This is the fifth title in the highly successful Ultrascreen series from Plexus. Martin Scorsese: A Journey Through The American Psyche collects the best articles, interviews and reviews to present the big picture, revealing Scorsese as the ultimate American director, a consummate storyteller and visual stylist who lives and breathes movies. While many of his contemporaries have burnt out or sold out, Scorsese has continued to tackle controversial material, exploring the narrative themes of social alienation, crime and the war-path of the urban male ego. His breakthrough film Mean Streets (1973) starring Robert de Niro, made a huge impact, becoming an instant classic, its hallmarks being the visual clout and technical brilliance that inform all of his work. Scorsese-De Niro collaborations produced further classics, including Taxi Driver (1973), and Raging Bull (1980). Twenty years on Scorsese was masterminding unforgettable films Goodfellas (1990), Casino (1995) and the recent Gangs of New York (2002). Best known for these, but having directed a huge variety of films, what all his films share is a definitive quality. Scorsese's films reveal the dark heart of our culture - often ahead of time. Here, editor Paul Woods looks at Scorsese's personal history and passions, and how these inform and inspire his film-making. Spanning several decades, and covering all his films, including his forthcoming feature The Aviator, this anthology charts the evolution of modern cinema via the work of one of its masters. Editor Paul A. Woods Editor Paul Woods is also the author of King Pulp: The Wild World of Quentin Tarantino, and Weirdsville USA: The Obsessive Universe of David Lynch.
