There are two Robert De Niro. One is the consummate Academy Award-winning actor of Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and The Deer Hunter. The other is a man so private that a rare break of emotion seemed to one journalist observer to be "as astonishing to witness as the shattering of a glacier cliff." That intense privacy melts substantially under the scrutiny of this new biography by Shawn Levy (Rat Pack Confidential; Paul Newman: A Life). By exploring both De Niro's deep immersion film portrayals and his off-screen obliqueness, the biographer captures the depth of this his personality and, in surprising ways, the secret of his acting magic. A telling life.
