Aside from all his directing, he also founded this

Hugo is comfortably his most underrated film (possibly his best of the 21st century?). The Wolf of Wall Street is one of the worst films I’ve ever seen.

The guy’s made at least half a dozen classics, one of the all-time greats

I’ve not seen Alice Doesnt Live Here anymore for years and years

Remember it being good - seems to have been forgotten these days

Great - Cape fear, taxi driver, king of comedy
Fine - the irishman, the departed
Shit - goodfellas, gangs of new York, wolf of Wall Street, shutter island

Want to see - raging bull, casino

i like him. i do not like the “he makes films about bad people therefore he condones their actions” discourse that you often see online

Watched Taxi Driver for the first time last week. Thought the first third of it was amazing, proper sucked you into that New York scene - the rest of it was fine.

Silence is the only film I’ve ever fallen asleep to in the cinema. That’s not a dig at the film, I was just extremely tired and it was such a slow, quiet film. Andrew Garfield’s hair stole the show tbh

Arguably the most overrated director of all time

Wolf of Wall Street, Shutter Island and The Irishman are 3 absolutely honking bottle of the barrel films

If I wasn’t trying to score indie points - The Departed and Gangs of New York are his best, most entertaining films.

Found shutter island genuinely hilarious in fairness to it.

Loved the HONK HONK HONK BAD SERIOUS HONK soundtrack.

Cape Fear is the best scorcese film because it leans in to being incredibly silly and embraces it. A lot of his other films are inherently very silly but take themselves too seriously
