    Hitchcock : Rear Window. A perfect blend of cinematography and character study.

    Scorsese : Goodfellas. It's raw power is undeniable, and it's ability to pull the rug out from under you at the most unexpected moment is remarkable.

    Hmmmm. Favorite and why.

    Scorsese : Goodfellas. It's has depth and a breadth of storytelling that I truly enjoyed. The performances are dead on, and the blocking just outstanding. Not to mention, the million quotable, pitch-perfect delivery lines. Scorsese allowed his actors to truly inhabit the characters. There's not a mis-step among them.

    Hitchcock : Lifeboat. I'm not sure why this is my favorite Hitch film, but it is. Something about 99% of it taking place on a small watercraft, but not feeling so much claustrophobic, but just so tension filled. It's my favorite Tallulah Bankhead performance.

    Scorsese - I think my personal favorite would be Shutter Island.

    Hitchcock - There's so many that I love. But my two favorites would probably be Rear Window and Rebecca. When it comes to those two it's hard for me to pick one over the other.

    that is exactly why I said The Lady Vanishes. Or else I would have to think of about a dozen others, in addition to those two

    Scorcese: Raging Bull. Of all Scorsese's films that I've seen, I think Raging Bull sticks with me the most. The psychological turmoil is extremely powerful to watch, and is something that I think he nailed at the time but wasn't able to get back for years afterwards.

    Hitchcock: Rear Window. Hitchcock's ability to make you feel completely safe and then completely trapped and terrified within the same apartment over the course of 2 hours is something that still amazes me after at least 15 viewings.
    I had my infatuations, but we both know in our hearts who is the sole love of my short, bright life.

    Hitchcock: You can hardly go wrong. He's such a great director, so many absolute classics.
    I'm gonna say Shadow of a Doubt, 'cause I'm weird like that, but it's tough to choose.

    Scorsese: The Last Temptation of Christ. Everyone thinks this film is no big deal when they look at it objectively. Hogwash.

    I'd list the entire Hitchcok filmography. But out of that I'd point out Psycho, Rear Window, The Strangers on a Train, Rope, Dial M for Murder, North by Northwest, Vertigo, The Birds, The Lady Vanishes, Rebecca... Need I go on? The greatest director if ever there was one.

    Scorsese - Goodfellas

    Hitch - everyone who's a Hitch fan is gonna be mad at me but I really watch The Birds over and over again, way more than any other Hitch movie, and I have seen so many

    What everyone has said, plus The Man Who Knew Too Much (both versions); and, of course, Lifeboat and Rebecca (that have both already been mentioned).

    If I might just interject here - I did really like North by Northwest ... I know some people consider it their favorite just because it's a very dramatic role by Cary Grant. A lot of people think of Cary Grant and think light-comedy, so seeing him in such a dramatic role, it makes the part stand out.

    I love him, too, but there's Suspicion, for example, which I think is way more interesting than NbNW

    I'm don't know if I'd call it more interesting, but I did like Suspicion a lot. Great parts for Grant and Fontaine.

    I liked the story in NbNW, and thought it was captivating. And I thought it was very well directed, just for those iconic scenes ( Mount Rushmore and the crop duster ) actually.
