    This is a short video-essay examining Martin Scorsese's films. It shows how Scorsese has used cinema's grammar and vocabulary to expand its expressive force. Irrespective of the many genres within which he has worked, Scorsese harnesses such disciplines as colour, black & white, aspect-ratios, tracking shots, slow-motion, freeze-frame and whip-pans, not to mention voice-over, music and jump-cuts to fully realise cinema's expressive force. Scorsese uses these to present his one overriding theme.
