YR 2004 SN 0810847876 9780810847873 AB "Unlike other books on Martin Scorsese that favor the discussion of broad themes and plot summaries. Scorsese Up Close: A Study of the Films also looks at the cinematic text of the great director's films. With a scrutiny comparable to the detail Scorsese brings to the shooting and editing process, author Ben Nyce examines particular shots and sequences of shots in many of the director's works. By focusing on these key components. Nyce explains how the visual and aural elements of such scenes dramatize Scorsese's singular vision."--Jacket.
