A Prolific Filmmaker Martin Scorsese and Use of Violence in His Films
Looking at the history of film, since its inception in the 1920s with the advent of silent films, there has been violence in films.

Another soldier comes and tells Marechal that he has to replace a staff officer. The camera pans from him to Marechal to highlight the importance of the man entering the bar to Marechal.
