Scorsese: 'We went to Netflix because Hollywood didn't want us'

Martin Scorsese is one of the most acclaimed and influential directors of all time — with a roll-call of films including Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, Raging Bull and The Wolf of Wall Street.

His latest is The Irishman, an epic tale of organised crime in post-war US, starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci.

The Oscar-winning director spoke to the BBC's Arts editor, Will Gompertz, ahead of the film’s release.
