Martin Scorsese (USA, b. 1942) is among the most prolific of American directors, having made more than 25 features in a 40-year career that has seen him garner all the highest honours the film world can bestow. Since the success of Taxi Driver in 1976, which also marked the start of his long collaboration with Robert De Niro, he has continued to draw endless inspiration from his Italian-American roots in films such as Goodfellas (1990) and Casino (1995). A cinephile director with a strong spirit of independence, he has managed to combine making blockbusters such as Aviator (2004), The Departed (2006) and Shutter Island (2010) with more personal films on the history of cinema (A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese Through American Movies, 1995) and music (Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones). He is also admired and respected throughout the world for the tireless work of his Film Foundation in preserving America's film heritage.

Review quote

'modern directors are briefly and brilliantly profiled in sharp prose and smart pictures in these movie master-classes for film buffs and beginners.' Saga 'short, beautifully illustrated essays on great directors' The Times 'exceptional value .. lively and accessible ... indispensable' Obessed with Film.com 'bargain price. Does an already saturated market need yet more auteur guides? On this evidence, yes. ... briskly paced, scalpel-sharp primers ...The collective quality is high, the tone scholarly but not intimidating. ... A triumph of layout as much as content, each book glows with gorgeous on- and off-screen archive photography... Magnifique.' Total Film
