Martin Scorsese s films ignite connections, illuminating memories and moments from other movie-going experiences. This daring book explores the way he "remakes" other movies (Raging Bull replays The Red Shoes; Taxi Driver mirrors The Searchers) and how we absorb and make sense of these films."show more
