Scorsese’s New York

Few directors are as closely associated with New York City as Martin Scorsese, and this montage by production company House of Nod and editor Robert Kolodny is a pleasant cinematic tribute to the filmmaking veteran's unwavering love for his birthplace. "Scorsese's New York" draws on 14 of the director's films, including After Hours, Goodfellas, and his most recent effort, The Wolf of Wall Street. In three short minutes, you get a feel for many of the myriad ways Scorsese has shot the city in his decades-long career.

As House of Nod puts it, "New York inspires Marty ... Marty inspires New York."
