Teenagers who have only seen Scorsese's most recent films shouldn't even be allowed to vote on this. The Departed is great, but certainly nowhere not his second best film. Scorsese himself regards it as a middle of the road entry in his filmography (though I actually think it is up there), and Gangs of New York beating Raging Bull is just insane!

Goodfellas, Taxi Driver, and Raging Bull should be the top three. IMO, that isn't even disputable. Two of them are there. Just switch out The

My personal top 5:
5. The Departed
4. Gangs of New York
3. Goodfellas
2. Raging Bull
1. Taxi Driver

Taxi Driver

I usually put Taxi Driver in my top 5 alltime. Raging Bull would've been a close second.

this poll could easily have been broken up in to different periods of his career. I had a tough choice to make. Taxi Driver is just not the world I live in - no matter how good it is, so I didn't vote for that one. The world isn't as disconnected as it was in that film. We still have a lot of evil, but now it sneaks around like The Departed.

I voted Goodfellas.

Dude. Seriously?

TAXI DRIVER being beaten out by THE DEPARTED? A masterpiece original movie with a cinematic icon against Scorsese's remake of another movie? Whatever all you young people are smoking, I do not want to share any.

Aww, there's no "I don't like Scorsese films" option.

Well.

The one I've least-disliked so far has been THE DEPARTED. A pretty simple, nicely-done cop drama/suspense film, nothing more. Here's to hoping that SHUTTER ISLAND is just that as well, if not also a good adaptation of the pretty awesome novel.

I'd probably say Goodfellas is his best and most epic film. Raging Bull is his most well rounded and beautifully made film. Taxi Driver is his most groundbreaking. The Aviator and Gangs of New York are his most commercial, minor successes. The King of Comedy and After Hours are extremely underrated comedies though. But where's "Who's That Knocking At My Door?" That's where it all began and it's a good first film.

Its hard to pick just 1 since the majority of his movies I've seen have all been amazing. But if I had to choose 1, it will be Taxi Driver.

Goodfellas is one of those movies I can watch over and over again. I even have some traditions with it - including a best hits of Elvis and pasta sauce (don't ask). But if I had to pick a favorite, I'd just have to go with The Aviator. Everything from the music to the look, the acting to the directions - it's just so epic and beautiful.

And a good movie about making movies? CHECKPOINT!

Unfortunate

The fact that "Last Temptation" only has 2 votes as of now saddens me.

Let the nailing begin but I still can't understand the love for The Departed and Taxi Driver. The Departed is a slightly above average movie and JUST average for Scorcese. I rented Taxi Driver last year and I found it to be oddball drivel. The score was great and DeNiro was standout but the film itself, to me, may be one of the most over-rated movies next to Scarface.....Please be fragile with your bashing.

I have more love for Casino, Goodfellas (naturally), and Gangs of New York. I really

I didn't like The Departed either. Or Scarface. Taxi Driver however is a special movie. Watch it again. If you didn't feel anything or get any sort of clues then read a bit about it, not too much, then watch it again. I dunno. That movie is just a rare gem. I miss movies like this.

Bringing out the Dead was similar, to me. A bit more extroverted but similar.

Why the mention of Scarface ? Its a Brian De Palma flick.

Goodfellas will win this easily and rightfully so, but the tough choice would be my second favorite. probably the departed, but it's nice to see after hours getting a little love.
