About the Author

Ian Christie is a well-respected lecturer on film who has co-edited Scorsese on Scorsese, edited Gilliam on Gilliam and is the author of a study of the films of Powell and Pressburger, Arrows of Desire.

Born in Queens, New York, in 1942, Martin Scorsese seriously contemplated the priesthood but finally embraced cinema and, following Mean Streets (1973) emerged as the pre-eminent American director of his generation.
Taxi Driver won the Palme d'Or at Cannes in 1976; Raging Bull (1980) is considered the greatest American film of its decade. During the 90s, he made GoodFellas (1990) and Casino (1995).
In the past decade he has made, Gangs of New York (2002), The Aviator (2004) and Shutter Island (2010). He received an Oscar of Best Director for The Departed in 2007.

HASH(0xa2623f78) out of 5 stars Print on Demand 16 Dec. 2013
By Doctor John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is largely a reprint, by Faber & Faber Ltd., of the original (1985) Ed published by Waterstone & Co., Ltd. My copy has printed in the IBC: "Made in the USA / Lexington, KY / 12 December 2013". In other words, a "Print on Demand".

Its figures are atrociously reproduced.
