Martin Scorsese (Directors Close Up)
Martin Scorsese is one of the elite band of filmmakers whose originality and craftsmanship has influenced a generation of film directors. His collaborations with Robert De Niro and skill in telling stories sets him apart as one of the all time original directors. When Taxi Driver blasted onto the scene in 1979 it confirmed what everyone recognised as a huge new talent when Mean Streets was released six years earlier. 'This is a powerful film. the final scene is a cinematically brilliant sequence...' crowed Variety. At least one of Taxi Driver, Mean Streets, Raging Bull and The King Of Comedy is on everyone's top ten best films. After thirty years filmmaking Scorsese is one of the few directors working in Hollywood whose movies still surprise and shock. He is still prepared to take risks and is still producing great movies. So what is it that makes Scorsese tick? What makes him take on a movie? How does he approach the script and decide the what he wants up there on the screen? Andy Dougan has interviewed Scorsese many times and has talked to many of the stars who have appeared in his movies including, most recently, Sharon Stone, to create a fascinating inside look at the making of his movies. In addition, and for the first time,Variety, the bible of the movie business, has allowed the complete reviews for all Scorsese's movies, including a full list of credits for each movie, to be reproduced together creating a unique reference source.
