Default Martin Scorsese

One of the greatest directors who ever lived? He's my personal favorite director, and has brought us some of the greatest films ever made. My favorite film usually shifts between Goodfellas and Taxi Driver, but Raging Bull is not too far behind either. Even his films that don't get as much as spotlight as those three are still pretty damn good.

Thoughts on the man and his work?

Amazing director, The Goodfellas was my favorite, but when I saw Casino, I just got soo attached to the movie. Can't go wrong with his films. The Aviator was sweet, but a tad too long.

My alltime favorite director. Simply amazing.

Taxi Driver gets my vote.

So simple, yet so powerful.

Scorsese has created such an impressive catalogue of films -- that it will be hard for any director to top, ever. Even his more medicore films are better than the best films of most modern directors. Scorsese is an artist in every sense of the word; not just a director that sits in a chair with blind enthusiasm. He has a genuine love for film, and you see it in everything he's ever done.

Raging Bull
Taxi Driver
Goodfellas
Casino
Mean Streets


Bringing Out the Dead is also a very great and under rated film.

It goes back and forth between Taxi Driver and Goodfellas, for me. But probably Taxi Driver.

I love him, he's one of my favorites.

I totally rented "Singapore's answer to Taxi Driver" today. Isn't that good enough?
