Martin Scorsese is one of my favorite directors. He is born in Queens, New York. Some of his movies have New York as setting. I write about him in this challenge because I love many of his movies. They vary from gangster themed movies to drama and history. Robert de Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio are Scorsese’s muses. Is this a coincidence that those three are Americans with Italian roots? I don’t know. What I know is their cooperation results in amazing movies. Scorsese’s works are controversial, shocking and provoking.
