it was ok

A snore. Scorsese drags out stale anecdotes and sidesteps the myriad personal problems that motivate his portrayals of women and violence. Schickel comes off as himself: a hero-worshipping hagiographer (between this book and his Eastwood books, Schickel crosses into sycophanty). Read Scorsese on Scorsese, listen to some audio commentaries, and ignore this crawl-up-the-butt hack job.
