Director of classics

The Italian mafia often plays a prominent role, with debt and retaliation being a recurring theme, as well as violence and the search for spirituality. Scorsese creates characters riddled with fear, betrayal and doubt, often portrayed by star actors like Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio.
