Martin Scorsese Explains Why He Loves Working With Leonardo DiCaprio
Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio have been collaborators for over 20 years now, and during an interview, the director explained the reason behind their ongoing partnership.
Scorsese said, “He [DiCaprio] goes to these weird places that are so difficult and convoluted, and through the convolution, somehow there’s a clarity that we reach.”
He continued, “I could shoot a close-up of him, he could be thinking of nothing, and I could intercut anything with it, and people will say, ‘Oh, he’s reacting to such and such.’”
The director claimed this power comes from DiCaprio’s expressions: “There’s something in his face that the camera locks into, in his eyes. The slightest movement, we know it.”
Their collaborations have brought out the best in both men, which fans will be able to see once again when "Killers of the Flower Moon" hits theaters on October 6, 2023.
