to shoot it as a homage to him. He cleverly incorporates visuals inspired by classics like North By Northwest, Rear Window, The Man Who New Too Much, Spellbound and The Birds. Any true Hitchcock fan will really enjoy this.
