Catholicism & Conflict in the Films of Martin Scorsese


Michael Bliss, The Scarecrow Press Inc.,  Filmakers No. 45, 1995, Hardcover



Backcover Blurb:

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.More than just a genre director, then, Scorsese is a man of many talents. In this book, an expanded and updated study of Scorsese's work, Michael Bliss probes and discusses the underlying humanism and morality in Scorsese's films while at the same time focusing on the director's characteristic thematic concerns, most of which seem to derive from the conflict between conventional morality and individual desires.


"Your book contains the only criticism that draws attention to all of the details in my films that I worked so hard to include."

-Martin Scorsese (on Bliss's Martin Scorsese and Michael Cimino)
