Martin Scorsese sent a fan an awesome message that would make any film buff jealous. After watching Leandro Copperfield’s video montage “Kubrick vs Scorsese,” the helmer made a video praising the creator for the tribute he made.

“Just saw your montage you made of films I’ve made mixed with the master Kubrick and I found it really well done, surprising and enjoyable,” said Scorsese in a video sent to Copperfield. “I was looking for more actually,” he continued with a laugh, “I finally got the chance to see your work and I think it’s great.”

Copperfield made the montage about six years ago and was shocked by the “Taxi Driver” helmer’s response, which he quickly shared on his Vimeo page.

“I was pleasantly surprised by a message from Martin Scorsese talking about my video homage named ‘Kubrick vs Scorsese’ that I made 6 years ago,” he wrote. “This man was directly responsible for make me love cinema and watch films in a different way since I was a child. Most of everything I know about movies and editing was mainly because of him. His passion and extreme willingness to share knowledge is, for me, one of the most beautiful things in cinema history.”

Adding, “So, there is no words to describe what this means to me. Marty is the man!”
