Scorsese is truly one of the finest directors of the last 50 years. His films excite and inspire me with every viewing. Raging Bull is a personal favorite, because it implores all of his most recognizable motifs. Catholic underlying themes, the internal battle of man between God and sin, the way he depicts women, all provide a truly interesting backdrop for the story he chooses to tell. Great article.

Raging Bull review: a character study for the ages

I loved Scorsese’s take on the reckless turmoil that the American Dream has spiraled into. My first viewing of the trailer made me both excited and energized, something I have felt from very few previews these days. Scorsese is, was, and always will be my favorite director.

After viewing Wolf quite a number of times, and speaking to other that saw it, I was shocked at how many people despised the crude vulgar imagery Belfort surrounded himself with in the film. I thought it was one of Scorsese’s best of recent years. The pure unadulterated energy seeping from every scene electrified my viewing experience and made me crave more. I love the film, and great article!

I can still remember the first time I read Howl and how it honestly shook me. To this day, I have found few other poems that have really evoked that type of reaction by it’s power and keen word use.

Hoffman is one of the finest actors of the last few decades. Capote and Boogie Nights are my personal favorites and I was glad to see then included on this ‘best of’ list!

I think Interstellar has the potential to be one of the greatest films of 2014. Nolan plus the new McConaughey? Recipe for success.

I too think the “Fancy” video is truly one of the best this year! Iggy’s perfect replication really was perfect timing with the resurge of 90s nostalgia coming around various aspects anymore: fashion, music, etc all have notes of the not too long ago era.
