Scorsese received a Master of Arts degree from New York University's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development in 1968. His directorial debut, ''Who's That Knocking at My Door'' (1967), was accepted into the Chicago Film Festival. In the 1970s and 1980s decades, Scorsese's films, much influenced by his Italian-American background and upbringing in New York City, center on macho-posturing men and explore crime, machismo, nihilism, and Catholic concepts of guilt and redemption. His trademark styles include extensive use of slow motion and freeze frames, graphic depictions of extreme violence, and liberal use of profanity. His 1973 crime film ''Mean Streets'' was a blueprint for his filmmaking styles.

Scorsese won the at Cannes with his 1976 psychological thriller ''Taxi Driver'', which starred Robert De Niro, who became associated with Scorsese through eight more films including ''New York, New York'' (1977), ''Raging Bull'' (1980) ''The King of Comedy'' (1982), ''Goodfellas'' (1990), and ''Casino'' (1995). In the following decades, he garnered box office success with a series of collaborations with Leonardo DiCaprio. These films include ''Gangs of New York'' (2002), ''The Aviator'' (2004), ''The Departed'' (2006), ''Shutter Island'' (2010) and ''The Wolf of Wall Street'' (2013). He reunited with De Niro with ''The Irishman'' (2019) and ''Killers of the Flower Moon'' (2023), the latter also featuring DiCaprio. His other films include ''After Hours'' (1985), ''The Color of Money'' (1986), ''The Last Temptation of Christ'' (1988), ''The Age of Innocence'' (1993), ''Kundun'' (1997), ''Hugo'' (2011), and ''Silence'' (2016).

In addition to film, Scorsese has directed episodes for some television series including the HBO series ''Boardwalk Empire'' (2011–2015), and ''Vinyl'' (2016), as well as the HBO documentary ''Public Speaking'' (2010), and the Netflix docu-series ''Pretend It's a City'' (2021). He is also known for several rock music documentaries including ''The Last Waltz'' (1978), ''No Direction Home'' (2005), ''Shine a Light'' (2008), and ''George Harrison: Living in the Material World'' (2011). An advocate for film preservation and restoration, he founded three nonprofit organizations: The Film Foundation in 1990, the World Cinema Foundation in 2007, and the African Film Heritage Project in 2017.
