New York is (usually) such a part of his films. What would his work be like if he hadn't grown up in NY?

Scorsese, so promising during his
classic 70's and 80's phase --yet
over time we see, beyond the riveting
acting out by his stable, and some
stunning camera flourishes and set-ups
---his endings, virtually one and all, fail to consumate spiritually
---or even artistically.

Read Jake LaMotta's book 'Raging Bull'
---THEN watch the film again ---and you'll see what I mean.

We're also saddened by Scorsese's last
couple of decades of tiresome routine
project work and endless Boomer era
retreading.

Boomer Hollywood ---what a let down.

-----Oh well...
