2 Director’s Dilemma - Martin Scorsese - A Personal Journey Through American Movies (1995) by TheDozingLion
"From the beginning I saw film as a means of self expression. I was mostly interested in the directors, especially the ones who circumvented the system to get their visions onto the screen." Martin Scorsese "A poet or a Painter can be a loner, but the American film director has to be, first and foremost, a team player." Martin Scorsese Chapter 2 The Director’s Dilemma from A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese Through American Movies (1995). Martin Scorsese is a master craftsman in the art of cinema with an encyclopaedic knowledge of Movies. It is a pleasure to hear his views on early American cinema where his love of the silverscreen was awakened and "coloured his dreams".
