For my final paper I will focus on auteur theory, and how the theory could be seen through Martin Scorsese’s work. I will focus on the different opinions of what the theory is, and how Scorsese’s work exemplifies it. There are many motifs in Scorsese’s work that I can focus on such as Italian Americans, religious guilt, and violence. By comparing Scorsese’s work from early in his career to the work he has done in this century, I will show how Scorsese is one of the greatest auteurs ever. The films I will focus on will be Taxi Driver (70s), Raging Bull (80’s), Gangs of New York, and The Departed (2000’s).
