A personal journey with Martin Scorsese through American movies DVD

In this documentary Martin Scorsese takes us on a winding personal history of film. Showing what inspired, entertained, entranced and formed his mind as a film maker and a film watcher. One of the great pleasures of a documentary of this nature is that it exposes the viewer to films that have been not forgotten, but are not part of the cannon of classics…. And it reminds the viewer that not all film that captures your imagination is necessarily great, or even good. Over all I recommend this to anyone who is interested in film, film history, or exploring something other than what ever had been at the Cineplex in the last six months.
