Martin Scorsese named his list of the 15 best films of all time

Martin Scorsese recently spoke to the film magazine “Sight and Sound”. The director indicated a list of 15 films that he considers the best productions of all time.

Martin Scorsese has been a critic of contemporary cinema for years. A year ago, he complained about contemporary cinema during the New York Film Festival. He stated that the tendency to look at the popularity and earnings numbers of a film, rather than focusing on the film itself, has been going on since the early 1980s. So I guess you won’t be surprised that his list of the best films of all time does not include more contemporary productions.

Scorsese’s full list of his favourite films of all time:

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
8 ½ (1963)
Ashes And Diamonds (1958)
Citizen Kane (1941)
Diary Of A Country Priest (1951)
Ikiru (1952)
The Leopard (1963)
Ordet (1955)
Paisan (1946)
The Red Shoes (1948)
The River (1951)
