Scorsese's Couch. "Scorsese's Men: Melancholia and the Mob" by Mark Nicholls. [review]
Due to his use of psychoanalytic theory, Nicholls does not aim to communicate with the mass audiences who enjoy Scorsese flicks at the local suburban multiplex cinema. Rather, the author targets those familiar with the developing interdisciplinary field of masculinity studies, particularly the sub-specialty of how men are portrayed in film. Within these parameters, "Scorsese’s Men" is an original and challenging work, filled with provocative insights.
