Martin Scorsese, super genius

Yeah I guess. It's just if you compare it to a crime thriller like say High and Low (1963), I think movies back then new how to take their time compared to thrillers of today. I feel like maybe he is cutting for the 'MTV generation' as it's been called, or maybe that is incorrect of me to say?

Editing aside though, The Departed is probably my second favorite Scorsese movie still, after The Last Temptation of Christ.



A mediocre director with a handful of great films, and lots of meh.
Don't do this Minio. I like you. :'(

Don't do what?
Call Scorsese mediocre, haha.



Setsuko Hara is my co-pilot
Call Scorsese mediocre, haha.
He is. He's a solid filmmaker, but I respect him much more as a patron of the arts. He made some of these masterpieces more available/restored if I'm not mistaken.

He indeed has done a whole lot truly incredible work in the fields of restorations and increasing general awareness/accessibility of both actual independent American filmmakers and directors from every continent around the globe. And he's been doing ever since his started gaining momentum in the 70s

Martin Scorsese is a great director and he has crafted a lot of iconic films.

Who's That Knocking On My Door? never gets talked about enough. It gets recognized as a promising beginning to Scorcese's career, but it's one of my favorites of his films. The subject matter is so intriguing, and it has such a fascinatingly tragic and disturbing tone to it. J.R. is so strongly devoted to his Catholicism that he puts the blame on his love (She has no name, she's called Girl in the credits) for something she can't help. It really made an impact on me, and although I'm not sure if I would call it a masterpiece it most certainly is a great film.



⬆️ I’ve seen it. Not my favorite, but that’s okay.

Scorsese suddenly looks old in the IG photos above. Didn’t at first recognize him.

He not only perfected the gangster film, he also is probably one of the directors who had the most influence on film in general.
