American Express "One Hour Photo"

Published on .

The venerable Martin Scorsese can't seem to put the lid on his own self-critical tendencies, even when it comes to analyzing snapshots he took of his nephew's birthday. "How could I have done this?" he self-flagellates. "I have lost the narrative thread. Unavoidable, gotta reshoot!" he declares to the One Hour Photo clerk. Thanks to Amex a do-over is just clicks away for the perfectionist, whose impressive humorous performance shines under the sharp comedic eye of Hungry Man's Jim Jenkins.
