Ian Nathan


Illustrated with images as iconic as they are stunning and including the author’s first-hand experiences on set and interviews with the great director, this magnificent book charts the extraordinary journey of Britain’s greatest living director.

Telling the stories behind Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, his new HBO drama Raised by Wolves and many more, it also goes in search of the themes and motifs that unite such different films, and the methods and madness of Scott’s approach to his medium. This is the story of a director who has never been less than stubbornly, brilliantly, unforgettably his own man.
