Bashful or secretive, Scorsese isn't. He LOVES to talk about himself and why he does or did what he does or did and why he thinks he should have or shouldn't have. I know if I were to sit down for a drink with him, we'd be talking like old friends at once. I've read everything there is about him and even listened to all of his own commentaries on disks of his movies. My kind of guy. Creative, too, at least in the early years. People born after the 70's will never know the shock of his veracity was in Mean Streets, and why I was hooked from then on. ( )
