Taxi Driver

Taxi Driver has been called one of the greatest movies ever made. A disturbing film with an incredible central performance by Robert De Niro as a taxi driver and U.S. Marine veteran. Scorsese does not flinch from showing a dark and seedy (and frequently violent) underbelly of 1970s New York City. The film won the prestigious Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

Trailer for Martin Scorsese's film starring Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci, Lorraine Bracco, and Paul Sorvino.

Dan the Info-man
Joe Pesci won a Best Actor in a Supporting Role Oscar for his pivotal turn as Tommy DeVito.

GoodFellas

The life of Henry Hill and his involvement in organized crime was brought to the big screen in an iconic film from Scorsese. An impressive cast (including Samuel L. Jackson as Parnell "Stacks" Edwards) combined with a gripping story to create this must-watch film. Joe Pesci delivers a powerhouse performance as an armed robber who inevitably comes to a grizzly end.

Dan the Info-man
Henry Hill was a mob informant to the FBI. Fifty convictions were made on Hill's testimony.

Hugo (2011)

From Academy Award Winner, Martin Scorsese, comes Hugo, the astonishing adventure of a wily and resourceful boy.

Dan the Info-man
Hugo starred Asa Butterfield as Hugo Cabret, Chloë Grace Moretz as Isabelle and Ben Kingsley as Georges Méliès / Papa Georges.

Hugo

Many of Scorsese's films deal with the criminal underworld, or topics that are violent or distinctly adult in theme. Hugo was a departure film for Scorsese, about a machine-fixing lonely boy living in a train station in Paris. It is whimsical, sweet, moving and demonstrates the director's obvious passion for cinematic history.

The image shows Martin Scorsese offering direction to Sacha Baron Cohen, who plays Inspector Gustave Dasté.

Mean Streets (1973)

Trailer for Martin Scorsese's film starring Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, David Proval, Amy Robinson and Richard Romanus.

Dan the Info-man
It's a pretty safe bet for a good film when Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese combine their talents!

Mean Streets

The word "gritty" can be aptly used to describe Mean Streets. Charlie Cappa (Harvey Keitel) wants to rise (or sink) in the murky depths of the NYC criminal world but his reckless friend Johnny Boy (Robert De Niro) will become more of a hindrance than a help!

Dan the Info-man
Scorsese played the part of Jimmy Shorts in Mean Streets, a mobster hitman of sorts!

Raging Bull (1980)

An emotionally self-destructive boxer's journey through life, as the violence and temper that leads him to the top in the ring, destroys his life outside it.

Dan the Info-man
Robert De Niro won an Oscar for his outstanding and visceral performance as Jake LaMotta.

Raging Bull

There are films about sport - and then there is Raging Bull. One of the greatest films of all time, this moving and frequently harrowing biography of Jake LaMotta is gripping cinema from start to finish. De Niro actually trained with the real LaMotta to give a punishing and convincing performance.

Dan the Info-man
Jake LaMotta became World Middleweight Champion in 1949. He was known for his ability to soak up an opponent's punches!

Don't forget...

The Last Waltz, The Departed, The King of Comedy, The Color of Money, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, The Aviator, Silence, Casino, The Last Temptation of Christ and The Age of Innocence to truly get a good grasp of Martin Scorsese's incredible body of work!
