This video was originally made by director Martin Scorsese for the graduation examination. But later, with more and more ideas and increasing space, new ideas and themes were constantly determined, and finally became a long debut video directed by Martin Scorsese.

During the intermittent four-year shooting, he changed his name several times, “bring your partner” and “this film will save your marriage”. In 1967, the video increased its length and was named “I said it first” until 1969, when the video was named “who’s knocking on my door?”. Mardik Martin, a former assistant director of the film, said: “this video has been shot for many years, and many things have changed. At that time, the cost budget of the video was very low, almost no budget, so it looked like a family movie.”

Since it is a patchwork video, it is not great, but the technically astringent director Martin Scorsese exudes his unique style.

Harvey Keitel’s official job at that time was to be a stenographer in the court. At the same time, he studied acting in the college. Like many actors, he went to the crew when he saw in the magazine that the students of the film academy wanted to make an advertisement for actors in their graduation works.

Harvey Keitel’s own temperament is like that of assistant director mardik Martin: “he feels very similar to director Martin Scorsese, especially in dealing with the expression in religious ceremony. But Harvey is an actor. He is full of expressive consciousness and looks melancholy and confused. Martin is a very careful observer, hiding in the corner to find what he wants.” In fact, from one aspect, we can understand why director Martin Scorsese asked Harvey Keitel to be the hero of this video. At first, the works made by director Martin Scorsese for graduation had the flavor of homework and very real self-expression. If feasible, Martin Scorsese will become the male star in his graduation works. In this way, the director obviously wants to find a very suitable actor, an actor who is very suitable to express the director’s voice. In this way, Harvey Keitel and Martin Scorsese are very similar and reasonable. In a conversation with Harvey Keitel, he once mentioned his acquaintance with director Martin Scorsese: “when Marty and I share a room, we gradually find that we have a lot in common with each other. It’s like ‘falling in love at first sight’, and it’s a little late to meet. Once we enter a journey, someone will always support and help you along the way.” Who’s knocking on my door During the shooting process, Harvey Keitel impressed the director and everyone, saying he was a good man. Because low-cost video has little economic ability to hire actors for a long time, it is very afraid that the actors will run away halfway. However, Harvey Keitel has always reassured everyone.

I’ve watched “who’s knocking on my door?” many times, Very surprised at Harvey Keitel’s performance! I didn’t expect that he was still a student of acting. He came to the crew as a part-time performer. He could perform so well as a star for the first time! I’m really surprised.

Who’s knocking on my door This video is still very romantic on the whole. It’s about the role of J.R. played by Harvey Keitel. He is an idle Street hooligan who muddles through life with his good friends every day. Later, J.R. fell in love with a girl and missed her day and night. He was very concerned about the difference between “girl” and “chick”, hoping that the girl he liked was pure. But this girl was raped by her ex boyfriend. J. R. was very ambivalent and felt that the girl was lying. After a while, J.R. couldn’t help missing the girl and said he forgave her. The girl was very unhappy because it was not her fault to be raped. The video ended when things didn’t work out. There are many interesting life scenes of him and his good friends in the middle of the plot.

Some of the performances. J. R. quarreled with his buddy on the way and was driven out of the car. Without hesitation, he crossed the road, stood on the safety island, looked at the distance and looked stubborn, but immediately he couldn’t help being wronged. Tears swirled in his eyes, followed his friend’s car back and made up with it, and then he returned to the car again. The performance here is very wonderful. In fact, it is a moment’s mood. Stubbornness is followed by grievance. It is excessively smooth and natural. I think everyone has such an experience, so it’s true to see Harvey Keitel perform like this.

J. R. hugged and kissed the girl on the bed in grandma’s room. He suddenly stopped his intimate action. The girl asked him what happened. He said nothing. The girl continued to ask why he stopped? He looked away and said, “I want to do that… There’s no reason… Do you mind?” That’s why I looked at the girl. The girl agreed, but after a while he stopped again and insisted that he didn’t want to do it. He didn’t know how to say what was in his mind. In fact, he is not a conservative person. He often has one night stands with chicks. The reason is that he really loves that girl, so he can’t do anything.

When J.R. knew that the girl was not a virgin, he was very confused and drowned his worries with wine. When I got drunk late at night, I returned to my residence. I stood alone against the wall in the corridor. The sad color covered the whole face, gloomy and heavy. Then he sat down against the wall, his hands around his knees, and his love immersed the whole person in bitter water.

Such emotional drama, full of passion and drama in the performance, extremely infected me as a viewer. This corrects the previous view of Harvey Keitel. He is a very good actor. What surprised me most was that he was still a student studying acting.

From harevy Keitel, I feel that with the growth of age, the feelings given by actors to roles will become more and more natural and inner. Sometimes you can’t even feel it, but it really exists and has been processed by art.

Because the shooting fund of this video is limited, it is very difficult to choose the scene. The whole video was shot in some people’s homes, corridors, small bars, rooftops of buildings and small churches in the community. Even so, it’s interesting when you know some of them. When shooting a scene of several people fighting in the street, all members of the crew should raise their vigilance to the highest, because there are real gangsters in the street. If they also join the fight team, it will be a big trouble. Some scenes in the room were shot at the grandmother’s house directed by Martin Scorsese. The assistant director said that everyone should finish the trick before grandma comes home. If grandma saw that the walls were covered with tape because of the shooting, she would go crazy.

I’m imagining the situation at that time. A group of young people just tried all kinds of ways for simple purposes. How many interesting things are there. I really want to see what Martin’s grandmother thinks of their children. ha-ha.

In the various scenes of the video, it is obvious how director Martin Scorsese shot the continuous dialogue of the characters. We can always see a lot of film and television plays. Two or more people have a wonderful dialogue, but the lens is very rigid. The two can not complement each other. In this video, especially the dialogue between the hero and heroine in the waiting room of the ferry, the processing is very lively. Set up the lens in an all-round way, and deal with it according to the specific situation. Perhaps because the era was the mid-1960s, it seemed that such a technique was very new at that time.

One of the reasons why I was interested in this video and enjoyed it later was Harvey Keitel’s performance, and the scene with the end of the doors as the background music.

This section was shot in the Netherlands in 1969, four years after the video was shot. According to the requirements of the publisher at that time, some erotic lenses need to be added to improve their appeal. Only in this way can this video be released. As a Creator with independent thinking, I think director Martin’s mood must have been very complicated at that time. But anyway, he made up and did a great job!

In this scene, the end by the doors band should be the live version of San Francisco in 1968, which is the one that Jim Morrison sang the lyrics of Killing Father and mother. In response to such a shocking song, the lens switches, swings and rotates between J.R. and women, with a sense of endless confusion. It depicts the bodies of men and women as beautiful and indisputable. At the same time, it carries the depression in conflict, but it can’t refuse to degenerate. When all the playing cards collapsed and shot, everything stopped and disappeared, just like the dust of memory. Although it is an erotic lens, desire is not close to it at all. The style of the whole paragraph is very strong and rational.

I like this video and have special feelings. I like Harvey Keitel, an old actor, but I’ve never seen him look so young and perform so passionately. At the same time, I was excited that he was not a full-time actor at that time, but he performed very well.

I like this video because it’s directed by Martin Scorsese. I like director Martin’s early works very much. At that time, as a director, he had an ordinary heart, observed life and recorded life. Who’s knocking on my door Although it is not a successful masterpiece, there are too many flashes in it, which indirectly records the colorful life around him and his friends.
