Scorsese on Scorsese, edited by Ian Christie, provides the definitive exploration of the works of the iconic film director, Martin Scorsese, the man behind films such as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, Gangs of New York, Kundun and The Wolf of Wall Street, among many others. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
From the Back Cover
Now fully updated, Scorsese on Scorsese is the definitive study of Americas foremost film director, including new chapters on Kundun, Bringing Out the Dead, the documentary My Voyage to Italy, and the epic Gangs of New York.
True to its title, this book offers Martin Scorsese in his own words: through a career-length interview in which he recalls his upbringing in New Yorks Little Italy, and explains the inspiration and creation of his many great movies, from Mean Streets and Taxi Driver, through Raging Bull and The Last Temptation of Christ, up to Goodfellas, Casino, and Gangs of New York. The result is an incomparable insight into a body of work that is the most personal achievement in modern American cinema.
Scorsese proves himself to be a terrifically articulate artist, whether recounting the many battles to get his movies made, his supreme passion for the medium of film itself, or the roots of his long-time creative partnership with actor Robert De Niro.
Scorsese on Scorsese also contains a complete filmography, and a wealth of behind-the-scenes stills and sketches from Scorseses own collection. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.See all Product Description

As always, Scorsese tells his story with the passion and interst that have made him one of the best known movie directors of all time and this book is pretty much top of the heap when it comes to Scorsese books.
I read this book in two sittings and found it,like the woody Allen book of similar title,a riveting read.
