Overview

The Word Made Flesh is an exploration of the thematic concerns and the underlying humanism and morality found in Martin Scorsese's films. It contains individual chapters on fifteen Scorsese films, the most complete Scorsese filmography available, and a host of illustrations. Generally acknowledged as one of the most important and influential directors of his generation, Scorsese has directed a wide range of films, from documentaries to musicals to comedies to dramas. Although Scorsese has a well-known penchant for violence, as in the films Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and Cape Fear, he is also a master of the character study. The Word Made Flesh is an essential addition to any film collection.

Editorial Reviews

Martin Scorsese
Contains the only criticism that draws attention to all of the details in my films that I worked so hard to include.

Booknews
Bliss (English and film studies, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State U.) focuses on Scorsese's consistent thematic concerns, many of which seem to draw on the conflict between conventional morality and individual desires. A chapter on each of the director's 15 films is followed by a complete filmography, along with a section of b&w photographs. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
