Martin Scorsese or David Lynch? Who Wins?
- Danny CLv 58 years agoFavourite answer
Scorsese's influence is impossible to overstate. His red-blooded canon has spawned a generation of copycats while his muscular style has become a template. That said, opinion is divided over the man's recent output. Some regard his monumental Gangs of New York as a classic to rank alongside Taxi Driver and Raging Bull. Others worry that the heavyweight champion of American movies is no longer quite punching his weight.
After all the discussion, no one could fault the conclusion that David Lynch is the most important film-maker of the current era. Providing a portal into the collective subconscious, the daydream nation conjured up in tales such as Blue Velvet, Lost Highway or Mulholland Drive is by turns frightening, exasperating, revelatory and wild. Nobody makes films like David Lynch. He is our spooky tour guide through a world of dancing dwarves, femme fatales and little blue boxes that may (or may not) contain all the answers. We wouldn't want to live in the places he takes us. Somehow, we suspect, we do.
I personally prefer Scorsese.

Definitely Martin Scorsese. He has done so many classics that will always be popular no matter how old it gets.

Scorcese all day. Lynch has no range. He only makes pretentious post modern, weird for the sake of weird, self indulgent pieces of ****. Scorcese is a legend who makes films that both critics and audiences can enjoy. Lynch makes films for first year film students.

David Lynch. Movies and music are described as "Lynchian" when they are influenced by his style. He has influenced movies, music, and art. The more I find about him the more interesting it gets. He is something else.
