One of a series in which the practitioners of cinema write about their craft. Scorsese discusses his relationship with Robert de Niro, the film-makers of his generation, and the legacy of American cinema. There are also contributions by Jamie Lee Curtis, Brian Cox, Kerry Fox and Leslie Caron.
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
