Harvey Keitel has made his menacing presence felt in some of the greatest cult movies ever, from Scorsese's "Taxi Driver" and "Mean Streets" to Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction". The godfather of independent film makers, Keitel has a record for supporting star directors of the future, from Scorsese (his first acting job was in Scorsese's film school thesis film), through Ridley Scott, Abel Ferrara, Jane Campion and Quentin Tarantino. Keitel's background prepared him for the tough and brooding roles he so often plays. Born in Brooklyn to poor Polish immigrants, he dropped out of school and joined the Marines at 17. Drawing on interviews with colleagues and friends, this biography tells the story of the rollercoaster career and turbulent personal life of this powerful performer.

With over fifty films to his name, a dozen of them since 1992, Keitel is one of the most ubiquitous and sought-after actors in Hollywood.

Since his tough childhood in Brooklyn, Keitel's life has been a dramatic and unconventional as his screen roles. 'Harvey Keitel: The Art of Darkness 'tells, for the first time, the story of the rollercoaster career and turbulent personal life of this most powerful performer.About the Author:
