Martin Scorsese

Rope of Silicon's David Frank posted his top ten Martin Scorsese films this morning, in honor of Shutter Island opening in two days hence. He goes Goodfellas at #1, Bringing Out the Dead at #2 and Taxi Driver #3. His full list is here.

Okay, I'll play along. My Top 5 Scorsese:
1. Raging Bull (1980)
2. Taxi Driver (1976)
3. Goodfellas (1990)
4. The Aviator (2004)
5. Mean Streets (1973)


  1. I just don't see Bringing Out the Dead as his best effort, or 2nd, 3rd, or 4th.

  2. Neither do I, it's a strange choice, but I laud the originality, if nothing else.

  3. Hey Chase, just a heads up:

    That article was written by David Frank, not Brad Brevet. Frank writes pieces for RopeofSilicon every once in a while.

  4. Slight plug and preview of coming attractions: Big Mike Mendez and I will be rhyming off our Scorsese Top Fives in the next episode of my Matineecast, going up on Monday morning!

  5. @Danny- Thanks. Of course I didn't even look, just assumed it was Brevet. It even sounded like him as I read it. Fixed.

  6. Yeah I know the feeling. I always jump to that assumption, but Brad is usually quick to point it out in the comments section.
