My Favorite Scorsese Films

I realize that my list may look a touch off kilter. This is just my order of preference in terms of which films I'm most likely to put in and watch at a given moment. I'm sure it's pretty clear how important KING OF COMEDY is to me. Personally Scorsese was a really formative influence in so many ways. I really came to love movies as I started to discover his work. He taught me, like he has so many, the importance of older cinema. It's a lesson I'll carry with me forever and have already tried to pass on to my children. I know there will be a time when people won't remember many of these films, but I'd like to think it's far far off, well past my lifetime.


1. THE KING OF COMEDY

2. AFTER HOURS

3. TAXI DRIVER

4. GOODFELLAS

5. MEAN STREETS

6. CASINO

7. RAGING BULL

8. THE DEPARTED

9. NEW YORK, NEW YORK

10. SHUTTER ISLAND

11. ALICE DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE

12. AMERICAN BOY

13. ITALIANAMERICAN

14. THE AVIATOR

A better question is: what's your least favorite Scorsese film? Bringing Out the Dead, Kundun, The Color of Money, maybe Boxcar bertha... the bad list is remarkably short!

It's been forever since I've revisited "After Hours." Another one to add to the list.

I love Kundun

Probably BOXCAR BERTHA Steve, but I actually like that film ok too even.

Squonk-Revisit AFTER HOURS asap! So good! One of my favorite comedies ever.

Bri-KUNDUN is at the top of my Netflix q currently, ready for my revisit.
