One might ask: What are the best Martin Scorsese films? And though there are many opinions about the matter, below are four of the best works by Mr. Scorsese.
In 2006, Scorsese won an Oscar for his movie The Departed. Some people think that he should have won earlier but this movie is an example of how great he is. The story revolves around the simple premise of a good cop against a bad cop. The insights on the dirty trade take different twists and turns in a well constructed production. The actors that Scorsese got for the film are excellent as well; he got Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson. The star-studded cast alone is a sure hit for fans; but what they considered as the crowning jewel is how the story was played out.
