The Scorsese Connection (Perspectives)

by

The Scorsese Connection (Perspectives) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Lesley Stern has written a daringly innovative book on the work of Martin Scorsese, the most important contemporary film-maker in North America. Her vivid account invites the reader into a liminal world where texts, films and personal subjectivity freely mix.

Description:

Filmography: p. 253. Includes bibliographical references (p. 229-252) and index.

About the Author

LESLEY STERN teaches film and theater studies at the University of New South Wales and has written widely in the areas of film, theater, photography, and cultural studies.
