What's a Nice Girl Like You Doing in a Place Like This?
Martin Scorsese Movie Favorites
Martin Scorsese was 25 years old when he directed his first movie Who's That Knocking at My Door? Watch it and you will see his cinematic style already forming.
Martin Scorsese's first collaboration with Robert DiNiro Mean Streets It was a break through movie for both of them.
The bet you could win a in a bar. Who directed Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore? No it's not a "Martin Scorsese movie" it's not set in New York, the protaganist is a woman but he did direct it and you will enjoy this story about second chances.
Taxi Driver is a movie about a mentally ill lonely man named Travis Bickle driving a cab in the very mean streets of New York City.
Martin Scorsese read boxer Jake Lamotta's memoirs and turned them into an intense flawlessly directed movie Raging Bull. Masterpiece and brilliant are some of the words used to describe it.
Possibly Martin Scorsese's most underrated film.. The King of Comedy was ahead of its time with a very dark take on celebrity worship.
One you might have missed. You will be glad that you are snuggled safe in your house when you watch poor Griffin Dunn have a very very bad night when everything goes wrong when he tries to meet up with a woman After Hours
Henry Hill always wanted to be a gangster. Goodfellas is the story of his life in the mob. This is Martin Scorsese at the top of his form as a director.
Yes it's New York but it's New York in the late 1800's a time of rules and codes of behavior that were not to be broken. The Age of Innocence is an elegant movie about forbidden love.
Yes it's very violent, but we could probably put that caveat in front of practically all of Martin Scorsese movies. Casino is the story of Las Vegas and the mob and there's not a way to tell that story in a nonviolent way.
Kundun means The Presence which is how the people of Tibet refer to the Dalai Lama. This is the story of the fourteenth Dalai Lama who still lives in exile from Tibet..
Violence Alert. Long movie alert. Great epic movie alert. Gangs of New York. Martin Scorsese revisits New York in the late 1800's but this time it's a different part of town.
The biography of Howard Hughes as told by Martin Scorsese The Aviator. Have fun deciding which actors do the best portrayals of the real life stars. Cate Blanchette as Katherine Hepburn?
Finally an Oscar for Mr. Scorsese's mantel. The Departed Two men are both undercover on opposite sides of the law.
