In what was surely the highest-profile Q&A of this awards season, and maybe any, Steven Spielberg posed questions to Martin Scorsese on Tuesday night following a packed screening of Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon — a dynamic that one Academy member likened to “Mozart interviewing Beethoven.”

After the two legends took the stage at the DGA Theatre in Los Angeles to a thundering standing ovation, Spielberg told Scorsese, “For me, this is just an exceptional experience, watching your film. You know how I feel about all of your films, but this one stands out in a way for me that’s so impactful. It’s an epic journey, but it’s not a Hollywood epic, for me; it’s a humanitarian epic.”

Then, the two old friends, calling each other “Steve” and “Marty,” discussed how Scorsese built trust with and worked alongside members of the Osage nation; the fact that Robert De Niro loved the Osage language so much that he wanted the whole film to be performed in it; and the breakout performance of Killers lead actress Lily Gladstone, who was sitting unnoticed in the back row of the theater (and who told me afterward that it was just as surreal as you might imagine to have those two masters speaking in such glowing terms about her).

Spielberg closed the conversation by declaring: “You are the master of our medium, and this is your masterpiece, Marty.”

The Hollywood Reporter exclusively shares video of the full conversation below.
