13 Iconoclast P3- Martin Scorsese - A Personal Journey Through American Movies (1995)

"What everybody needs is a way to say where and how can I love, can I be in love so that I can live with some degree of peace...thats why I have a need for the characters to really analyse love, discuss it, kill it, destroy it, hurt each other...I have a one track mind, thats all I'm interested in, is Love." John Cassavetes

Chapter 13 The Director as Iconoclast Part 3 from A Personal Journey with Martin Scorsese Through American Movies (1995). Martin Scorsese is a master craftsman in the art of cinema with an encyclopaedic knowledge of Movies. It is a pleasure to hear his views on early American cinema where his love of the silverscreen was awakened and "coloured his dreams".
