Top Ten Martin Scorsese Movies

The Top Ten
1 Goodfellas

GoodFellas is even greater than the Godfather films. Martin Scorsese perfectly depicts how there was a lot of mob business in Brooklyn during the 1970s.

Best mob film of all-time. DeNiro and especially Pesci at his psychopathic best! Use of song Layla is amazing!

This is not only the best Scorsese movie it's one of the best movies of all time.

2 Taxi Driver

Martin Scorsese has created many masterpieces. Taxi Driver is his greatest work. With Robert De Niro, he captures the very essence of crazy. A cabbie in a depressing city, where drug dealers and traffickers roam every street, who slowly descends into darkness.

Travis Bickle is one of the greatest characters ever to be put to screen. He gets more and more interesting with each viewing and is portrayed perfectly by DeNiro.

"You Talki'n to me? '
Well, I'm the only one here..."
De Niro says in one of the best films ever made, truly one of cinema's best, and definitely Martin's best!

3 The Departed

This movie epitomizes Scorsese's excellence in understanding how both a criminal organization and a police department function. The climax is second to none

Liked the leo-damon-nicholson trio.. But the credit for this masterpiece surely goes to the showman himself

This should be the Best of Martin Scorsese.. followed by Raging Bull and Goodfellas.

4 Raging Bull

Of course Niro's splendid performance. Scorsese also succeed to depicts psychological states of a human. How rage paranoia can destroy our life.

It should be no. 1, one of the ten best films ever made and the ultimate 80s masterpiece as well as Scorsese's

5 The Wolf of Wall Street

That movie is so funny! I will never forget the phone/kitchen scene... An oscar now for Leonardo! Now! Now! His performance was... Was... Awesome at least! Congrats!

Dicaprio and Scorsese are the best team! Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The departed, Shutter island and now The Wolf! Just all masterpieces!

The wolf of wall street
The departed
The taxi driver
... All masterpieces...

6 Casino

For me this is and goodfellas are the best. Both are just a little better than the departed, and I love the departed!

Has to be my favorite one, but damn so many good ones here!

7 Shutter Island

Everyone says that the new movies of scorsese are not so good! I disagree... Shutter island is a classy movie with the best dicaprio. It's my favourite with the departed and goodfellas...

The best masterpiece of Scorsese plus mixed with remarkable performance of Dicaprio, it resulted for an Epic/Classic movie.

A classy movie which teaches you what mean directing, acting, music, cinematography, atmosphere... A classy movie...

8 Mean Streets

Mean Streets is Scorsese showing the world the world he lived in. It's his breakthrough film and one of his best. The characters are fantastic, the plot, etc. It's all great.

9 Hugo
10 Gangs of New York

This should be, at least, in the top 10!

A superb film, Daniel Day Lewis gives the performance of a lifetime

The Contenders
11 The King of Comedy
12 Cape Fear
13 The Aviator

The Aviator is such a great film and yet so underapreciated. Come on, let's give some love to this one which just happens to have Leonardo diCaprio's greatest performance to date

It's best movie on the planet earth most inspirational, motivational movie in the whole of cosmos

14 The Last Temptation of Christ

This film should be in the top 10...Shows Scorsese's creative genius and the film features a very honest depiction of Jesus Christ

Well handled low budget movie depicting a more human Christ. Wouldn't call it his best though.

15 The Age of Innocence
16 The Irishman

It is great, don't listen to people complaining about being so long...don't remember people complaining how long The Lord of the Rings were, I only remember them saying they are great films...well of course they are!

17 After Hours
18 The Color of Money
19 The Last Waltz
20 Bringing Out the Dead
21 Silence

Just saw this and it was a brilliant, thought provoking masterpiece. Definitely deserves a spot in the top ten. Andrew Garfield gives his best performance to date, the cinematography is gorgeous, and Scorsese's direction was flawless as always.

22 Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore

Excellent and always underrated!
