Legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese shares his personal view and knowledge of the films, directors and actors that have shaped the world's most popular art form.

This special presentation on TWO DVDs includes the following:
The Director's Dilemma: Mastering The Creative Process
Martin Scorsese penetrates the industry's perennial conflict between Art and Commerce by examining the dynamic between the director's vision and the producer's "bottom line."

The Director As Storyteller: The Western, The Gangster Film, The Musical
Critical attention is paid to the primary role of the director - that of the consummate storyteller.Here, Mr. Scorsese offers a wealth of extracts from his film's greatest genres.

The Director As Illusionist: Controlling And Mastering The Technical Process
Martin Scorsese explores the director's constant search for technological solutions to tell his story, to implement his vision - from silents to sound, from black and white to Technicolor, from standard screen size to CinemaScope.

The Director As Smuggler: The Metaphor Behind the Vision
Moving effortlessly between cult favorites and acclaimed masterpieces, Martin Scorsese celebrates the director's surreptitious route to hide his personal message within the framework of a film.

The Director As Iconoclast: Asserting Personal Expression
Here, Martin Scorsese champions the mold-breakers - those who dared attack conventional filmmaking head on, defiantly sending shock waves throughout the industry, and ultimately expanding the art form.
