Legendary Hollywood filmmaker Martin Scorsese celebrates his birthday on November 17 and has turned 78 this year. The director is known for creating blockbusters with leading stars in Hollywood. His frequent collaboration with Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio has turned out to be the best combinations in the world. Moreover, Martin’s movies from the 70s namely Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The King of Comedy and Goodfellas are considered as the greatest of all times.
Now, on the occasion of Martin’s birthday, The Quint interacted with him wherein the filmmaker spoke at length about his love for India. While talking about his first impression on his first visit to the country, Scorsese told the portal, “I have never experienced such a change. The first reaction was, of course, that this is all quite wonderful and remarkable. In the course of my drive from Jammu to Dharamshala, I caught glimpses of village life: people appear to be so resilient and strong, quite unlike the way of life you see in the US, where it’s hurry-hurry-hurry-make-a-quick-buck.”
The Hugo helmer further shared, “Of course, I’ve been somewhat familiar with images of India, thanks to the films of Satyajit Ray and Jean Renoir’s The River. But this was the first time I was seeing the great Indian spirit of humanism, patience and acceptance upfront, and not through a camera lens.”
Martin concluded by stating, “The tradition of looking within yourself in India is something that we Americans could use. There is the ongoing danger of becoming one big theme-park. Las Vegas is a park where even children can throw dice. You can’t give these habits like drinking and smoking a moral sanction for children. It’s up to them to make a choice when they grow up.”
