What a great read. He could easily live another 15 years and maybe more, but when that comes he will be sorely missed. I can’t think of anyone who has given more to the movie industry and the art and lifeline of film then him. Very few Hollywood directors have been active in their later years, let alone as prolific as Scorsese. It reminds me of a Q&A of Kundun I attended at it’s release time. He was taking questions from the audience, which were industry people. It was a DGA event. An older gentleman asked him, “wasn’t it hard and difficult for you at your age.” Scorsese looked incredulous at the man, answered his almost insulting question with “no, that’s what I do.”

Clearly his Italian American Catholic upbringing (I can relate) helps put into a sort of focus and meaning to what his life is and was and will be when mortality is around the corner. And by the way, nothing wrong with that.

I don’t love everything he’s done but I respect the shit out of all he’s done.

Independent of my own feelings on the film it's fascinating that for something these individuals seem to want to dismiss so readily as pernicious Joker sure seems to exist rent free in their heads. Of all the things to take from this interview it boggles my mind that his discussion of mortality isn't endlessly more interesting thing to talk about.

Sounds like some renewed consideration of their treatment of the Fox catalog could come out of it, though. Scorsese's smart to be taking the meeting, despite how insulting it is.

Scorsese now has the second most Academy nominations for Best Director with nine, behind only William Wyler's twelve.
