FAMS 120 Filmmakers-Martin Scorsese's America

This course is an examination of the films of Martin Scorsese, one of the most prolific, successful, and distinctive filmmakers in American cinema. As we explore both the breadth and depth of Scorsese's body of work, we will use his films as windows through which to understand: 1) cinema as a complex art form, and 2) cultural complexities around issues such as family, ethnicity, class, masculinity, deviance, salvation, and violence.
