5. The Last Temptation of Christ - I was eighteen when I saw it and didn't really see "it" coming. Left an impression on me as to how you can take a quite well known story and find another angle to it.

4. Casino - It was amazing to me how Scorcese took a character like Nicky (Pesci) build him up to be the worst kind of psychopath that you just want to see go out and then when he does, you feel terrible for him.

3. Taxi Driver - I think in the decades since, this is still DeNiro's master work.

2. The Departed - Great storytelling. Lived in characters. I just love this movie. The brutality of the third act is so oppressive that you just want it to end...and then Mark Wahlberg appears and it brings a smilke to your face.

1. Goodfellas - Forget a "Scorcese" List...it's at the top of just about any list!

Just watched Bringing out the dead, what a weird flick! Enjoyed it more and more as it went along.

Great film, remember seeing it in a cinema with about three other people: sobering, surreal and often hilarious movie, very underrated in the grand scheme of things.

I think that Bringing Out the Dead is quite underrated in the Scorcese canon. I really like the structure of Paul Schrader's screenplay. The action takes place over three days--and there's that obvious and typical Scorsese religious angle ("On the third day, he rose again..") But what is really terrific and interesting to me is the way Cage's three different paramedic partners represent three different stages in Cage's life and his job as paramedic: John Goodman just wants to do his job, have his own ambulance company, etc. He represents the man Cage once was, full of idealism and hope. Ving Rhames is Cage of the present, trying to keep his head above the madness--and his sanity--when nothing goes right. And Tom Sizemore--in a hilariously unhinged performance--is the man Cage seems destined to become, a completely psychotic lunatic, getting into fights and smashing ambulances for fun.

Give this film about 10 more years, and folks will re-evaluate it and call it another Scorsese masterpiece. [Smile]

1. Goodfellas
2. Taxi Driver
3. Raging Bull
4. Mean Streets
5. Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore

Honorable mentions that didn't quite make the cut: After Hours, The King Of Comedy, Bringing Out The Dead, Casino, and Cape Fear.

I have not seen: The Age Of Innocence, New York New York, The Gangs Of New York, Shutter Island, Hugo, Kundun, The Last Temptation Of Christ, Who's That Knocking On My Door (his debut), or Boxcar Bertha (a low-budget movie he made for Roger Corman).

Sorry, but I was not impressed with The Aviator, The Color Of Money, or The Departed (even though he finally won a Best Director Oscar)
