I find this topic very harsh and I will take its heading as a bold statement that I don't have the answer for. :D

All i can say is that... there should be a Sir Martin Scorsese Award for future filmmakers.

Well, I haven't seen all of his films, I've seen Casino, Goodfellas, Raging Bull, Shutter Island, Aviator, The Departed, Taxi Driver... and I think from these my favorite is The Departed. It stands the closest to me :)
