Martin Scorsese Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Martin Scorsese born on 17 November 1942, in Queens, New York City USA of Italian-American descent, and is a film director, screenwriter, actor, producer and film historian probably best known for directing such outstanding flims as “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”, “Taxi Driver” and “Raging Bull”.

As he is regarded as one of the most influential filmmakers in cinema history, we may ask “How rich is Martin Scorsese?” Sources indicate that Martin has an estimated net worth of $70 million, the majority of his wealth having been accumulated from his successful film directing career, and making him one of the richest film directors.

Martin Scorsese Net Worth $70 Million

Martin Scorsese suffered intense asthma in his school years at Cardinal Hayes High School, which prevented him from playing sports,so he became an avid film fan. He toyed with the priesthood, but his interest in movies he enrolled at NYU’s University College of Arts and Science, graduating with BA in English in 1964, and then with a Master of Fine Arts from NYU’s School of the Arts in 1966.

Martin Scorsese made his first feature-length film in 1967, the black and white movie eventually named “Who’s That Knocking at My Door”. Martin’s net worth was not growing as he was just a beginner, however, in the 1970s, in collaboration with actor Robert de Niro, Scorsese directed his breakthrough film “Mean Streets”, which increased his net worth sufficiently to fund and direct “Taxi Driver”(1976) which was later nominated for several Oscars. His early career also included such movies as “New York, New York”, and “The Last Waltz”.

Scorsese’s “Raging Bull”(1980) was voted the greatest film of the 1980s by Britain’s “Sight&Sound” magazine and received eight Oscar nominations. In terms of style, this movie was different from Scorsese`s previous masterpieces. During the 1980s Scorsese also produced such movies as “The King of Comedy”, “After Hours”, “The Colour of Money”, and “The Last Temptation of Christ”, which led to mixed results in terms of growing his net worth. However, “Goodfellas” released in 1990  returned confidence to Scorsese, as it was ranked as No. 1 on Roger`s movie list for 1990, and was nominated for six Academy Awards, so nowadays it is considered to be one of the best achievements of this film director.

Martin has also directed such movies as “Casino” (1995), “Gangs of New York” (2002) (which made Martin Scorsese’s net worth $6,000,000 larger), “The Aviator” (2004), “Hugo” (2011) earning him $10,000,000, among others. “The Departed” (2006) was Martin`s highest grossing film until “Shutter Island” (2010) which increased Martin Scorsese net worth by $3.5 million. “The Departed” earned him probably one of the most significant awards in his life: his second Golden Globe for Best Director, his first Directors Guild of America Award, and an Oscar (Academy Award) for Best Director.

In his personal life, Martin Scorsese has been married five times: Laraine Marie Brennan(1965–1971), they have a daughter; Julia Cameron(1976–1977), also a daughter; Isabella Rossellini(1979–1982); Barbara de Fina(1985–1991); and Helen Schermerhorn Morris(1999–present) with whom he also has a daughter: they live in New York.

Finally, Time magazine has nominated Martin Scorsese as one of the most influential people in the world. His great contribution to celluloid, and his unique style of movies about mobsters, violence in modern life and liberal use of profanity makes Martin Scorsese one of America`s most respected modern filmmakers. The film director also touches such topics as Italian-American identity, Roman Catholic concepts of guilt and machismo in his films.

#Fact
1 He directed Victor Argo in six films: Boxcar Bertha (1972), Mean Streets (1973), Taxi Driver (1976), After Hours (1985), The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) and New York Stories (1989).
2 (November 30, 2016) For the very first time the director had the great privilege of a private audience with Pope Francis in the Vatican in the company of his wife Helen Morris, daughters Francesca Scorsese, Cathy Scorsese and fellow producer Gastón Pavlovich. Scorsese screened his religious epic Silence (2016) (Nov. 29th) at the Jesuit-run Pontifical Oriental Institute in Rome for an international group of Jesuits and again (Nov. 30th) in the Vatican for a select group of guests.
3 All but three of his feature films have received at least one Academy Award nomination: New York, New York (1977), The King of Comedy (1982) and After Hours (1985).
4 First heard of Leonardo DiCaprio through old friend Robert De Niro who had co-starred with Leo in This Boy's Life (1993). He later spotted him on television one night in What's Eating Gilbert Grape (1993) which he thought, at first, was a documentary. By the time Leo had had his breakthrough outing in the blockbuster Titanic (1997), he was now in a position to help greenlight the production of Gangs of New York (2002).
5 Martin Scorsese and Robert de Niro were brought up blocks apart in the Greenwich Village area of Manhattan, but never formally met when they were young. When introduced at a party in 1972, the two came to realize that they had seen each other many times but had never spoken.
6 President of the 'Cinéfondation and Short Films' jury at the 55th Cannes International Film Festival in 2002.
7 Peter Bogdanovich and George Cuckor signed Martin Scorsese's directing card that allowed him into the Directors Guild.
8 Was Francis Ford Coppola's choice to direct The Godfather: Part II (1974), but Paramount Pictures wanted Coppola back, with the promise of his own creative freedom.
9 Has a phobia of flying on airplanes.
10 St. Patrick's Old Cathedral is used as a location in two Martin Scorsese films, which are "Who's That Knocking at My Door" and Mean Streets (1973).
11 Despite the fact that Martin Scorsese does not like remakes, he has directed two. The first was Cape Fear (1991) and the second was The Departed (2006). The Departed is a remake of the Hong Kong film Infernal Affairs (2002).
12 Leonardo DiCaprio thanked him when he won the Best Actor Oscar for Alejandro G. Iñárritu's The Revenant (2015). During his acceptance speech, DiCaprio thanked Scorsese for "teaching him so much about the cinematic art form" [February 28, 2016].
13 Martin Scorsese made cameo appearances as a photographer in two films that he directed. The two films are The Age of Innocence (1993) and Hugo (2011).
14 Martin Scorsese presented both Robert De Niro and Mel Brooks their AFI Lifetime Achievement awards.
15 Eric Clapton gave Martin Scorsese the gold record of the song "Sunshine of Your Love" as a gift. Martin Scorsese used this song in Goodfellas (1990).
16 Once considered producing a remake of Akira Kurosawa's High and Low (1963) with Mike Nichols as the director.
17 In two of his films, After Hours (1985) and Cape Fear (1991), writer Henry Miller is mentioned.
18 Is a huge fan of comedians. He has also directed comedians such as Alan King, Kevin Pollak, Don Rickles, Dick Smothers and Jerry Lewis.
19 He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on February 28, 2003.
20 The film that had the greatest influence on him is Duel in the Sun (1946).
21 Has been directed by such directors as Robert Altman, Robert Redford, Akira Kurosawa, Albert Brooks and Irwin Winkler.
22 Has written three books on the cinema - "A Director's Diary: the Making of Kundun", "The Magic Box: 201 Movie Favourites" and "A Personal journey with Martin Scorcese Through American Movies" (A literary adaption of his Channel 4/British Film Institute documentary).
23 Once surprised Dave Chappelle by saying he was a fan and quoting from "The Playa Haters Ball".
24 Despite being known for directing extremely dark and often very violent movies, he is known in real life to be a very friendly, polite and mild-mannered person who gets along very well with his cast and crew.
25 Admits he made Hugo (2011) so he would have at least one film his daughter could watch.
26 Despite being known for his gangster films, he has only made five films out of almost 50 about the Mob: Mean Streets (1973), Goodfellas (1990), Casino (1995), Gangs of New York (2002) and The Departed (2006). His other films vary in genre and style, from period epics to musical to biopic of the 14th Dalai Lama.
27 President of the jury at the 13th Marrakech Film Festival in 2013.
28 Was at one time interested in making a remake of Scarface (1932) with Robert De Niro.
29 Just confirmed to make a biopic of Frank Sinatra. [May 2009]
30 Honorary president of the Vienna Film museum [2005]
31 Was given the script of Taxi Driver (1976) by his friend Brian De Palma.
32 Named after his maternal grandfather, Martin "Filippo" Cappa.
33 Went to see The Searchers (1956) on the afternoon of the day that he graduated from Parochial school.
34 Donated his collection of papers, photographs, memorabilia and other film-related ephemera to the Wesleyan University Cinema Archive, where it is conserved along with the collections of such film luminaries as Frank Capra, Clint Eastwood, Ingrid Bergman, John Waters, Elia Kazan and others. The Archive is kept under the supervision of renowned film historian, scholar and Professor of Film Studies Jeanine Basinger.
35 According to lifelong collaborator Thelma Schoonmaker, Marty's favorite facet of the filmmaking process is the editing.
36 The Magic Box (1951) was the film that created the biggest impression on him and made him think he could do film making himself.
37 Directed three films on the American Film Institute's list of the 100 Greatest Movies: Raging Bull (1980) at #4, Taxi Driver (1976) at #52 and Goodfellas (1990) at #92.
38 Scorsese's elaborate 2010 docu-commercial for "Bleu de Chanel" men's French fragrance, flashes a very brief image of a clapper board with the name - "C Cappa" - written on the Director credit space. Apparently this is an homage to his mother whose maiden name was C(atherine) Cappa.
39 The death of Federico Fellini was very similar to his father's death. Bypass surgery, a stroke and then a coma. Scorsese also noted that they both lasted exactly the same days in the coma.
40 Other than his short films and documentaries, all his film from 1972 to 1990 were shot in Widescreen aspect ratio (1.85:1) and all his film from 1992 onward were shot in CinemaScope aspect ratio (2.35:1).
41 On Inside the Actors Studio (1994), he said the directors that inspired him the most are John Cassavetes, Orson Welles, John Ford, Federico Fellini, Elia Kazan, Roberto Rossellini, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger.
42 The first movie he saw at the cinema was Duel in the Sun (1946), he was age 4.
43 As of March 2016, seven of his films are on the IMDb's Top 250 Films list: Goodfellas (1990), Taxi Driver (1976), Raging Bull (1980), The Departed (2006), Casino (1995), Shutter Island (2010) and The Wolf of Wall Street (2013).
44 Roger Ebert is a great admirer of Scorsese's work. 14 of Scorsese's films were given four stars by Ebert (Mean Streets (1973), Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974), Taxi Driver (1976), Raging Bull (1980), After Hours (1985), The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), Goodfellas (1990), The Age of Innocence (1993), Casino (1995), Kundun (1997), Bringing Out the Dead (1999), The Aviator (2004), The Departed (2006), Shine a Light (2008)), seven of his films are in Ebert's Great Movies list (Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, After Hours, The Last Temptation of Christ, Goodfellas and The Age of Innocence), and Ebert has written an entire book of his reviews, interviews and essays on Scorsese's work simply titled "Scorsese By Ebert".
45 Haig Manoogian was Scorsese's mentor at NYU. He eventually produced Scorsese's first film (I Call First (1967)) and when he died in 1980, Scorsese dedicated Raging Bull (1980) to Manoogian.
46 In the fifth edition of 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (edited by Steven Jay Schneider), seven of Scorsese's films are listed: Mean Streets (1973), Taxi Driver (1976), Raging Bull (1980), The King of Comedy (1982), Goodfellas (1990), Casino (1995) and The Departed (2006).
47 Is a huge fan of Fawlty Towers (1975). He describes the episode, Fawlty Towers: The Germans (1975), as "so tasteless, it's hilarious".
48 Is a huge fan of the British Hammer Films series.
49 Attended Cardinal Hayes high school in the Bronx as a young man. Fellow alumni included George Carlin, George Dzundza, Regis Philbin, Jamal Mashburn and Don DeLillo.
50 Resides in New York City. His production offices are located on West 57th Street in Manhattan.
51 He was made a Fellow of the British Film Institute in recognition of his outstanding contribution to film culture.
52 Served as a guest critic on Siskel & Ebert (1986) following the death of Gene Siskel. The episode was "The Best Films of the 90s" in which Roger Ebert cited Scorsese's Goodfellas (1990) as one of the best films of the 1990s (#3). Scorsese's full list of his favorite films of the 1990s: 10.) Tie: Malcolm X (1992) and Heat (1995), 9.) Fargo (1996), 8.) Crash (1996), 7.) Bottle Rocket (1994), 6.) Breaking the Waves (1996), 5.) Bad Lieutenant (1992), 4.) Eyes Wide Shut (1999), 3.) Duo sang (1994), 2.) The Thin Red Line (1998), 1.) The Horse Thief (1986).
53 Was originally going to direct The Honeymoon Killers (1970), but was replaced after a week of shooting.
54 Says the only thing he regrets in his career is that he was only able to make The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) on a small budget although he imagined it to be a grand version.
55 Recipient of the 2007 Kennedy Center Honors. Other recipients that year were Leon Fleisher, Steve Martin, Diana Ross, and Brian Wilson.
56 Says he was happy with the fact that it took so long for him to win Best Director, because if he had won it earlier, it would have affected his directing and films.
57 As a teenager in the Bronx, Scorsese frequently rented Michael Powell's The Tales of Hoffmann (1951) from a store that only had one copy of the reels. When this was not available the owner told him, "that Romero kid has it", referring to George A. Romero who was also a huge fan of the film. Today, both directors cite the film as a major influence.
58 When he won his Best Director Oscar for The Departed (2006), he received the award from legendary directors, George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola, and Steven Spielberg. The four were part of the "New Hollywood" movement of the 1970s and combined have nine Academy Awards and 38 nominations.
59 Directed 18 different actors in Oscar nominated performances: Jodie Foster, Robert De Niro (three times), Joe Pesci (twice), Leonardo DiCaprio (twice), Daniel Day-Lewis, Cate Blanchett, Winona Ryder, Ellen Burstyn, Sharon Stone, Diane Ladd, Cathy Moriarty, Juliette Lewis, Lorraine Bracco, Paul Newman, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Alan Alda, Mark Wahlberg and Jonah Hill. Burstyn, De Niro, Newman, Pesci and Blanchett won Oscars for their roles in one of Scorsese's movies.
60 Has worked with big names of music business: Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, U2, Michael Jackson and David Bowie.
61 The Aviator (2004) was his first movie to gross over $100 million in the United States.
62 The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) is the highest-grossing movie of his 47-year career with a worldwide gross of $389,600,694.
63 In November 2006, he signed a four-year, first-look deal to develop projects with studio executives of Paramount Pictures.
64 Scorsese and Taxi Driver (1976) are, among others, named as inspiration for the Massive Attack debut "Blue Lines".
65 The 1912 American Mutoscope & Biograph Company short The Musketeers of Pig Alley (1912) heavily influenced Scorsese in the making of his own gangster films Goodfellas (1990), and Gangs of New York (2002). The film was picked by Scorcese for his 2005 tribute at Beaubourg, centre d'art et de culture Georges Pompidou (1977) in Paris, France. Biograph is the oldest movie company in America and in existence today, headed by producer/director Thomas R. Bond II.
66 Served as mentor to Georgia Lee and invited her to apprentice for Gangs of New York (2002) in Europe.
67 He received a Degree ad honorem in "Cinema, TV and Multimedia Production" from the University of Bologna on November 26, 2005.
68 As of 2013, has directed seven biopics: Raging Bull (1980), The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), Goodfellas (1990), Casino (1995), Kundun (1997), The Aviator (2004) and The Wolf of Wall Street (2013).
69 When asked where audiences would find the next Martin Scorsese, he said to look to Wes Anderson, the young director of Rushmore (1998).
70 Was friend, protégé, and employee of actor-director John Cassavetes.
71 His favorite films include: Citizen Kane (1941), The Red Shoes (1948) and The Leopard (1963).
72 Ranked #3 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Greatest directors ever!" [2005]
73 Has mentioned that he thought Robert De Niro's best performance under his direction was as Rupert Pupkin in The King of Comedy (1982).
74 President of jury at the Cannes Film Festival in 1998.
75 In 1975, he accepted the Oscar for "Best Actress in a Leading Role" on behalf of Ellen Burstyn, who wasn't present at the awards ceremony. She won for her performance in Scorsese's Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974)
76 He lost three best director - and best picture - Oscars to leading-man actors turned directors: Robert Redford, Kevin Costner and Clint Eastwood (Raging Bull (1980) lost to Redford's Ordinary People (1980); Goodfellas (1990) to Costner's Dances with Wolves (1990); The Aviator (2004) to Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby (2004)). On the only two occasions when he was Oscar-nominated as Best Director in years ending in zero, he was beaten by actors making their directorial debuts (Redford and Costner). In similar circumstance, has lost two times the Best Director Oscar to directors who act occasionally. Nominations came from Gangs of New York (2002) (lost out to trained actor Roman Polanski in The Pianist (2002)) and The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) (lost to Barry Levinson for _Rain Man (1988)).
77 Personally spurns the notion of the "director's cut" feeling that once a film has been completed, this should not be further altered in any way.
78 Apart from his legendary work as a filmmaker, he has been a vocal supporter of film preservation for almost three decades. His efforts to create a strong public awareness for the work of film archives include The Film Foundation, a non-profit organisation which he started together with other filmmakers. The Film Foundation regularly partners with the American film archives on the restoration of "lost" or endangered films. With this background he has agreed to serve as Honorary President of the Austrian Film Museum in Vienna.
79 Has appeared in an "American Express" ad where he goes to pick up photos of his nephew's birthday party at a drug store, and then proceeds to nervously pick through what's wrong with each picture while trying to get the clueless photo-lab clerk's opinion on them. He proceeds to buy more film with an American Express card and calls the people on the pictures saying they need to reshoot. Scorsese says this funny ad is probably the closest he's come to accurately "playing" himself.
80 Has famously collaborated with Robert De Niro in eight films. Scorsese has said that his creative collaboration with De Niro is very deep and that they can often understand each other without even talking. Their collaboration has had many dry spells (including recently), but Scorsese says he shows almost every script he writes or considers directing to De Niro to see what the actor's thoughts on them are even when De Niro ultimately has no involvement in the film.
81 Both The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) and Gangs of New York (2002) were personal passions of his that he had wanted to make since the 1970s. When he first starting considering them, Robert De Niro was in his mind to play the lead characters in both (Jesus Christ in "Temptation" and Bill Cutting in "Gangs"). De Niro ultimately turned down the role in "Temptation" and this was decided he was too old to play Cutting by the time that "Gangs" finally went into production.
82 Because so many of his actors win or are nominated for awards, actors are dying to work with him. The film With Friends Like These... (1998) pokes fun at this very real desire.
83 He was one of three major directors to have been offered the opportunity to direct Schindler's List (1993) by producer Steven Spielberg, the other two being Roman Polanski and Billy Wilder. Scorsese thought a Jewish filmmaker should direct this; Polanski was not yet ready to deal with the painful subject (having lost his mother in the Holocaust); and Wilder (who was retired and who lost his mother and grandmother in the Holocaust) finally told Spielberg that he should do this himself.
84 Several characters in his films refer to the legendary (noir) actor John Garfield, star of the original film The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946), which is also mentioned.
85 Has appeared on Curb Your Enthusiasm (2000) as a shrill version of himself who comes to regret his decision to cast Larry David as a violent gangster in a movie after David repeatedly ruins the suit he needs to wear as the character.
86 Was voted the fourth greatest director of all time by Entertainment Weekly, making him the only living person in the top 5 and the only working film director in the top 10 (Ingmar Bergman being retired as a filmmaker).
87 Of the three films he has been trying to make since the mid-1970s, he has done two: The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) and Gangs of New York (2002). The third film, a biopic of Dean Martin called "Dino", has been on hiatus at Warner Brothers since the late 1990s. Scorsese has a very specific all A-list cast in mind, probably why this has yet to be produced. He wants Tom Hanks to star as Martin, Jim Carrey to play Jerry Lewis, John Travolta to play Frank Sinatra, Hugh Grant to play Peter Lawford, and Adam Sandler to play Joey Bishop.
88 Has asthma.
89 Is of Italian-Sicilian descent.
90 Father of actress Cathy Scorsese with Laraine Marie Brennan.
91 Is the subject of the song "Martin Scorsese" by alternative band King Missile.
92 Has a dog named Silas.
93 He took a cameo in his film Taxi Driver (1976) (as a man about to kill his wife) only because the actor who was supposed to play the role was sick on the day the scene was to be shot. Says he is generally uncomfortable in front of the camera.
94 Was at one point slated to direct Clockers (1995), but for reasons that are not entirely clear, handed the directing chores to his onetime NYU student Spike Lee, while staying on as producer. He was also at one point going to direct Little Shop of Horrors (1986) for David Geffen, with Steven Spielberg as the executive producer. He was ultimately uninvolved, but claims that he wanted to shoot the movie in 3-D. It no doubt would have been a loving homage to Roger Corman, for whom he directed Boxcar Bertha (1972).
95 He was an altar boy at Old St. Patrick's Cathedral, which was used in his early films I Call First (1967) and Mean Streets (1973). Old St. Patrick's is also where the baptism scene in The Godfather (1972) took place.
96 Was at one point going to make a movie about the life of comedian Richard Pryor.
97 Taught both Oliver Stone and Spike Lee at New York University.
98 John Woo dedicated his action film The Killer (1989) to Scorsese on a commentary he did for the movie's DVD.
99 Has one daughter with Helen Morris: Francesca Scorsese. Has one daughter with Julia Cameron: Domenica Cameron-Scorsese.
100 He appears as attached to his pet white Bichon Frise Zoe as he was to his beloved parents - except Zoe is right beside Marty every day in the office.
101 He directed Michael Jackson's music video Michael Jackson: Bad (1987). The full length video runs 16 minutes and is in both black and white and color. It is usually shortened down to just the color segment for television.
102 His name is pronounced "Scor-sez-see".
103 Good friends with editor Thelma Schoonmaker and cinematographer Michael Ballhaus. Scorsese introduced Thelma to her husband Michael Powell and he often quotes Powell as an influence.
104 Is a longtime friend and was once a housemate of The Band's Robbie Robertson. He directed The Last Waltz (1978), the documentary of their supposedly last gig which Robertson produced. Robertson later produced the soundtrack for Scorsese's The Color of Money (1986).
105 Presented with a special tribute at the 1976 Telluride Film Festival. It was presented by Michael Powell. [1976]
106 Awarded third annual John Huston Award for Artists Rights by the Artists Rights Foundation. [1995]
107 (December 19, 1996) Listed as one of 50 people barred from entering Tibet. Disney clashed with Chinese officials over the film Kundun (1997), which Scorsese directed.

#Quote
1 There's no way I can compare a movie of mine to the films that formed me.
2 When I went to Hollywood in the '70s, what I saw of the old Hollywood was dying away.
3 Max von Sydow is iconic in cinema. There's no doubt about it. He changed the face of cinema with his portrayals, going back to Ingmar Bergman.
4 [on Nicolas Cage] I was looking in a way for a picture that I would be able to work with him on. I remember a few years ago his uncle Francis Coppola asked me to meet him and I did and we had a nice talk. And a couple of Christmases ago, Brian De Palma told me at a Christmas dinner he's really great to work with, he did Snake Eyes (1998) with him.
5 Cape Fear (1991) was an attempt to work in the mainstream.
6 [on Mean Streets (1973)] I was so pleased when Warner Bros. bought it because they had all the best gangster films.
7 [remembering the late Jacques Rivette] The news of Jacques Rivette's passing is a reminder that so much time has passed since that remarkable moment in the late '50s and early '60s when so many directors were redrawing the boundaries of cinema. Rivette was one of them. He was the most experimental of the French New Wave directors, probably the least known in those early years. I vividly remember the shock of seeing his first two films, Paris Belongs to Us (1961) and The Nun (1966). Two very different experiences, both uniquely troubling and powerful, quite unlike anything else around. Rivette was a fascinating artist, and it's strange to think that he's gone. Because if you came of age when I did, the New Wave still seems new. I suppose it always will.
8 [in a 1993 written article for "Premiere"] As a film student in New York in the early 60s, I was fortunate to be exposed too foreign ad American classics as well as B movies. I saw film as a learning process, a cross-cultural language that brought people together to share a common experience. I'm still a film student. If I'm not out making films, I'm watching them over and over, painfully aware of how much there is to learn. It would be a shame if future generations did not have the same chance.
9 Johnny Depp is one. I like him. He's unique. I don't know how he does it.
10 [on Brian De Palma] Brian took me under his wing when I went out to L.A. In the '70s, introduced me to De Niro, 'Paul Schrader' and other people, got me started. He gave me the Taxi Driver (1976) script, which he read. I once had very bad asthma, and Brian visited me in the hospital, took me home and took care of me until I got better. He is a warm, passionate, compassionate person who, I think, puts on a tough front.
11 You can't do your work according to the people's values. I'm not talking about 'following your dream,' either, I never like the inspirational value of that phrase. Dreaming is a way of trivializing the process, the obsession that carries you through the failure as well as the successes which could be harder to get through. If you're dreaming, you're sleeping. It's important and imperative to always be awake to your feelings, your possibilities, your ambitions. But you also know this, for your work, for your passions, every day is a rededication. Painters, dancers, writers, filmmakers, it's the same for all of you, all of us. Every step is a first step, every brush stroke is a test, every scene is a lesson, every shot is a school. So, let the learning continue.
12 Every time I get on an airplane, I know I'm not really an atheist. "Oh God, dear God," I say the minute the plane takes off. "I'm sorry for all my sins, please don't let this plane crash." And I keep praying out loud until the plane lands.
13 [on Boardwalk Empire (2010)] I don't have time to watch any other shows. I only watched The Sopranos (1999) once or twice. I just couldn't connect with it. I started watching Curb Your Enthusiasm (2000), that is the key one, that is when I realised you could do something on television.
14 [on death] I'm still struggling with the religious aspects of it.
15 Each film is interlocked with so many other films. You can't get away. Whatever you do now that you think is new was already done in 1913.
16 I think it's accumulated. If it's trained, it's trained from my own films. You can imagine the tension in a scene, or the warmth, or the humor. I think I know the size of the frame, and I think I know when to cut - and when not to. Somehow that comes out of the story, and the actors who are playing the parts. They determine, sometimes, whether you should move the camera or not, whether you should be in close-up, whether it should be a medium close-up. I try to translate all of that into visual terms-the feeling I'd like to get from a scene.
17 When I first went to L.A. in 1970, there was a little bit of that need in me
  • to buy into, participate in, the dream world of celebrity. It's almost as if they are like gods and goddesses - that's the impression they make on you from when you're four or five years old. That's the old story. I hear a lot of actors talk about this, where people come up to them and talk to them, and finally the actor gets mad and says, Please, leave me alone. Then the fan thinks, Well, actors are a different kind of person, and also, What do you think I am? I am a person, too.
18 The King of Comedy (1982) is my coming to terms with disappointment, disappointment with the fact that the reality is different from the dream.
19 [on 2013 release of restored The King of Comedy (1982) ] I've always been partial to comedians - the irreverence, the absurdity, the hostility, all the feelings under the surface - and to the old world of late night variety shows hosted by Steve Allen and Jack Paar and, of course, Johnny Carson, to the familiarity and the camaraderie between the guests. You had the feeling that they were there with you, in your living room.
20 [on actors he would like to work with] Johnny Depp is one. I like him. He's unique. I don't know how he does it.
21 The cinema began with a passionate relationship between celluloid and the artists and craftsmen and technicians who handled it, manipulated it, and came to know it in the way a lover comes to know every inch of the body of the beloved. No matter where the cinema goes, we cannot afford to lose sight of the beginning.
22 I have a desire to tell stories. And I'm never quite satisfied.
23 [on The Bronx Bull (2016)] At the end of Raging Bull (1980) Jake La Motta is looking in a mirror and he's at comfort with himself. He's not fighting, he's not beating himself up. That's all. So, I don't know where they're going to go. I really don't know what The Bronx Bull" would be.
24 [on Amos Vogel] If you're looking for the origin of film culture in America, look no further than Amos Vogel. Amos opened the doors to every possibility in film viewing, film exhibition, film curating, film appreciation.
25 [in 2011, on his legacy] I don't know if there is any. Maybe a part of me wants there to be, if I'm being brutally honest, but the reality is it's a different experience now, cinema. Young people perceive the world and information in a completely different way to when I was growing up. So what I did in the past, I don't know how they'll see that in the future and if it will mean anything to them. I hope the scripts for Taxi Driver (1976), or Mean Streets (1973), or Raging Bull (1980) or any of these things, will have some resonance in the future for other people, if they see them at all. Things fall out of favor, out of fashion. I have no idea. All I can do is hope to get to make another one.
26 [on Hugo (2011)] I've always loved 3D, going back to stereoscopic images - devices used in the Victorian period. When 3D was first used in my time, in 1953, I was so excited by it. I was talking to Elia Suleiman, the great Palestinian filmmaker. I said that I was very excited about the use of 3D. He pointed out that, if you do use 3D, it had to be there in the script. With Hugo, I felt that it was.
27 When I get frustrated with the commercial playing field of feature films, I go to these [music documentary] movies. I have had the need, more and more, to explore the spiritual or religious. Elements of that find their way into my music films. Music is for me the purest art form. There's a transcendent power to it, to all kinds, to rock 'n' roll. It takes you to another world, you feel it in your body, you feel a change come over you and a desire to live. That's transcendence.
28 There is an essence to the project that you must protect. You cannot make concessions on that, the story cannot be tampered with past that point; you have to fight off every power or force around you.
29 I was never interested in the accumulation of money, you know. And I never had a mind for business. There have been serious issues with money over the years. I have a nice house now, in New York. But there have been major, major issues. In the mid-'80s it was pathetic, I mean, my father would help me out. I couldn't go out, I couldn't buy anything. But it's all my own doing.
30 There are two kinds of power you have to fight. The first is the money, and that's just our system. The other is the people close around you, knowing when to accept their criticism, knowing when to say no.
31 There was always a part of me that wanted to be an old-time director. But I couldn't do that. I'm not a pro.
32 I'm concerned about a culture where everything is immediate and then discarded. I'm exposing [12-year-old daughter Francesca] to stuff like musicals and Ray Harryhausen spectaculars, Frank Capra films. I just read her a children's version of "The Iliad". I wanted her to know where it all comes from. Every story, I told her, every story is in here, "The Iliad". Three months ago, I had a screening here for the family. Francesca had responded to Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936), and to Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), so I decided to try It Happened One Night (1934). I had kind of dismissed the film, which some critics love, of course, but then I realized I had only seen it on a small screen, on television. So I got a 35mm print in here, and we screened it. And I discovered it was a masterpiece. The way [Claudette Colbert] and [Clark Gable] move, their body language. It's really quite remarkable!
33 At this point, I find that the excitement of a young student or filmmaker can get me excited again. I like showing them things and seeing how their minds open up, seeing the way their response then gets expressed in their own work. (2011)
34 I think it's certainly interesting that what's happening now, in the past nine or ten years, particularly at HBO, was what we had hoped for in the mid-'60s when films were being made for television. We hoped that there would be this kind of freedom, the ability to create another world and develop character in a long-form story and narrative. That didn't happen in the '70s and '80s with television. This is a good example, and HBO has really been the trail-blazer in this, with the extraordinary series that they've had. I've been tempted, over the years, to be involved in one of them because of the nature of the long-form and the development of character and plot. So many of their other series that have been made are thoughtful, intelligent and brilliantly put together. It's a new opportunity for story-telling, which is very different from television in the past. This was my inroad.
35 [on film preservation] Film is history. With every foot of film that is lost, we lose a link to our culture, to the world around us, to each other and to ourselves.
36 I'm not a Hollywood director. I'm an in-spite-of-Hollywood director.
37 [on black and white films]: Black and white is never really black and white. It's shades of grey.
38 [on making Boardwalk Empire (2010), set in the 1920s]: To me, it's as if we're talking now about the 1980s or late 1970s. That was like yesterday to me. The 20s in my head were always very present because my parents always referred to it: the music, the people, the clothes. I know all the songs from that period; I know all the films. We knew it all. And so it was a natural transition. But you know I really was fascinated with the idea of working with Terry Winter and these guys, and taking these characters over 13 hours, developing them, developing their story, the complications of corruption in American politics.
39 Boardwalk Empire (2010) is made for what I guess you would call the small screen. But we made it like a film; an epic B-film in a way. And you know what? Those small screens aren't that small any more!
40 A friend of mine sent me that line ["All this filming isn't healthy"] on a note when we were making Raging Bull (1980)! I think it was one of the cinematographers who had just seen Peeping Tom (1960). And there is no doubt that [filmmaking] is aggressive and it could be something that is not very healthy. When you make a film... there are times in your life when you're burning with a passion and it's very, very strong. It's almost like a pathology of cinema where you want to possess the people on film. You want to live through them. You want to possess their spirits, their souls, in a way. And ultimately you can't stop. It has to be done until you get to the bitter end. You're exhausted. In some cases friends might have died, in some cases they don't come back, in some cases they can't make another picture. The only thing to do is try to make another picture. It's got to be done again. Now, I don't mean to sound dramatic, a lot of great films are made that way. And we might not only be talking about cinema here. We could be talking about other things, too. I would think that it might apply to other art forms. But I must say, that with that passion and that power, there is pathology in wanting to live vicariously through the people.
41 Well, I think in my own work the subject matter usually deals with characters I know, aspects of myself, friends of mine - that sort of thing. And we try to work it out. By 'work it out' I mean almost like 'work it through your system'. Particularly, I think, on films like Mean Streets (1973), or Taxi Driver (1976) from 'Paul Schrader''s script. And Raging Bull (1980), especially. At the end of that film, Robert De Niro was fine, but me - I left Jake LaMotta's character more at peace with himself than I was with myself. And I was hoping to get to that moment that he was at the end of the film. That moment where he's looking at himself in the mirror. I was hoping to get there myself. But I hadn't made it. So it's a matter of living through the cinema I think.
42 I think I was eight years old when I first saw Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's The Red Shoes (1948) and it had a very strong impact on me for many reasons: the nature of the storytelling; the images; the editing; the camera movements; the use of music - and the color. And then I saw Stairway to Heaven (1946) on a black-and-white television, and Hour of Glory (1949), again on TV, one afternoon when I was home sick from school. In New York, there was a television show called the Million Dollar Movie, which would show a film twice a night for a week. And so one week it would be Citizen Kane (1941). Edited. With commercials. And with the "News on the March" sequence missing. Ha! That was the first time I'd ever seen it! Then, you know, you'd get The Third Man (1949), with half the film cut out. But one of the films they showed was Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's The Tales of Hoffmann (1951). And it was cut down to about an hour and 40 minutes or so, black-and-white, with commercials. And it had a quality like "The Red Shoes"--a darkness, and a humor. But what was so interesting to me was the way the camera moved with the music. And the sense of editing. I lived in a tenement with my mother and father and my brother at the time, and if that film was on twice a night, I'd have to keep watching it. At certain point, my mother would ask: "Is it necessary to watch that again?"
43 [The colors of my childhood were inflected by the gaudy hues of Eastmancolor which were] very powerful, very strong and very lurid, and kind of violent in a way. What I saw growing up were those colors, when there was color. Normally, it was all hallways with single light bulbs; it was mainly black-and-white in a way. But when it was color, it was harsh, strong; some would say lurid. My formative years were in the '50s, when you had all those popular novels with paperback covers, and films like Raoul Walsh's Battle Cry (1955) were just splashed all over the consciousness of popular culture.
44 [I remember the] curiosity and sense of completion [that drove me to seek out hard-to-find films in his youth, and the undeniable fetishism of film which underwrote that all-consuming passion.] It's interesting because the fetish ideas are all there in Peeping Tom (1960). All the elements: the projector is correct; the lenses are right; the sprockets are correct. Even the sounds of the sprockets are correct. You do... There is a point in time, many times over the years... where I've loved to hear the sound of film going through a projector. And I could tell you if it's 35mm or 16mm, you know. Now that's gone, of course... but there's a certain kind of... it's like going into a trance almost, or I should say a "meditation" of some kind. It depends what you do with it. And it has to come out other ways. For me, it was burning to be able to express myself with cinema, and to be inspired by films.
45 I've always liked 3D. I mean, we're sitting here in 3D. We are in 3D. We see in 3D. So why not?
46 [Hugo (2011)] really the story of a little boy. But he does become friends with the older Georges Méliès who was discovered in 1927, or 1928, working in a toy store, completely bankrupt. And then he was revived in a way, with a beautiful gala in 1928, in Paris. And in my film, the cinema itself is the connection - the automaton, the machine itself becomes the emotional connection between the boy, his father, Méliès, and his family. It's about how it all comes together, how people express themselves using the technology emotionally and psychologically. It's the connection between the people, and the thing that's missing - how it supplies what's missing.
47 Every shot [while making Hugo (2011) in 3D] is rethinking cinema, rethinking narrative - how to tell a story with a picture. Now, I'm not saying we have to keep throwing javelins at the camera, I'm not saying we use it as a gimmick, but it's liberating. It's literally a Rubik's Cube every time you go out to design a shot, and work out a camera move, or a crane move. But it has a beauty to it also. People look like... like moving statues. They move like sculpture, as if sculpture is moving in a way. Like dancers...
48 A painting can't turn. If you look closely at some of the portraits from cubism at the time, you'll find a portrait of a woman that is really a projector.
49 Very often I've known people who wouldn't say a word to each other, but they'd go to see movies together and experience life that way.
50 [on casting Ray Liotta as Henry Hill in Goodfellas (1990)] I'd seen Ray in Something Wild (1986), Jonathan Demme's film; I really liked him. And then I met him. I was walking across the lobby of the hotel on the Lido that houses the Venice Film Festival, and I was there with The Last Temptation of Christ (1988). I had a lot of bodyguards around me. Ray approached me in the lobby and the bodyguards moved toward him, and he had an interesting way of reacting, which was he held his ground, but made them understand he was no threat. I liked his behavior at that moment, and I saw, Oh, he understands that kind of situation. That's something you wouldn't have to explain to him.
51 L'Avventura (1960) gave me one of the most profound shocks I've ever had at the movies, greater even than Breathless (1960) or Hiroshima Mon Amour (1959). Or La Dolce Vita (1960). At the time there were two camps, the people who liked the [Federico Fellini] film and the ones who liked "L'Avventura". I knew I was firmly on [Michelangelo Antonioni's side of the line, but if you'd asked me at the time, I'm not sure I would have been able to explain why. I loved Fellini's pictures and I admired "La Dolce Vita", but I was challenged by "L'Avventura". Fellini's film moved me and entertained me, but Antonioni's film changed my perception of cinema, and the world around me, and made both seem limitless. I was mesmerized by "L'Avventura" and by Antonioni's subsequent films, and it was the fact that they were unresolved in any conventional sense that kept drawing me back. They posed mysterie--or rather the mystery, of who we are, what we are, to each other, to ourselves, to time. You could say that Antonioni was looking directly at the mysteries of the soul. That's why I kept going back. I wanted to keep experiencing these pictures, wandering through them. I still do.
52 I considered it a true cinematic challenge of working with a versatile actor such as Robert De Niro, who moulds himself according to each character. The only other actor who matches his histrionic ability is Al Pacino.
53 The Color of Money (1986) was deep-rooted in social concern about the effect money has on the upper class. The billiards game in the film was a symbol depicting society. I very much liked Paul Newman in The Hustler (1961), and thought of repeating him in a character with more mature shades. He scored with his brilliant underplaying, winning an Oscar. He was very cooperative with newcomer Tom Cruise, who showed promise. In fact, the whistling tone in the film titles was Newman's idea. He was one of those actors who made method acting spontaneous, and his emerald eyes spoke volumes.
54 Movies touch our hearts and awaken our vision, and change the way we see things. They take us to other places, they open doors and minds. Movies are the memories of our life time, we need to keep them alive.
55 When I did The Age of Innocence (1993), the critics said, "Is it wrong to expect a little more heat from Scorsese?" I thought "Age of Innocence" was pretty hot. So I said, "Alright, I'll do Casino (1995)," and they said, "Well, gee, it's the same as Goodfellas (1990)." You can't win. Yes, "Casino" has the style of "Goodfellas", but it has more to do with America and even Hollywood--the idea of never being satisfied.
56 [on Leonardo DiCaprio] Leo has a similar sensibility to me. I'm 30 years older than him, but I think we see the world the same way, meaning he feels comfortable with the characters I've dealt with over the years in movies. But also with Leo it's always an interesting process of discovery. And I don't say that in a facile way either, because we never know what that process is going to be, and it's always intimidating at first. And then Leo really gets into it and we start unravelling all these layers. With Shutter Island (2010) the story really lent itself to that.
57 [on Akira Kurosawa] The term "giant" is used too often to describe artists. But in the case of Akira Kurosawa, we have one of the rare instances where the term fits.
58 [on Akira Kurosawa] His influence on filmmakers throughout the entire world is so profound as to be almost incomparable,.
59 [on Robert De Niro] I've come to know De Niro fairly well down the years. He's a very compassionate man. He's basically a very good man and you can see that in him. So he can take on characters that are pretty disturbing and make them human because of that compassion. It's taken me years to figure it out. He has an ability to make audiences feel empathy for very difficult characters because there is something very decent in him.
60 I can't take shooting any scene for granted. I just can't. The moment I do that, I have no idea what I'm doing. "Oh, that'll be easy, I'll do that in five minutes." Believe me, that never happens.
61 It's hilarious, the problems that arise when you're on the set. It's really funny because you make a complete fool of yourself. I think I know how to use dissolves, the grammar of cinema. But there's only one place for the camera. That's the right place. Where is the right place? I don't know. You get there somehow.
62 [on Kathryn Bigelow] I've always been a fan of hers, over the years... Blue Steel (1990)... She's good, she's really good.
63 But once Haig Manoogian started talking about film, I realized that I could put that passion into movies, and then I realized that the Catholic vocation was, in a sense, through the screen for me.
64 [on Stanley Kubrick] Why does something stay with you for so many years? It's really a person with a very powerful storytelling ability. A talent... a genius, who could create a solid rock image that has conviction.
65 [on Stanley Kubrick] One of his films... is equivalent to ten of somebody else's. Watching a Kubrick film is like gazing up at a mountain top. You look up and wonder, "How could anyone have climbed that high?".
66 [on working with Liza Minnelli on New York, New York (1977)] After 15 minutes, I realized that not only could she sing she could be one hell of an actress. She's so malleable and inventive. And fun, even when things are hard.
67 [on Robert De Niro] And even now I still know of nobody who can surprise me on the screen the way he does -- and did then. No actor comes to mind who can provide such power and excitement.
68 [on The Departed (2006)] It's the only movie of mine with a plot.
69 [onstage at the 2007 Oscars after winning for Best Director] Could you double-check the envelope?
70 Cinema is a matter of what's in the frame and what's out.
71 What does it take to be a filmmaker in Hollywood? Even today I still wonder what it takes to be a professional or even an artist in Hollywood. How do you survive the constant tug of war between personal expression and commercial imperatives? What is the price you pay to work in Hollywood? Do you end up with a split personality? Do you make one movie for them, one for yourself?
72 [on the Iraq war] There are a lot of Americans who also feel that a lot of this war talk is economic, part of this has to do with the oil. I think it really has to come down to respecting how other people live. There's got to be ways this can be worked out diplomatically, there simply has to be.
73 [on political correctness] You can hardly say anything about minorities now. It has made it extremely difficult to open your mouth.
74 [on the Iraq war] One hopes that this kind of war can be done diplomatically, with intelligence rather than wiping out a lot of innocent civilians.
75 I'm a lapsed Catholic. But I am Roman Catholic - there's no way out of it.
76 There is no such thing as pointless violence. City of God (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.
77 My whole life has been movies and religion. That's it. Nothing else.
78 I prefer celluloid - there's no doubt about it. Yet I know that if I was starting to make movies now, as a young person, if I could get my hands on a DV camera, I probably would have started that way... There's no doubt I'm an older advocate of pure celluloid, but ultimately I see it going by the wayside, except in museums, and even then it could be a problem.
79 It probably is better I didn't win in the '70s or mid-'80s or something. My view on making films is somewhat different in a way, and I think maybe it's something that... I was not able to handle at the time... Had I gotten an Oscar, maybe I would have gotten maybe an extra two days shooting, maybe a couple, you know what I'm saying?
80 If I continue to make films about New York, they will probably be set in the past. The "new" New York I don't know much about. It's not that I'm against contemporary film. I'm open to it in general, but I find the new colors of the city, the new Times Square, kind of shocking. I guess I'm stuck in a time warp.
81 I'm in a different chapter of my life. As time goes by and I grow older, I find that I need to just be quiet and think. There have been periods when I've locked myself away for days, but now it's different - I'm married and we have a daughter who is in my office the whole time.
82 I think a lot of it has to do with the nature of the community. I've lived here in Los Angeles, but I'm more of a New Yorker, and the nature of my films is regarded as somewhat violent and the language is considered tough. As you grow older, you change. I make different films now. You don't make pictures for Oscars.
83 Basically, you make another movie, and another, and hopefully you feel good about every picture you make. And you say, "My name is on that. I did that. It's okay." But don't get me wrong, I still get excited by it all. That, I hope, will never disappear.
84 I think when you're young and have that first burst of energy and make five or six pictures in a row that tell the stories of all the things in life you want to say... well, maybe those are the films that should have won me the Oscar. When Taxi Driver (1976) was up for Best Picture, it got three other nominations: Best Actor [Robert De Niro], Best Supporting Actress [Jodie Foster] and Best Music. But the director and writer were overlooked. I was so disappointed, I said, "You know what? That's the way it's going to be." What was I going to do, go home and cry?
85 It seems to me that any sensible person must see that violence does not change the world and if it does, then only temporarily.
86 [on Raging Bull (1980)]: Robert De Niro wanted to make this film. Not me. I don't understand anything about boxing. For me, it's like a physical game of chess.
87 Because of the movies I make, people get nervous, because they think of me as difficult and angry. I am difficult and angry, but they don't expect a sense of humor. And the only thing that gets me through is a sense of humor.
88 [on sports] Anything with a ball, no good.
89 The only person who has the right attitude about boxing in the movies for me was Buster Keaton.
