One of the prime livings icons of American commercial auteur cinema, who made a name for himself directing character dramas and crime films. I'm not a fan of Scorsese's work, but he made so many classics that his oeuvre is impossible to ignore.

The Irishman poster

It's a little ironic that Scorsese spent so much time digitally de-aging his actor, but forgot to do the same to his actual film. The Irishman feels like a relic of the past, a film that got stuck in the early 90s, just like its director. Not one second does it warrant its 3.5 hour runtime, not one moment did I feel like watching something special of worthwhile.

Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese poster

Scorsese's second Bob Dylan-based documentary. Only interesting for fans of Dylan and/or of bygone eras. Scorsese hardly cuts in the performances and the talking heads don't have much interesting to add. The fact that are some hidden faux documentary bits doesn't improve things at all. A terrible doc.

The Age of Innocence poster

Scorsese doing costume drama. The result is a sludgy and overworked affair that brings nothing new to the table and takes way too long to get its point across. The voice over slows things down even further and some questionable performances are the cherry on the cake. Another Scorsese fluke, I'm still on the lookout for that one film that might redeem this man's work.

Not a big Scorsese fan, but this must be one of his absolute worst. A cheesy and overwrought adaptation of Jesus' final days. I'm afraid I've had it with purely religious films, the gravitas and weight Scorsese put in here almost feels like a parody of the real thing. No doubt this was a serious struggle for the director, but it sure was one for me too.
