      As in living at a time when people are most disconnected but homicide is at its relative lowest (spike caused by a certain political movement in recent years). The real reason people flip is forced integration: you force people who don't want to be together together and sparks fly because people drive each other mad.

    I'm so glad that in his eighties he still has a mind as sharp as a twenty-something, still talks like a machine gun and still has an overwhelming energy in what he tells and how he tells it. May he live twenty more years developing projects, making history. I absolutely love him.

If only GQ had more time with him to break down his entire career

      On your 10th watch, Martin still wouldn't credit the original source material of The Departed in this interview. A legendary blockbuster in Cantonese film before being remade into an English version.

      @blueberry smasher he has credited that movie many times including in his Oscar speech. I wouldn't be surprised if Scorsese mentioned Infernal Affairs in the uncut interview for this and the editors figured it wasn't necessary because he has already done so on many occasions.

    I’m still amazed at how few people have seen Mean Streets. It’s one of my favorite Scorsese films and originates a lot of the signature things you see in his other movies.
    He’s had a ton of hits, and only a handful of misses. Incredibly hard to do in any creative profession.

    As someone who discovered Marty's cinema in 1999, i was 18 and i've watched "Bringing Out The Dead" four times in a week, always in an almost empty theater, then i've discovered his pictures and his documentaries of american and italian cinema, they helped me a lot, and they still do - thankyou for being around for so many decades helping to cultivate new generations of cinephiles, all around the world. History and memory, this is all we need to achieve a new ground of discussion, without that we're dead - we got to preserve the memory, remember the films, pass it on.

He is a perfect student of art, a great listener, fine observer amongst the greats and at the same time, crafting historical cinematic moments by simply letting his frame and actors be. He just doesn't know how great he is, simply a kid who love what he does even at 80!

    "Every other person is like Travis Bickle now". A very astute comment from Martin Scorsese. Taxi Driver foreshadowed our modern social decay. There are now thousands of Travis Bickles on social media and on city streets attacking or killing people over prejudices or partisan political ideology.

      Don't forget Hugo, which was a 3D steampunk adventure drama. I was dissapointed that GQ didn't have that movie for him to break down. It was the first Scorsese movie that I watched, obviously it's because it was rated PG so kids can definitely see it. I absolutely adore that movie, Sacha Baron Cohen was absolutely hilarious in the movie. It was one of the greatest 3D use I've ever seen in a movie, probably since Avatar. It was his love letter to cinema and won few Oscars too

      I'm so happy he break down Silence which is one of his most underrated movies. I wish he talked more about Boardwalk Empire which he was a major consultant of the show, directed the pilot and served as executive producer. Creator Terrence Winter said that Scorsese was the main reason why the seriee has many great actors

      @Perry The Platypus Even in a filmography as impressive as his, Silence is definitely one of the best. Watching it changed many of my attitudes to life

    Genius. One of the reasons I admire him so much is for personal reasons. Starting with Mean Streets going to Goodfellas he has authentically portrayed my life growing up in a working class Italian neighborhood. I lived through those times and his movies move me more for that reason. His authentic depiction of those times and people is brilliant and jarring at the same time. He gets it.

    Day-Lewis has some of the greatest dialog that’s ever been written for a Scorsese-helmed film. That line about the “moral conundrum” still gives me chills and what follows it immediately where he feigns sadness over the dead rabbit is absolute brilliance.

      I remember seeing Hugo in 3D and it was one of the greatest use of 3D i've ever seen in theaters, probably since Avatar. I do agree it's often overlooked eventhough it won few Oscars, it was definitely an amazing family movie given that it was Rated PG

The greatest director of all time in my opinion and still making some of his best films now 7 decades after he started in the 1960s

    'The Age of Innocence' is his best collaboration with Day-Lewis as well as his best film for me, just immaculate filmmaking on every level and one of the few costume dramas where the two leads act like real people ('The Piano' being another one I can think of).

    This should've been an hour interview, i'd love to see him break down Hugo. It was his first and only 3D movie so far and it was his love letter to cinema. It was the first ever Scorsese movie i watched as a kid (of course it's rated PG) and i absolutely adore every single minute of that masterpiece. The Age of Innocence, Shutter Island, After Hours, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore deserves more love too 🙌
