Scorsese on set

If you don’t like Martin Scorsese you don’t like movies. Not our words, but those of Robert De Niro and he knows a thing or too about the moving pictures business. Ok, they’re our words – we thought using De Niro would add gravitas.

In truth, there’s no need to embellish Martin Marcantonio Luciano Scorsese. His films, from his gritty and breathtaking early work – Mean Streets and Taxi Driver – his grand middle – Raging Bull, The King of Comedy and Goodfellas - and his ascent into filmmaking elder statesman – The Departed and Shutter Island – are all marked by fulsome touches of genius.

What better reason then to have a look at the great master at work.

Pictures: Rex Features, Corbis
