Awesome Infographic: The Astoundingly Versatile Martin Scorsese


When we think about the films of Martin Scorsese, a few key words come to mind: gritty, dark, New York City, gangsters. But, as the fantastic infographic above — published by Fast Company as part of a great profile of the filmmaker — reminds us, Scorsese has actually mastered multiple genres and moods over the course of four decades as a major director. He’s still one of the best music documentarians, with a filmography spanning from The Last Waltz to this year’s George Harrison: Living in the Material World. Scorsese has even explored religion, in The Last Temptation of Christ and Kundun. And, of course, his just-released, ecstatically reviewed Hugo represents two firsts for the filmmaker, who had never before made either a 3D or a kid’s movie. [via Slashfilm]
