Martin Scorsese is one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, with a career spanning several decades and a filmography that includes classics such as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and Goodfellas. However, even the most accomplished directors can appreciate the talent of their peers.

In recent years, Scorsese has been effusive in his praise for the work of up-and-coming filmmaker Ari Aster. Known for his unsettling, atmospheric horror films such as Hereditary and Midsommar, Aster's work has impressed Scorsese, who has compared him to some of the greatest horror directors of all time. 

Now, Scorsese and Aster sat down to discuss Aster's newest film, Beau is Afraid

Martin Scorsese and Ari Aster Chat 'Beau is Afraid' and Filmmaking 

While the whole Q&A isn't in the video, the poster said they got the majority of it, and I feel like we learned a lot in the proceedings. Scorsese introduced Aster as “one of the most extraordinary new voices in world cinema.” 

He went on to add to his thoughts on the new film, saying:

“This film was remarkable for me on different levels. The second time I saw it I noticed the technical artistry behind it. The first time I didn’t know what it was about, nobody had told me anything about it. I was impressed by the language of it which was so unique and so original. The risk-taking is so unique and so powerful and there aren’t many filmmakers who can’t do that on that level today.”
