At 80, Scorsese has been reflective about mortality and how deliberate he wants to be about the movies he makes going forward. The “Killers” script went through countless revisions, he told at a cocktail party Sunday evening, morphing from a story about the FBI to a story about the Osage people standing up for themselves despite a dismaying lack of attention from the government. The Osage had been lucky enough to find oil on their land, becoming the richest people per capita in the world, but unlucky enough to become the targets of murderous White men who wanted their wealth for themselves. Had the script stayed focused on the White saviours from the FBI, Scorsese said, “I would not have made it. … I think other people know how to make that kind of film better than me. Meaning that they have a more enjoyable [time] or maybe they love it more. I don’t think it’s my forte.
