"It seems that the life of a film-maker, even a successful one, comes at a huge personal cost. 'You have to be determined to make a film, because everything is going to come at a cost,' Scorsese says. 'It’s a commitment that you have to follow through, nothing can stop you. You have to be a little mad, I think, in a way. But it’s a dangerous thing because it’s to the exclusion of almost anyone else in your life, you have to make this film, you have to feel this strongly.'" - Kaleem Aftab via The Independent
