“Are the days of Scorsese shaking up film culture over? In an interview, Quentin Tarantino intimated as much, calling Scorsese’s films “geriatric” and stating, “I really do think directing is a young man’s game.” David Thomson, in The New Biographical Dictionary of Film, sniffed at the “greatest director” designation and hinted at unfulfilled promise: “Scorsese’s may be the greatest biography in American film since that of Welles. And the most painful.”“
