Happy 77th Birthday To Martin Scorsese, The Director of 'Mean Streets,' 'Goodfellas,' 'Casino,' And The Upcoming 'The Irishman'
As Biography.com notes, today is the 77th birthday of Martin Scorsese, the director of crime classic films, like Mean Streets, Goodfellas and Casino, as well as the upcoming and highly anticipated film on Netflix, The Irishman.
Martin Scorsese is known for his gritty, meticulous filmmaking style and is widely considered one of the most important directors of all time. Scorsese's passion for films started at a young age, as he was an 8-year-old, pint-sized filmmaker. In 1968, he completed his first feature-length film, Who's That Knocking at My Door?, but it wasn't until he released Taxi Driver nearly 10 years later that he skyrocketed to fame for his raw formula of storytelling. He proved that the film wasn't a fluke with a lengthy string of successes that included Raging Bull, Goodfellas, The Departed, Hugo and The Irishman.
