Famed director Martin Scorsese has been hired as a film critic for an American satellite TV service after complaining about their movie review system. The Aviator director will pen a monthly column for On DirecTV, a magazine and programme guide for people who subscribe to DirectTV, a satellite television service. Scorsese will offer critiques of overlooked films on DirecTV. Executives at the company came up with the idea when Scorsese, a DirecTV subscriber, wrote to the firm to suggest changes in the movie review system.
