What Makes Martin Scorsese the Best Director of all Time

The world of cinema is not something conventional. The projected stories are the vision of certain people who can speak from the dreamiest to the most real, and there is no gender preference as the story immerses the viewer to a journey that engages him throughout the film.

When we talk about Martin Scorsese we name one of the great directors of Hollywood. Scorsese’s films date back to the 1960s, and to date have more than 20 films and 12 documentaries, so it is interesting to review the work of one of the most influential directors in Western Cinema.

What makes him Special?

Scorsese always relied on people he can not only trust, but also have likes similar to his own on a personal level, and concerns about carrying out projects that show something new, unique to the viewer. Scorsese builds his entire discourse, the whole adventure, around key pieces of cinema.

He is a talented director, and especially of actors. Getting the best of DiCaprio, or De Niro only after a few films, is worthy of a veteran director, who connects with the story, what he needs to have and with the actor selected to do it.

Scorsese, a director of considerable age, had chosen, as he himself said, to abandon large-scale blockbusters, and to dedicate himself to a smaller but more personal budget. He is well known for his risky approach on different genres and that is almost a stigma when it comes to other cotemporary directors in Hollywood. He is able to get into various genres and it has really moved the audience the way he did it.

The life of boxer Jake La Motta in black and white is one of the best boxing films ever, not only because of its incredible scenes where sweat, blood and mist take on a special meaning under a monochrome filter, but through history that relates and distances itself so much of the sport that turns to this film in a dissection of several histories in the same personage.

Conclusion:

Martin Scorsese is one of the best directors, screenwriters, and producers in the history of cinema. When Martin releases a tape, one always expects the best, why it is obvious, this guy has left us at least twenty films of forced viewing and more than five masterpieces. 

He knows how to bring the story to the forefront. His creative work include risky and experimental titles, but also super classic and solid productions. He is a true artist who knows how to communicate his own vision of the world, and he does it in such a way that, although his films are long lasting, the public loses the notion of time and ends up desiring that the story continues.
