    In my Steven Spielberg thread, someone mentioned that it would be a good idea to do this for other filmmakers with long careers. So let’s do Martin Scorsese next. And this time I made sure to add a poll to the thread. 🙂

    1970s
    “Boxcar Bertha”
    “Mean Streets”
    “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”
    “Taxi Driver”
    “New York, New York”
    “The Last Waltz”

    1980s
    “Raging Bull”
    “The King of Comedy”
    “After Hours”
    “The Color of Money”
    “The Last Tempration of Christ”

    1990s
    “Goodfellas”
    “Cape Fear”
    “The Age of Innocence”
    “Casino”
    “Kundun”
    “Bringing Out the Dead”

    2000s
    “Gangs of New York”
    “The Aviator”
    “No Direction Home: Bob Dylan” (a TV documentary, but I’ll count it)
    “The Departed”
    “Shine a Light”

    2010s
    “Shutter Island”
    “Public Speaking”
    “Hugo”
    “George Harrison: Living in the Material World”
    “The Wolf of Wall Street”
    Feel free to consider his Emmy-winning direction of the “Boardwalk Empire” pilot

    Like with Spielberg, I’m going with the 1980s. It feels like it’s him at his most consistently stimulating. It has maybe his greatest film (Raging Bull) his two most underrated features (The King of Comedy and After Hours), and one of the more intriguing films about faith and Jesus Christ (The Last Temptation of Christ). And The Color of Money is solid entertainment.

    This is kind of hard. Scorsese is very sporadic when it comes to pulling out consistent amazing movies. I would pick the 70’s for Alice and Taxi Driver, the 80’s for Bull and King of Comedy (Color of Money was solid), the 90’s weren’t his best years even though Cape Fear and Goodfellas are great (found Age boring), and Wall Street is his best this decade while Hugo is great and Shutter is very good. I would have to go with 2000’s because I think The Departed and Gangs of New York are his top 2 best movies and The Aviator is very good
