Top Ten : Martin Scorsese Movies
I recently compiled my top ten Martin Scorsese movies for Top10Films:
Other than fellow Movie Brat Steven Spielberg, there are few other contemporary directors out there who can rival Martin Scorsese in terms of both depth and quality of output. His movies are often brutal and violent, feature twisted and haunted protagonists and address such serious topics as guilt, machismo and salvation. Yet despite these dark ingredients, his movies are continually energetic, vibrant and unforgettable.
So many Scorsese moments have become part of film legend, from Travis Bickle’s altercation with his own reflection in Taxi Driver, Jake LaMotta’s run in with his brother in Raging Bull, to that tracking shot in Goodfellas, Marty’s movies burn images into your memory like no other.
Marty’s love of the movies is legendary and with his ode to the beginning of film, Hugo, out this week, it seemed a good time to look back at the great man’s back catalogue and pick out a top ten. There are some notable absentees from this list, but it’s always hard to narrow such a great body of work down to just 10 selections.
