This book is a must-have for anyone interested in the intricacies of the filmmaking process from inception to script to filming to finally editing and releasing the film. If you've ever wondered what Scorsese's thought about one of his movies, the answer lies herein.
This extremely interesting and insightful book by filmmaker and reviewer Richard Schickel delves into Scorsese's origins to his film Shutter Island, essentially covering everything. The book goes in depth into just everything you could possibly want to know about the man or the films.
This book will hopefully be among the great film books in history, perhaps among such (now) classics as Francois Truffaut's famed interviews with Alfred Hitchcock, the Master of Suspense. If you are a fan of Scorsese and enjoy his films, I urge you to purchase this book. It's worth the price, and it's most definitely worth your time.
