Product Description


"Engaging, insightful, and wonderfully crafted, this succinct biography of Scorsese captures the essence of the man, the filmmaker, and the film historian. Using a form of intertextuality, LoBrutto demonstrates how Scorsese's Catholic Italian upbringing influenced his filmmaking from the beginning--and still continues to influence it. The author takes the reader on a visceral guided tour of Scorsese's life, beginning with his grandparents' immigration to the US and continuing to the present, noting along the way the critical stages in the filmmaker's development. He links the stages to specific films, showing the impact of Scorsese's dilemmas and personal growth on his filmmaking. Brutally honest, but never judgmental, LoBrutto reveals the man behind the myth, a man of genius plagued by personal struggles and artistic angst. Providing insight into the life and craft of one of the US's greatest filmmakers, this entertaining volume will be an invaluable resource for students of both film history and biography. Essential. All readers, all levels." - Choice
