Everyone believes that Robert De Niro is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, actors of all time. His performances, particularly in the first twenty years of his career, are unparalleled. In The Godfather, Taxi Driver, Mean Streets, The Deer Hunter, Raging Bull, De Niro dazzled moviegoers with his talent, the likes of which we have rarely or never seen. Yet so little is known about De Niro--he is an intensely private man, whose rare public appearances are often marked by inarticulateness and all-around awkwardness. It can be almost painful to watch at times, in such contrast to his on-screen personae. In this elegant and compelling biography, Shawn Levy writes of these many De Niros--of the characters, and of the man, seeking to understand an evolution of an actor who once used roles to hide the nature of his real life, and who now turns down those parts, instead to play characters who possess little challenge to his overwhelming talent. From De Niro's roots as the child of artists (often called Bobby Milk for his pasty complexion) to his marriages and life as a father, restauranteur, and philanthropist, and of course to his current movie career, Levy has written a biography that reads like a novel of a character whose inner turmoil takes him to heights of artistry. Among the many who have been key players in his career are the likes of Martin Scorcese, Francis Ford Coppola, Meryl Streep, John Cazale, and countless others who appear in the book.
