Scorsese has wrestled hard with his ambivalence over the legacy of his Catholicism. As a second-generation Sicilian-American, he also has had to come to grips with the stereotypes of organized crime while recognizing the dramatic interest of these fascinating and complex characters. In this book, each of Scorsese's films is thoughtfully discussed in a way that will help readers understand these and other themes in order to discern the overall patterns of the filmmaker's career.
