From the Publisher:
Martin Scorsese’s career is a dense map of critical darlings and experimental films—from Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, and Raging Bull, to The Last Temptation of Christ, Kundun, and Shutter Island. Now we are given the chance to see all of his movies, and moviemaking in general, through the eyes of the master director himself.
Richard Schickel’s canny and intelligent interviews guide us through Scorsese’s life and work, from the child who escaped the realities of Little Italy in the 1950s through movies to the man whose increasingly encyclopedic knowledge of film shaped his ambitions and art. He talks about his lesser-known movies, those already considered classics, his documentaries, and his influences. He reveals which films are most autobiographical, and which have been forays into unknown territory in subject or aesthetics. He explains his style as a filmmaker, the close attention he pays to detail, and his attraction to genre films. And he discusses what being a lifelong student of film has taught him about acting, directing, and camerawork, among many other topics.
Conversations with Scorsese affords us a rare and invaluable appreciation of one of our most admired film directors.
