interesting on the departed pick. on imdb a lot of folks had it in their top 3 for scorsese as well. i liked it well enough but not nearly as much as raging bull, taxi driver, the color of money. actually i liked the aviator better than the departed. just my opinion though.

Now I have to replace Welles, as I'm yet to see The Magnificent Ambersons. Screw it. I'll watch the two movies of his I have seen over just any other director's top 3 I can think of.

New list:
Alfred Hitchcock
North By Northwest
Notorious
Vertigo

Orson Welles
Citizen Kane
Touch of Evil

Francis Ford Coppola
Apocalypse Now
The Godfather
The Godfather Part 2

No love for "Rope" from the Hitchcock pimps? That's my favorite film of his.

Says the guy who has the audacity to omit Raging Bull for Scorsese.

(Rope is one of my favorite Hitchcock movies too, but I'd at least have to put The Lady Vanishes and Notorious ahead of it; probably Psycho too.)

Thank you, Mr. Late to the party :salute:

No, it was already pointed out to me. I'm actually ashamed that I messed that up. However, for the record I will say that The Third Man is the best old-school film noir ever. Even though I may have said that in some other thread.
