Martin Scorsese to Resume Devil in the White City Project Next Month Director Martin Scorsese has been making movies since the 1960s, but the 74-year-old master filmmaker has seen his greatest career success in the last few years. The Departed, in 2006, finally won him his first Oscar. More recently, 2011’s Hugo won him critical praise despite middling box office, while 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street was an even bigger hit.
