Which film do you think is Scorsese's best? I've chosen his 10 most well regarded for the poll so sorry if your favourite is missing.

I'd say Taxi driver but Raging Bull is extremely close

My problem with Goodfellas, although very small is that all the characters were bastards so you really couldn't feel bad when they died. Although that is my favorite scorsese movie. The Departed wasn't bad either, definantly not his best though.

Goodfellas, it is in the top three gangster films of all time. Along with The Godfather and The Long Good Friday. It is such a great film, with amazing and definitive characters.

I still haven't seen Raging Bull, and I have a feeling that might take the number one spot. But The Departed is his second best, a great comeback for Scorsese into the gangster world. He needed that Oscar.

I agree with you about Goodfellas, but I don't think you're meant to empathise with anybody apart from, maybe Henry, but definitely his wife. Joe Pesci's character deserved his ending, even though Billy Batts was being a complete wanker.

The way the story is told, it almost glorifies gangster life, completely unlike Casino - that shows the bleak pits of Vegas really well.

I picked Taxi Driver because Casino wasnt there.

I used to get Casino mixed up in my head with Good Fellas because of the amount of actors that are in both films.

Quote by dio5288
the departed is so overrated, i dont see how ppl can pick that as his best movie. i wouldnt even put it in the top 3


I agree, I guess its because a lot of people haven't seen the others and the Departed was out recently so...
#16
Between the only two that I've seen - The Aviator and The Departed - my vote goes for the Departed.
WHY IS EVERYONE IN THE PIT A FUCKING METALCORE KID

It's a REALLY tough choice between Taxi Driver and Goodfellas.

*flips coin*

Taxi Driver it is.
#18
no direction home???????

#21
Off that list Goodfellas. But I'd vote Casino if that was there.

Exactly. Look at Nicky in Casino. As much of an evil bastard as he was, I felt really sorry for him when they whacked him.

People are actually voting The Departed over Taxi Driver (best movie ever) and Raging Bull?


I can understand goodfellas, thats an excellent movie, but the departed was boring.
#24
I've only seen "Taxi Driver", "Goodfellas", "Departed" & "Gangs Of New York" (which appears to be missing from your list)

I voted for "Goodfellas"

Mean Streets hasn't got any votes and it's much better than the Departed.
