    I worked with a chef who said he didn't want to cook at home as it was his work, nor did he care for his own cooking.

    Fucking legend. The guy could talk about movies all day and not a touch of arrogance.

    Scorsese is damn near 80 yrs old and he still has the voice and verbal cadence of a 20 yr old kid with ADHD. I can't imagine talking to this motherfucker in the 1970's when he was strung out on coke. It's fucking amazing no one has made a fictionalized character study about Scorsese on cocaine.

    Sounds like he wants to do TV, or would be a great fit for TV.

    I can listen to Scorsese talk about film making and other directors all day as he is such a student of film. Now having said that I think Wolf of Wall Street is a gratuitous vulgar piece of garbage and I have heard Leo and him try and explain that it’s a cautionary tale but this film was beneath them. They’re better than that

    What I love about Scorsese is that he will talk to someone in an interview like this in a casual way the he would talk to a friend or pretty much anyone, no guardedness.

  • Jay Stedman

    I'm an aspiring filmmaker of 15 years of age and Scorcese talks about how it's different because kids are narratively and visually influenced by the films of today but I disagree, the films that I love, that I've learnt from are films of the last generation, his films, Lumet's and Coppola's and more - Deer Hunter, The Graduate, Alien. So I don't thinks we're products of the problematic story telling of 'modern' movies. I think the ones of us that will succeed are the ones who are now what the master before us have done for us and we're gonna build from that not bam, bam, bam media we get from our phones and tablets.

    Good interview. I think we're lucky that Scorsese gives so much time and thought explaining his process. He could easily make a movie every 5 years and not talk to anyone. He's a great teacher. This channel and TVclip is a valuable resource for filmmakers.

    I find his films to be exquisite works of art, but often lacking in socially redeeming value. I wish he did more insightful films like After Hours.

      +Oliver Steers Have you even seen Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, or Raging Bull? They're all some of the greatest films, if not the greatest, of their respective decades and their influence can't be overstated when compared to an average crime thriller adaptation like The Departed. Also, De Niro's performances in those films absolutely kill anyone else's in Departed.

    Why does this guy suck Leo DiCaprios cock so much? One of the worst actors in motion picture history and Marty can't get enough of the little whiny ass bitch. WTF is going on there? The guy is ruining his career, one shit movie after another made with that little shit. Wolf of Wall street was an abomination, Shutter Island a complete joke, The Departed, Aviator, crap Gangs of New York, absolute crap, crap all fucking crap, nowhere near the quality of movies Scorsese use to make before he started working with the little shitbag.

    • TheReccher

      Scorsese and Tarantino use him because he's a great actor. Simple. Scorsese has stated he used him because he was hugely impressed by his talent. A bad actor would not impress an elite level director like Martin Scorsese.

    • shantytown
      shantytown 5 years ago +2

      Wolf of Wall Street, Shutter (this movie off as it's a total load of crap) Island, Aviator, The Departed...I agree all a complete load of crap. What has happened with this guy, he's gone from being one of the best to one of the worst. Does he think that he can apply the same narration technique coupled with the condensed/fast scenes and the audience naturally forget that the film is total crap? Maybe and maybe some people are hypnotized by that, but check Goodfellas or Casino for the same techniques and see how much better they are or watch Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Cape Fear (Master Pieces) and see how bad these new films are when compared. His new films are truly shit.

  • RyanGiggsOBE

    Every time someone ever mentions Scorsese, the first thing I think off is that long take in Goodfellas. Such a great film maker and seems really down to earth.

  • wattamutt

    Wolf of wall street should have won the Oscar for best picture. Goodfellas should have won and raging bull should have won best picture also.

      @wattamutt Which film is the "I will be clean" scene from?

    • Vincent H.
      Vincent H. Year ago

      Ordinary People winning Best Picture over Raging Bull is easily by far the worst Oscar upset of all time. Raging Bull has endured as a cinematic masterpiece many consider a top 10-20 film of all time and Ordinary People was a slightly above average typical 80s weepie family drama.

    • wattamutt

      I didnt like it at all. That whole "I will be clean" scene was torture to watch for me.

      +wattamutt I agree with you in the Godfellas and Raging Bull argument, but I disagree with you on The Wolf of Wall Street. 12 Years A Slave won in 2013 and deserving so. It deserves to be in discussion with The Godfather, On The Waterfront, ect. A "man amongst boys" type of film in my opinion. It was robbed of Best Actor, Best Director and Best Cinematography as well. With that being said, I love The Wolf of Wall Street, but they made the right choice that particular year.
