Martin Scorsese is a legend in Hollywood. You have seen at least ONE of his movies. Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, The Departed just to name a few. If Hollywood had it’s own Hall of Fame, he would have his own wing. At a recent Q&A at the Marrakech Film Festival, somebody asked what the future holds and what desires the director has for the future:
“Desire? Yes, I have the desire to make many films, but as of now I’m 71 and there’s only a couple more left if I get to make them. I miss the time when I had the desire to experiment and try different kinds of films, I miss that time, but that’s done, it’s over. There is obligation as you get older, you have family. I’ve been very lucky in the last 10 years or so, to have found projects that combine the desire, the subject matter—from “The Aviator” to now—with, as best I can, fulfilling the obligation to my family and the financiers.”
Let’s hope that it isn’t anytime soon, but we all know that day will come. Judging from The Wolf of Wall Street, the director still has what it takes to make a classic film.
