Scorsese often finds a way to publicly champion the films he loves most in a given year. “Tár” joins Ti West’s horror movie “Pearl” as one of two 2022 titles the Oscar-winning filmmaker has issued a statement of praise for. Back in September, he said “Pearl” was “so deeply disturbing” that he had trouble sleeping afterwards.
“‘Pearl’ makes for a wild, mesmerizing, deeply — and I mean deeply — disturbing 102 minutes,” Scorsese wrote in a statement. “West and his muse and creative partner Mia Goth really know how to toy with their audience… before they plunge the knife into our chests and start twisting.”
