There seems to be a subtle theme about religion and God in a good number of his films. Consider Taxi Driver (1976). Robert De Niro's character, Travis Bickle, feels that he is the avenging angel, that must save Iris (Jodie Foster) from a life of damnation. It was one of the many things that made Taxi Driver so successful in the first place. De Niro is Scorsese's frequent star in such films as Raging Bull, a biography of Jake Lamotta, and the recent Casino. Because of such films, Scorsese was considered the new voice of the 70's and a large influence in the 80's and 90's.
Though Scorsese has not had a financial success on the level of E.T. or Star Wars, he has earned an overwhelming respect and enormous amounts of kudos from fellow filmakers, actors, critics and most importantly, the general public. It has made him the envy of many of his peers.
