In the spirit of the Coen Brother thread which I enjoy, another thread for another film maker that has his share of quality films, to say the least.

These are films that Scorsese directed, (no shorts or tv documentaries)

"I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I'm here to cluckin' amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?"

+1 for Joe Pesci's best role ever...

+ Gangs of New York... the film responsible for my love of Daniel Day-Lewis. When the film was first conceived, Scorsese wanted to cast John Belushi as `The Butcher'. The movie was shelved after Belushi died.

Jon Patrick says:
If there are not going to be Scorsese's documentaries or short films included, I understand, but what about his first feature -- 1967's 'Who's That Knocking at My Door' ?
And 1989's 'Life Lessons' is arguably a feature more than a short, although only around 40 or 45 minutes long.

+ The King of Comedy. Which features some of the members of The Clash in street cameo, who Scorsese wanted to play an integral part in 'The Gangs of New York', if he made it in the '80s as originally planned.

Kevin Beirne says:
I wrote a review of The Departed a couple years back, and one thing I pointed out is that it is better than Goodfellas.

What I really meant by that, is the more modern dramatization of the plot was better, I thought. Leo gettin in real deep with these sinister, cold blooded mafia types and tryin to keep his head straight all the while.

I made it very clear that it is indeed close - but The Departed is better.

In hindsight - I must say although The Departed is an awesome flick (I love it), Goodfellas cannot be topped. To me anyways, Liotta was just perfect in that role,and Deniro and Pesci - I mean, those two are awesome in that flick.

Love the scene when Liotta pistol whips his lady's neighbor for roughin her up....

Years ago my wife hosted a 70's dress-up party. One fella came dressed as Travis Bickle - old green army jacket, black boots, mohawk. I was chatting with "Travis" and another fella, when the other fella starting being outright rude to "Travis" who walked away, not wanting to start anything. I asked the fella why he was being rude, and he said something like, "I don't like Nazis."

Jon Patrick says:
Good thing "Travis" wasn't inspired by 'The Night Porter' or 'Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS' at this costume party. At a costume party no less!
There was so much Nazisploitation in the '70s, it's confounding that anyone would confuse poor Travis's getup for the Neo kind. It's not like he had red laces on the boots or a swastika tattoo.

Vote Palantine. We ARE the People.

Yeah. It actually took me about a minute to work out what he meant!

I then reminded him that the hostess invited him, and that the hostess WAS BLACK! Not too many multi-cultural Nazi get-togethers, I would have thought.
