Lobrutto (editing, production design, and cinema studies, School of Visual Arts, New York) provides the first biography of director Martin Scorcese, connecting the films to his life by looking at his Italian-American heritage and Catholic upbringing, his career, and impact on the film industry. He discusses the role New York City had in Scorcese's life and as an influence on his films; his personality, relationships, and marriages; and struggles with drugs and depression. The biography is built around films such as New York, New York, Raging Bull, The King of Comedy, The Last Temptation of Christ, GoodFellas, Casino, Gangs of New York, and The Departed. Autobiographical references, thematic allusions, personal views, and film history are critically examined in these films and others. In writing the book, Lobrutto accessed selected papers in Scorcese's archives at The Wesleyean Film Studies Center. An interview with Scorcese is appended, along with directing, acting, producing, and presenting filmographies. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
