If You Don't Succeed, Try Try Try Try Try Try Try Again!
Martin Scorsese is one of the most accomplished directors of his generation. Oscar nominations for Raging Bull, The Last Temptation of Christ, Goodfellas (2), The Age of Innocence, Gangs of New York, The Aviator, and finally The Departed. Which finally won him a coveted golden statuette. That does not even include some of his other famous works: Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, After Hours, The Color of Money, Cape Fear, and Kundun. The list goes on and on - and so does Scorsese's curiosity, which brings him back again and again to project material that infuses the historical influences of his craft into a contribution to the profession of filmmaking.
A small tribute to a man who should influence creative types in any media that the passion that drives someone to perfect his craft should be more than enough for pursuing the dreams of artistic expression. For the first time, Martin Scorsese scaled the heights of his profession - but it is somewhere he has often been, outside of industry accolades.
