This book accompanies the first international exhibition on Martin Scorsese, held in Berlin and Turin. Martin Scorsese, one of the greatest directors of the latter half of the 20th century, is featured in a long interview and over 300 photographs, including many from his set of cult movies such as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Aviator and The Departed. Personal memorabilia and film stills, combined together with accounts from several of Scorsese’s closest associates and critical insights, make for a fascinating journey exploring the Master’s films and private world. This itinerary traces Scorsese’s obsessions – those of a filmmaker, who has succeeded in skilfully mingling cinema and life, illustrating some of the harshest realities of the times we live in.
