- Martin Scorsese
Even without seeing a single Scorsese movie, it's impossible to miss his passion for motion pictures. A preservationist, an advocate, a teacher and a missionary, no person has been more vocal about film and film history than Martin Scorsese. This sensibility is reflected in his many movies as well, exhibiting a disdain for digital video and computerized effects, instead focusing on mise-en-scene and the craft of acting. Improbably, after crafting such masterpieces as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas, he made possibly his best film to date (and won his first Oscar®) at age 64 for The Departed.
