Martin Scorsese can’t make movies like a Hollywood filmmaker


Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese says he does not think he could make it as a “Hollywood filmmaker” because his success comes from making movies “in the margins”. Scorsese feels like a “thief” with his success because he has “got away with” making movies that were influenced by his upbringing in New York’s Lower East Side, reported Female First.

“I kind of look back now and I say after all these years, ‘I couldn’t make it as a Hollywood movie maker’. I was almost a thief who got away with making these movies in the margins of the book. Some were more in a marketable range…. Others are not. I found I could only really get excited about stories that I wanted to tell and they seem to be more internal and personal,” Scorsese said.
