After seeing The Irishman, Scorsese can say anything he wants about Marvel movies.
Three and a half hours long, but wished it was longer.

Studios were worried about the names? Deniro and Pacino??? Are studios run by 19 year olds now?

Joe Pesci was phenomenal, he deserves a best supporting Oscar for his performance in this film.
The Irishman is such a mournful eulogy to the gangster genre. What a moving portrayal of guilt, loneliness, regret, mortality, and the consequences of a crime-filled life on everyone in its periphery. The last hour is one of Scorsese's finest moments and that final shot will stay with me forever
Stay healthy Marty and keep pumping out those masterpieces. There's no one out there who's close to you.

Martin Scorsese has been consistent with his movies unlike his colleagues who lost it with time.

The people that were mad at Scorsese for his Marvel movie comment have obviously never seen one of his films. Just watch Raging Bull and get back to me. It’s a masterpiece 👏🏻
I love how Scorsese is powerful enough to trigger the whole MCU fandom by one simple comment.

He didn't even insult those movies lol, just described them as what they truly are.

The Studio actually said "Who wants to see a film like this" who wants to see Deniro, Pacino, Pesci, Kietel, Hmm...EVERYBODY!! The studios are only interested in Blockbuster's for kids & teens which is why many people rarely go to the Movies. I love Netflix. Streaming is the End of the Studio system

I love this man. I highly recommend his 1995 documentary "A Personal Journey With Martin Scorsese Through American Movies." The best film about film that I've ever seen.

Marvel can go cry in the bathroom. The Irishman is a powerful piece of cinema that will resonate for decades to come.

When Joe Pesci finally said yes to The Irishman.
I just get the feeling it was like in The GF III when Michael says, "Just when I thought I was out... They pull me back in!"

All the actors were great, but Joe Pesci again stole the show. He was absolutely magnificent.
I never felt like I was watching a movie when watching this man’s products. I felt like I just opened the window and looked outside. It’s real. It’s honest.

It’s been two days since I saw The Irishman in theaters, and the more I think about it, the more I love it! Probably the best mob movie since Goodfellas and Casino!

Greatest living American film director.
Bar none.
Not even close.
I just watched The Irishman yesterday, and it is totally what cinema needs now. What an amazing piece of art. His attention to detail in his movies is beyond, and this one doesn't disappoint. This will hopefully be up for many, many awards. I hope Pesci gets another nomination, at least, he was amazing. De Niro was like we haven't seen in years. These guys acting, producing and directing a movie like this into their late 70s - early 80s proves that age is just a number.
I tricked my cousin into seeing this film by telling him the Irishman was a superhero who was kinda like Ireland's Captain America.

This isn’t the interview I deserve but the interview I needed, I saw The Irishman in theatres a couple of weeks ago. It may be my favourite movie of the decade, it’s only competition is Blade Runner 2049.

Pesci really outshined everyone for me in this movie seeing him go from the usual hotheaded psychopathic mobster to a cool and collected boss it was truly the best movie I've seen this year besides Joker well fucking done Marty
John Rigs
John Rigs:
There are very few directors in the history of film who have remained at this elite level for almost 50 years the way Martin Scorsese has.
To make a movie like The Irishman-which is as good as any film he has ever made- at his age is just staggering.
He’s like some kind of supernatural force of the Cinema.
I watched The Irishman last night. I broke down and cried during the last few scenes. Anyone who has had to see their parents go into a nursing home and pass surely understands. My father is gone. My mother is still there. I see her everyday. Every time I leave her room she always reminds me to leave the door open a little, no more than halfway though. So you did it again to me, and for me Mr. Scorsese. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

do we have any theatres left for a movie? cracked me up
Imagine Scorsese having to beg people to sit still and watch his movies without touching their phones. What a world we live in now, where tiny gerbils have to have their dopamine hit every two minutes. I don't think I even blinked when I first saw Raging Bull or Goodfellas in the theatre. Attention spans be gone!
The way Martin Scorsese laugh : Hiak hak hak hak hak...

I'd go for these kinds of interviews over Jimmy Kimmel or Fallon any day.
“.... if you wanna see one of my pictures.” Marty’s so old school in the most respectful way, that sounded like something from another era lol
They really said that "at this time who really wants to see deniro and pacino". That makes my blood boil
"It's here where you show all the Marvel films..."

That was pretty good.
I always thought Goodfellas was a flawless film, everything about it in terms of the film maker is just so perfect to me, must’ve seen it 30 times

I love the way he talks about his recent and past films. He sounds almost like he’s a fan watching from the outside. Awesome admiration for his own work that comes no where near being full of himself.
King of comedy and after hours are definitely the most underated films that marty has made.

Finally an interview that is not like all the other interviews with Scorsese lately. Great interview !
He's done so well in all these interviews with being kind about his opinion of superhero movies. He clearly hates them and wants to trash them lol

18:35 what is *cinema* according to Martin?
I agree with him 110% .
Films I've seen as a child, and again when I was older sometimes seem or feel different. But the film isn't different . I'm different, and my interpretation of the film is. What a beautiful, profound and precise answer.❤👏🤔

I would have funded this movie immediately if I had hundreds of millions in the bank. If Marty pitches a film in which he is personally invested in, you don’t turn him down!

His existence, his every breath, every thought that comes out of his gorgeously creative mind is riveting. Cant articulate how transcendent the beauty of the great man's craft is in this second language of language of mine. Only he can create a tangibly physical urge in me to want to share everything he creates with the ones I love. Just fortunate to be alive to be able to do it.

Brilliant and hilarious interview. I WISH Peter had asked whether a Blu Ray release or remastered version would come for Bringing Out The Dead.

One can only hope they will be this quick in a conversation in their mid 70s. Wow.

Sad that ALL of the attention is to DeNiro and Scorsese reuniting after 29 years, or Pacino and Scorsese making their first film together: Pesci and Pacino made their first film together with this film. Keitel and Pesci made their first film together with this film. Keitel and Scorsese made their first film together since 1989 with this film. Keitel AND Pacino made their first film together with this film. AND the kicker?!? It’s a GREAT film. It has all of these firsts, AND it’s a classic. This isn’t merely rare art, it’s great art.
Bringing Out the Dead's possibly my favorite Scorsese movie.

I saw this movie about 4 days ago and I'm still thinking about it. It seems to have grown on me even more since then. I believe that's a good sign that it's a timeless classic. This one should sweep the Oscars. Well done all involved.
Y'all catch the Marvel joke lol that was a good one

These legends didn’t lose any of their edge and charisma even in their 70’s. Just as entertaining as any of their films in their prime
I agree with Marty, Marvel films are stupid that resemble more of a Saturday morning cartoon

I find it funny and sad how Martin clarifies his words on Marvel and completely makes sense - Whilst Coppola is left behind looking like a complete jerk.

I will never ever pay to see a Marvel or DC comic book movie again, the last one was ...actually I can’t recall, but that’s a good thing. And I was an avid comic book reader as a kid.
Omg !!! I cannot wait to see this film.
Also I would give anything if Joaquin Phoenix could do something special with Martin Scorsese !!!!! 👍🏼
