Martin Scorsese – complex and brilliant

Taxi Driver was a classic
 What did I expect to see from Martin Scorsese’s hands? I know that he is a brilliant movie director famous for dark themes and action films. I expected to find creative brilliance and a dark imagination. His hands did not disappoint. 

 He has a squarish hand with short fingers, and three of these are decidedly conic, maybe even a little pointed – the Mercury (little) and Jupiter (index)   fingers and the thumb. Scorsese has slightly thick fingers with pronounced third phalanges, shortish second phalanges, and a long, slim, first phalange of Apollo on a prominent finger. He has a long,   supple thumb with a long will (first) phalange. He has a fairly long, slightly curved heartline reaching the Jupiter mount and a medium length, slightly sloping headline which is likely forked. The most prominent mounts on his hands are the Moon, Jupiter, Venus and the Mercury mounts. That’s a lot of mounts to be well developed. The first phalange of his Apollo finger is long. 

You can check out his hand photos here and here.

It’s all there. His creative brilliance is clearly etched on his hand and it’s not only seen in one place. The headline, the curve of the moon mount and his Apollo finger all point to it. But creativity of the genius kind is not a characteristic that can stand alone like an island,
