3 of the Best Scorsese Films

When it comes to movies, everyone always remembers the story, the action and of course, the actors. The person behind the camera and much of the filmmaking process, the director, is often lost in the scale of it all. While the best directors in the industry are well-known, many other directors fail to be recognised for the creative direction that they take the film in. This notion may not be true for critics and those who call themselves film enthusiasts, but it is certainly correct for causal film watchers. On the other hand, if there is one director that everyone has heard of before, it's Martin Scorsese.

Scorsese made a name for himself with his violent depictions of American culture and one only must look at his repertoire of films to see how this might be the case. He is fascinated with capturing the gritty reality of life, which is why he seems to have a penchant for creating gangster films. There are over 20 films that have been directed by Scorsese, and each of them have been released to critical acclaim, some albeit, more than others. Those who are new to his works might want to get a taste of what Scorsese is about, so here are some of his best films.

Goodfellas

It is hard to think of a film that can top the epic Godfather, but Scorsese’s Goodfellas certainly comes close. Many people might remember this movie for its ultraviolent effects or Joe Pesci’s superb acting in the role of the typical ‘angry man’, but Goodfellas should be remembered for more than just this. The film tells the story of an aspiring mobster who has a twisted ideal of the American Dream, and chronicles how he slowly become disillusioned with that ideal when he gets more than he bargained for. This film is considered by most to be Scorsese’s best.

Casino

This is a film that arrived after Goodfellas became a massive box office hit, so it was naturally compared to that film. It featured a similar epic gangster story and even had some of the same actors, but it is different in that its ending is arguably better. The story revolves around the dealings of a mobster in Las Vegas – a haven for gambling. Although many people enjoy travelling to Las Vegas to play at some of the casinos there, many more likely prefer playing online and Time2play provides expert analysis of where the best places to play on the web are.

The Wolf of Wall Street

In 2013, Scorsese proved that he still has it when he came out with this raving success. It tells the true story of a self-made man, Jordan Belfort, and how he made his success by conning innocent people. The film shows how power and wealth can corrupt and make even the most upstanding people morally indecent. However, by the end of the film, Belfort gets his just desserts.

These are some of Scorsese greatest films, and they also happen to be some of the greatest films to ever hit screens too. One can only guess at what the esteemed director has planned next.
