Martin Scorsese

What was American cinema like before Martin Scorsese came along? It's a tough world to imagine. In dozens of films - including classics like Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Departed and more - Scorsese has raised more bars and pushed more envelopes than most people working in movies today. Having spent nearly half a century behind the camera, Scorsese has influenced countless filmmakers, and his unique vision has changed cinema forever.
