Movies 30 Day Film Challenge - Day 6

Been a bit late with this today. It'll run for a full day though.

Today's Challenge:
Your favourite film, by your favourite Director

--

My Favourite Director is Martin Scorsese - He is an absolute film-making genius - Not only has he tackled a vast array of genres, he also has an eye for tip-top style in his pictures. There's a feel to them, that once buckled in you cannot mistake for anyone else.
My favourite film of his, is this - although, not an easy decision when all is said and done. This nonetheless cuts me deep every time I see it.

Goodfellas: -- One of my favourite scenes/bits of the film. Emphasising Tommy's manic derangement to a T.
YouTube - Goodfellas: The Spider situation

Well damn. Not only did you take mine, but I already used that one in another challenge thread.

OK well to add variety, I'll go with The Godfather. Scorsese is only my favorite director over Coppola by a very small margin, and only because Coppola has made some real crap. But his wines are fabulous, and Marty doesn't make wine. This is the best scene I could find; too many results on youtube. This has one of my favorite lines, though

YouTube - "Leave the gun, take the cannoli."

I would have picked the same director and one of those two films. So I will go with my next one which is Christopher Nolan.

And of course I will be going with Inception.

Can we pick the same movies as others? I'm confused.

It's a tie between Scorsese & Nolan... and a tie between The Departed & Inception.

Inglourious Basterds by Quentin Tarantino! I've loved basically all of his films but for me IB takes the cake.

Easy. Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream. Although Snatch from Guy Ritchie is a pretty close tie.

My favourite Director is Christopher Nolan so it will come as no surprise that I'll be re-choosing Memento. He does have a solid body of work though as well. His other highlights include Inception, The Dark Knight, The Prestige and Following.

You can pick same films yeah - It's your favourite, your choice.

That's a cracker of a choice Imp. Aronofsky is so talented.

It has a dark beauty and I'm still disturbed by it. I could do away with some too graphic for my taste scenes but I don't think they were overdone for the gore but it was just what was needed to convey the point made.
