What happened here? The first half hour of this track is just great - there are a few critic sidenotes explaining the motivations of the characters/film, but the bulk of it is Scorsese at his most chatty, outlining all the diverse influences (right from his first cinema experiences as a child) that eventually coalesced into 'New York, New York'. After that, everything weirdly changes gears and most of the remaining audio is the film's soundtrack with occasional comments here and there. Stick with the beginning section and forget the rest unless you have the patience to wait for the odd remark. Ten out of the ten for the first 30 minutes, 1 out of 10 for the rest.
