Martin Scorsese’s 39 Foreign Films To Watch Before You Die

Take this list with a pinch of salt, because so far we only have Reddit‘s word for it. The story goes like this: young filmmaker Colin Levy wrote to his hero Martin Scorsese several years ago, asking which films he should see in order to broaden his cinematic horizons. Scorsese’s assistant sent over a list of 39 foreign films that the director had personally recommended, along with the following note:

Mr. Scorsese asked that I sent this your way. This should be a jump start to your film education!

Here is the list. How many of these films have you seen? Does the list seem to fit with Scorsese’s own style? And why is Thai masterpiece The Adventures of Iron Pussy not included?
