Martin Scorsese

The Greatest Movie

Of ALL TIME Is ...

We asked Martin Scorsese -- possibly the greatest movie director who ever lived -- what his favorite film is ... AND THE GUY ACTUALLY ANSWERED.

Scorsese was out in NYC Monday night -- and we popped the question right as he was getting into his car. It's pretty awesome.

Check out the clip for Marty's answer -- but here are some hints ... the flick was produced in Technicolor ... and the protagonist has a crippling fear of heights.

Nice spam filter, TMZ. Almost as effective as your LIKE / HATE comment system.

The greatest movie of all time is without a doubt The Wizard of Oz.

Hey Harvey, what ever happened to Jason Russell the Koni 2012 advocate? After his public meltdown he was put on that psychiatric hold, but all coverage stopped and no follow up on his story by the media..... any clue on how he's doing?

You people are such azzsholes at TMZ. At which point exactly did Marty say it was his favorite film? To quote: "I like Vertigo a lot." I mean, I like sushi a lot too but it's not my favorite food. Marty rules.

Marty is responding to the just-released Sight & Sound list of the greatest films of all time, where Vertigo replaced Citizen Kane as the best film for the first time in the list's history. They take a poll of directors and film critics every ten years. Ah, just Google it....

Nothing. Not until the awesome Kim K makes a feature film, no film can take that claim. Only Kim K future movie will rule for all time.

Martin knows whats up. If you were to ask Harvey Levin and the rest of the TMZ crew what the greatest movie of all time is you would get some stupid answer like Footloose.
