Happy Birthday to Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese, American Film Director

Today is the birthday of Academy Award-winning director Martin Marcantonio Luciano Scorsese (born November 17, 1942). Someone I know once mentioned that the test of a great film is that if you catch it in the middle playing on TV that you’ll sit down and watch the movie to the very end even though you’ve seen it time after time before, and Scorsese always comes to mind when I think about that. Most people think of him for his more gritty films like Raging Bull and Goodfellas, but what’s amazing about Scorsese is also his music documentary work like The Last Waltz and No Direction Home. Also as a fanboy I love the fact that he’s also been so involved in film preservation. Happy Birthday Marty!
