Martin Scorsese laments one of his many collaborations with Leonardo DiCaprio in a meaningful talk about his six-decade career.
The famed director, 80, who has directed DiCaprio eight times, including Killers of the Flower Moon, said that he has soured on one film in recent years.
After earning his first Best Director award for The Departed in 2006, Scorsese felt “encouraged” to direct Shutter Island, but he regrets it.
In 2016, Scorsese directed Liam Neeson and Andrew Garfield in Silence, his passion project. The film is based on Shūsaku Endō's novel of the same name and follows two Jesuit priests searching for their master in Japan.
In recent years, it has been viewed as a lesser work of the director than Taxi Driver (1976), Raging Bull (1980), and The Age of Innocence (1993).
It's also the filmmaker's only narrative feature picture release in the last two decades without an Oscar nomination.
Scorsese may have been referring to Hugo (2011) and The Wolf of Wall Street, his two films before Silence.
But The Aviator (2004), his second film starring DiCaprio, “forced” Scorsese to collaborate with Weinstein again. The director said the filming went well until Miramax “came in and did some things that I felt were extremely mean” in the last weeks of editing.
