Well, this is the moment we all have been waiting for (ok, I have been waiting for): my favorite director, Martin Scorsese.

I'm focusing on Scorsese's 25 narrative feature films that he has directed (this would exclude his documentaries or shorts).

  10. The Age of Innocence
  11. After Hours
  12. The Color of Money
  13. Mean Streets
  14. The Irishman
  15. Who's That Knocking at My Door
  16. New York, New York
  17. Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore
  18. Silence
  19. Kundun
  20. Hugo
  21. Bringing Out the Dead
  22. The Aviator
  23. Gangs of New York
  24. The Last Temptation of Christ
  25. Boxcar Bertha

Some notes: Casino is not only my favorite Scorsese movie, but probably my favorite movie ever.

Leo's performance in Wolf of Wall Street is one of his best and I think he should have won the Oscar for it.

As time passes the more Nicholson's performance bothers me (too cartoonish) and how it would be better with De Niro in the role (but he was filming The Good Shepherd).

Always had a hard time rewatching Taxi Driver, very unsettling.

I went to see Hugo at the theaters when it came out in 2011, but 10 minutes in the electricity at the mall went out so they gave everyone an open-ended ticket for 1 movie. For whatever reason I didn't use the rain-check on Hugo and never saw it till this year.

For the poll I used Scorsese's ten most voted films in IMDb's, so take it up with them.

It’s a toss up between wolf of Wall Street and the departed for me.

Shutter Island probably. Fantastic psychological thriller with a dark atmosphere.

I've only seen a few of his movies, and of the my favorite is probably Goodfellas.
