“Our Hearts belong to Marty”
by Mark A. Wilson


If longevity and versatility can be the hallmarks of creative genius,then Martin Scorsese should be considered one of Hollywood’s greatest genius’.

From the raw cinematic power and gritty realism he used to evoke the life of a professional boxer in Raging Bull (1980) to the refined elegance and poignant suffering of two frustrated lovers caught in the web of upper class hypocrisy in 1870’s New York City, which he brilliantly depicted in “The Age of Innocence” (1991). Scorsese has shown a rare and uncanny ability to draw us into the lives and times of his characters.

Perhaps Scorsese’ greatest talent, and one which has eluded most other Hollywood directors, is his ability to bring to life the sites, sounds, indeed the very feelings of past historic eras. For instance,in his epic film about the early days of gang violence in America, “The Gangs of New York”,(2002), he re-creates the dirt, disease and vermin of New York’s 19th century slums as the backdrop for a titanic battle of wills and struggle for survival between his two major protagonists, portrayed with palpable intensity by Daniel Day-Lewis and Leonardo DiCaprio.

In his current film tour-de-force, about the pioneering entrepreneur Howard Hughes, “The Aviator”, (2004), Scorsese makes us feel the personal and professional triumphs as well as the tragedies that Hughes experienced during his mercurial and enigmatic life.

This film received a rare honor of eleven Academy Award nominations and it’s apparent to his millions of devotees over the past thirty years, that this recognition of his unique talent by his peers is long overdue.
