EXT: “WINTERLAND” – NIGHT
OPEN with a DISTRACTINGLY SHOW-OFFY ESTABLISHING SHOT. There are EXTRAS IN COSTUME everywhere.
People are taking DRUGS, which the camera FETISHIZES.
We find our hero, a MACHO GUY WHO LIVES BY HIS OWN CODE WHOM MARTIN SCORSESE WANTS TO FUCK, doing COCAINE out in open, because he is SO MACHO.
He walks up to TWO STONE-COLD TEEN FOXES with BIG TITS and gives them his business card.
C/U on the CARD. It reads “MACHO SCUNGILLI, PASTICHE RECORDS.”
The foxes are IMPRESSED and show him their TITS because we are on PAY CABLE.
Ooh. I do like them titties, girls. But not as much as I love
rock and roll music. And cocaine. And leather blazers. Also, I’m
married, which will be a boring sub-plot.
Macho ENTERS “Winterland” (which is not referred to by name due to rights issues).
We FOLLOW Macho on the SIGNATURE SCORSESE TRACKING SHOT through “Winterland.”
MUSIC CUE: STUDIO GUYS HALF-ASSING THROUGH A GRATEFUL DEAD SOUND-A-LIKE SONG
On the STAGE is the GRATEFUL DEAD, all of whom are played by MICK JAGGER’S SON.
Dig that crazy sound! What these guys need is a
little push from Pastiche Records! They’re jamming
so hard that the place might collapse!
The building COLLAPSES.
Macho RISES from the rubble like AMERICAN JESUS and SNORTS ALL THE COCAINE.
MUSIC CUE: SOMETHING BY THE ROLLING STONES.
