There's no shortage of religious imagery in Italian-American cinematic icon Martin Scorsese's filmography, from cathedrals and confessionals to moments of prayer and rebellion against God. He spent a year at a seminary and almost became a priest, and his relationship with Catholocism has been picked apart in profiles and film analysis for decades. Documented Scorsese enthusiast and filmmaker Milad Tangshir throws his hat into the pool of Scorsese theorists with a new supercut called Scorsese, Crucifixion Postures.
"I'm not trying to prove a concrete assumption," Tangshir warns in the video description. Gathering images throughout Scorsese's whole career, from Who's That Knocking At My Door (1967) to The Wolf Of Wall Street (2013), he weaves a barrage of actors in crucifixion-like poses with footage from The Last Temptation of Christ (1988) to prove his point. "You might not agree with this, and that's all right."
