http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000217/bio Frequently casts Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, Leonardo DiCaprio, Victor Argo, and Joe Pesci. Begins his films with segments taken from the middle or end of the story. Examples include Raging Bull (1980), Goodfellas (1990) and Casino (1995). [slow-motion] Makes use of slow motion techniques (e.g., Mean Streets (1973), Taxi Driver (1976), Raging Bull (1980)). His lead characters are often sociopathic and/or want to be accepted in society. “Freeze”= Scorsese's technique of "freezing" objects generates a particular method of cinematic exposition in which characters and objects are portrayed in a moment between movement and non-movement; this "moment" is the bridge between potential behavior and stasis. The "thing" is frozen or suspended on the screen, and the possibility of either stasis or experience emerges from this momentary suspension. In essence and visual practice, Scorsese is combining techniques of both Stevens and Williams. Each suspended thing is like the frozen wheelbarrow with the potentiality of all that is pastoral lying behind it; moreover, the frozen object invites the viewer to make imaginative and thematic hypotheses about the film. Stevens and Williams are very different in the way that they approach the significance of "things," and Scorsese utilizes their divergent approaches to create a series of moments that offer both specificity and possibility. Two other Scorsese films, Goodfellas and Cape Fear, utilize the same imagistic device of presenting "frozen" images as vehicles to communicate themes about human relationships, guilt, and social responsibility. Goodfellas begins with the front of a Cadillac sprawling across the screen, and that image becomes the signpost for a disillusioned Henry Hill whose life moves through violence and drug dependency to mediocrity Extensive white lighting in scenes of his films. Often uses diagetic music (i.e., source of music is visible on-screen). His blonde leading ladies are usually seen through the eyes of the protagonist as angelic and ethereal; they always wear white in their first scene and are photographed in slow-motion (Cybill Shepherd in _Taxi Driver (1976)_ ; Cathy Moriarty's white bikini in Raging Bull (1980); Sharon Stone's white minidress in Casino (1995)). As the movie progresses, these ladies usually prove to be anything *but* angelic. Frequently uses music by The Rolling Stones ("Mean Streets", "Goodfellas", "Casino", "The Departed"), especially the song "Gimme Shelter" And are made in New York. Ranked #3 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Greatest directors ever!"  Oscar de melhor diretor em 2006. My whole life has been movies and religion. That's it. Nothing else. There is no such thing as pointless violence. "City of God" [Cidade de Deus (2002)], is that pointless violence? It's reality, it's real life, it has to do with the human condition. Being involved in Christianity and Catholicism when I was very young, you have that innocence, the teachings of Christ. Deep down you want to think that people are really good - but the reality outweighs that. American Film Institute Life Achievement Award. [20 February 1997] http://www.sensesofcinema.com/contents/directors/02/scorsese.html Martin Scorsese has been acknowledged as the greatest American filmmaker of his generation. The evidence of this critical acclaim is abundant: Mean Streets (1973), Taxi Driver (1976) and Raging Bull (1980) are all listed amongst the 360 Great Films as selected by Sight and Sound and the British Film Institute; (1) Raging Bull was selected as the greatest American film of the 1980s by American Film; (2) and Raging Bull finished second in the voting of Top Ten Films of all time (behind Citizen Kane) in an international poll of filmmakers in Sight and Sound in 1992. (3) His lack of recognition from the Academy Awards actually adds to rather than detracts from his reputation; after all, Orson Welles, Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick were also all denied Oscars. In recent times, Scorsese has been able to establish a place of prestige for himself within film culture. He has made two documentaries on national cinemas (United States and Italy) and has appeared in numerous history of cinema documentaries as a talking head authority. He continues to be a noted figure within film preservation, and has even extended into editing a series of reissued film books for the Modern Library. All of this cultural work on the part of Scorsese is perhaps necessary, given his lack of commercial success. By establishing himself as an important authority on film culture, he has almost guaranteed that he will be a powerful and influential figure within the future of American film. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Scorsese Martin Marcantonio Luciano Scorsese (born November 17, 1942) is an Academy Award-winning American film director, writer, producer, actor and film historian. Also affectionately known as "Marty", he is the founder of the World Cinema Foundation and a recipient of the AFI Life Achievement Award for his contributions to the cinema and has won awards from the Golden Globe, BAFTA, and Directors Guild of America. Scorsese is president of the Film Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to film preservation and the prevention of the decaying of motion picture film stock. His initial desire to become a priest was forsaken for cinema – the seminary traded for NYU Film School, where he received his MFA in film directing in 1969. Born in NY. Sicilian HERITAGE! EARLY CAREER= Although the Vietnam War had started at the time, Scorsese (who had struggled with asthma since his childhood) did not serve in the military. He attended New York University's film school (B.A., English, 1964; M.F.A., film, 1966) making the short films What's a Nice Girl Like You Doing in a Place Like This? (1963) and It's Not Just You, Murray! (1964). His most famous short of the period is the darkly comic The Big Shave (1967), which featured an unnamed man who shaves himself until profusely bleeding, ultimately slitting his own throat with his razor. The film is an indictment of America's involvement in Vietnam, suggested by its alternative title Viet '67. Also in 1967, Scorsese made his first feature-length film, the black and white Who's That Knocking at My Door with fellow student, actor Harvey Keitel, and editor Thelma Schoonmaker both of whom were to become long-term collaborators. This film was a precursor to his later Mean Streets. Even in embryonic form, the "Scorsese style" was already evident: a feel for New York Italian American street-life, rapid editing, an eclectic rock soundtrack, and a troubled male protagonist  Shutter Island On October 22, 2007, the Daily Variety reported that Scorsese will reunite with Leonardo DiCaprio on a fourth picture, Shutter Island.
