Everyone’s favorite movies are different. My top picks include Steven Seagal flick, an obscure wing-nut comedy that’s never officially been released on DVD, and a badass Korean thriller. That’s part of the fun of being a movie fan, the endless debate about the merits of one picture or the other.

Time Out New York recently polled a bunch of actors and compiled a list of the top 100 movies of all time, and while that’s too extensive a list for us to go through here, we’re down to tackle the top ten. To compile their list, they asked a bunch of actors what they think the greatest movie of all is, and when they tallied the results, they’re not exactly what you expect. Some you would guess, others, not so much. The participants include such varied talents as Bill Hader, Juliette Binoche, Lili Taylor, Anthony Mackie, Stephen Merchant, and dozens more. Click HERE to see the entire, wildly diverse list, and see what each participant put down at their top choices.

Taxi Driver
10. Taxi Driver
Martin Scorsese had to have a spot in the top ten, and few movies on his CV are as beloved and celebrated across the board as 1976’s Taxi Driver. Maybe the defining Robert De Niro performance in a career of them, the film won the Palme D’or at Cannes and hasn’t stopped accumulating acclaim since. Routinely cited as one of the greatest movies of all time, it has elements of noir, a vigilante narrative, psychological thriller, and more, and has become a true cultural touchstone. Even those who have never seen the movie know the infamous, "You talking to me?" scenario.
