Re: List your Top 10 Scorsese movies Here:

This should be moved to the Movie area since it's discussing the films themselves and not the DVDs, but I'll play anyway:

Raging Bull
Goodfellas
Casino
The Departed
The Aviator
Cape Fear
The Last Waltz
Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore
After Hours
The Last Temptation of Christ

Here are two existing threads on the subject:

Favorite Martin Scorsese film?

Weekly Poll (4/11/04): BEST Martin Scorsese film?

The book referred to by the OP is "Scorsese by Ebert."

A lot of folks put Goodfellas first. I'm more effected by Taxi Driver, but should prob put Goodfellas ahead of it as I've prob watched it about twice as much.

GOODFELLAS
TAXI DRIVER
MEAN STREETS

That's pretty much it. If you put a gun to my head, I'll add:

BOXCAR BERTHA
WHO'S THAT KNOCKIN' AT MY DOOR?
AGE OF INNOCENCE
KUNDUN

And THAT's it!

I haven't seen Goodfellas since the early 90's so it definitely needs to be revisited. I think The Departed also scores well since I saw it theatrically.

I put Taxi Driver first because it's a primal movie. Travis Bickle is every man at a certain point in his life. Goodfellas is prob the most entertaining, though. A stark look at the REAL mob, that only romanticizes the subject matter when the protagonist sees his world that way. Pure virtuoso filmmaking.
