What about "The Last Waltz"? I've heard it should be one of the best documentaries ever made.

...have anyone seen it?

You heard wrong. The cinematography and score alone are worth watching.

I saw it a while ago and I swear I don't remember a word that was said in that movie or anything about the plot. Very boring. Or maybe I just wasn't paying attention cause I think my Scorsese grudge was at a high point.

Two people voted for Casino...in reality, a good movie, interesting if you get the chance to see it on USA...but, it seems like they were deciding between Goodfellas and Casino, as if Taxi Driver didn't exist, I love everything about that movie.

Kundun is a wonderful film! Okay, if you are expecting the classic Scorsese 'as far as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster- are you talking to me?' -cue Jumpin Jack Flash- cut to fast dolly in on Henry doing coke- kind of movie you might be disappointed. It's not that kind of a movie. Mac is right, the visuals and score are amazing! (shot by Roger Deakins- one of the best DPs working today, score by Philip Glass)

Sadly enough, I've only seen Casino (which rocks), Goodfellas (which also rocks), and Gangs of New York (which wasn't half bad). I think I saw Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore and liked it. Was that with Ellen Burstyn?

Though Taxi Driver is in my top five favorite films of all time i have to give a shout out to Mean Streets which is just such an amazing film especially for scorsese's use of music in the film.
"There is no point in having sharp images when you've fuzzy ideas."

[Scorsese on sports] "Anything with a ball, no good."

"Anyone who has ever been privileged to direct a film also knows that, although it can be like trying to write 'War and Peace' in a bumper car in an amusement park, when you finally get it right, there are not many joys in life that can equal the feeling."
-Stanley Kubrick

This poll has served to remind me how many good films I haven't seen.  Until I see the rest, Casino.  Cranium in a vice, that's good stuff.

Actually, I love that movie. I also love Raging Bull and Taxi Driver.
