If you weren't around for Martin Scorsese's visit to the Wexner Center in February 1997 to accept the Wexner Prize - or you would like to relive it - the University of Chicago Press has just released Scorsese by Ebert, a collection of the prolific critic's writing on one of our era's greatest filmmakers. The collection includes the transcript of Ebert's two-hour interview with Scorsese on the Mershon Auditorium stage before a packed house and, at roughly 50 pages, is easily the longest piece in the book. (Ebert even notes that he was surprised at the length of the interview in preparing it for publication.) It is a wonderful, free-flowing conversation between Scorsese and one of his greatest admirers.
