With Martin Scorsese’s long-cherished passion project Silence finally out on the big screen, a two-month retrospective celebration now underway at BFI Southbank and a 40th-anniversary re-release of Taxi Driver around the corner, what better time to unveil a very special Scorsese issue? Across 20 pages, the director talks at length with Philip Horne about the influence of Catholic faith and Japanese cinema on his new film; Brigitte Lacombe photographs the director on set; Nick James presents five case studies in Scorseseian expressionist abstraction; and Ian Christie traces Scorsese’s rising authority as an advocate of cinematic history, preservation and education.

Also this month, we talk to Michelle Williams and Kenneth Lonergan about the haunting Manchester by the Sea, Juan Antonio Bayona about his new grief fantasia A Monster Calls and Jeff Nichols about his interracial period drama Loving. Sophie Mayer unpacks one of the year’s best documentaries, Kirsten Johnson’s Cameraperson, and David Thomson considers the ever-strange figure of Howard Hughes in the context of Warren Beatty’s new romcom Rules Don’t Apply.
