About Book

The centrepiece of this issue comes from the celebrated French film magazine, Cahiers du Cinema. For their 500th issue Martin Scorsese contributed material not only about his own work - including his relationship with Robert de Niro - but also about film-makers he admires: those of his generation (Coppola, De Palma, Lucas and Spielberg), as well as those film-makers whose legacy enriches cinema today (Ford, Raoul Walsh, Ida Lupino, Hitchcock, John Cassavetes). He celebrates the glories of the British cinema, and concludes by posing five essential questions about film.

Other contributors include:

Jamie Lee Curtis - In Conversation with Janet Leigh and Lillian Burns
Hippolyte Girardot - Never Forget Mastroianni
Frances Mcdormand & Willem Dafoe - Acting is Believing
Robert Mitchum - Looking Like Nothing Matters
Brian Cox - Manhunter
Leslie Caron - The L-Shaped Room
Sylvia Syms - Victim
Teresa Wright - Shadow of a Doubt
Jaco van Dormael - Life Lessons
Bebe Barron - Making Music for Forbidden Planet
Christopher Porter - Photographing Dead Man
Frank Capra/Douglas Sirk - A Centenary Tribute
William K. Everson/Marcello Mastroianni - In Memoriam
