Martin Scorsese movies: All 24 films, ranked worst to best, including ‘Goodfellas,’ ‘Raging Bull,’ ‘Taxi Driver’
Martin Scorsese celebrates his 76th birthday on November 17, 2018. While the Oscar-winning director is perhaps best known for his violent and psychologically complex gangster pictures, he’s found success in a variety of other genres as well. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at all 24 of his films, ranked worst to best.

After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Scorsese directed the independently-financed “Who’s That Knocking at My Door?” (1967), which introduced Harvey Keitel.

Anne Marie has been chronicling Judy Garland's career chronologically through musical numbers...

This Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for the simple things. This series (like Tfe as a whole) has been a classic cinephile sanctuary for me this year. As the outside world has spun out, sped up, slammed down, and generally tossed us around, I’ve really enjoyed sharing music and tidbits of trivia with you all this week, and reading your reactions/stories/controversies – even when I haven’t been able to reply myself. So briefly, before we get to this beautiful solo number, I just want to thank Nathaniel & you, the Tfe readers, for continuing to create a lively, loving community.

Actress Bethune Dies In Hit-and-run Horror
American actress Zina Bethune has died at the age of 66 following a hit-and-run horror in Los Angeles.

The screen and stage star, who appeared in Martin Scorsese's first feature film Who's That Knocking At My Door, died in the early hours of Monday morning after she was struck by two vehicles while trying to help an injured animal.

Bethune had pulled her car over in Forest Lawn Drive and was crossing the road to help the stricken creature when the first vehicle struck her, catapulting her body onto the opposite carriageway.

The actress was then struck by a second car, which dragged her body 600 feet (182 metres). Cops believe the driver of the second vehicle failed to stop after the accident.

Bethune was a talented dancer who performed for the New York City Ballet before moving into acting. She enjoyed roles in various U.S TV dramas including The Guiding Light, The Nurses, Police Story, Planet of the Apes, Route 66, and CHiPs.
