Top Ten Martin Scorsese Movies

The Top Ten

1 Goodfellas

It is definitely a spectacle in the Gangster movie scene and is one of the most legendary movies of all time

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.

Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro are so good, this movie is funny

My favorite movie ever. It's just perfect

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.

What a masterpiece, Goodfellas is great, but for me, Taxi Driver takes the cake!

This movie changed my understanding of what film could be. Hell, it changed me.

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.

3 The Departed

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

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

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

One of the best movies of all time, so sure is martin scorsese's best film

4 Raging Bull

that should be number 1 his best film ever
Departed should be like 4 or 5 but not number 1 for its a remake of an early film called Internal Affairs - sUx2Bu

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

De Niro's performance is among the greatest ever - BeatlesFan1964

Scorsese's best movie.

5 The Wolf of Wall Street

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

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!

It must be at top 5 and please an oscar now for Leonardo!

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!

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. Its my favourite with the departed and goodfellas...

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

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

Great! Excellent movie

8 The King of Comedy
9 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.

10 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

The Contenders

11 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.

12 Gangs of New York

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

This should be, at least, in the top 10! - zero0520

13 After Hours

One of the most entertaining films of Scorsese

14 Hugo

Vote Hugo it is amazing!

15 The Age of Innocence
16 The Last Waltz

Greatest music film ever!

17 Cape Fear

Super thriller movie

18 Bringing Out the Dead
19 Kundun
20 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.
