Famed Director Martin Scorsese Admits He’s Never Been Camping or Visited an REI

The movie focuses on the story of the Osage Native American tribe after discovering oil on their land in Oklahoma. What followed were brutal murders, which the FBI eventually investigated.

Killer of the Flower Moon’s connection to Oklahoma led Scorsese to spend significant time in the area and the surrounding prairie land, which is all new to the director.

“I’m a New Yorker. I’m an urban person,” says Scorsese. Jimmy Kimmel is quick to jokingly reply, “Yeah, we knew that.

Scorsese comments on his lack of outdoor experience at around 14:45 into the clip:

Kimmel asks Scorsese if he’s been camping or to an REI. Both of which Scorsese laughs and admits that he has not. 

Besides his highly anticipated new movie, Martin Scorsese is the filmmaker behind Taxi Driver, The Departed, The Wolf of Wall Street, Gangs of New York, and Goodfellas.
