Battle of the Martin Scorsese Films:
Gangs of New York (2002) vs. The Aviator (2004) vs. The Departed (2006) vs. Shutter Island (2010) vs. The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)
Shutter Island | Two versions of what the film means could hardly be more at odds. Yet Scorsese hasn’t chosen to indicate which is the right one. Nor has DiCaprio. Perhaps the latter isn’t sure himself. He found his role traumatising, and told an interviewer: ‘I remember saying to Marty, ‘I have no idea where I am or what I’m doing.” Martin Scorsese said this film will make double the income because people will have to see it a second time to understand what happened the first time.
“Leonardo and I have worked together on four pictures now. It’s been one of the great adventures of my career. He is absolutely essential to me, to all of us, and essential to the history of movies.” - Martin Scorsese
