Which of these 25 movie titles is the best oneliner as a similie for the trademark of the adressed director? The movie doesn't need to be made by the director. The intended puns are made from the english title of the movie.

Well I need 13 other movie-director-combinations like the examples on the list. If I take one on the list and the 13 picks are reached, then it might be that someone give a better example so I will replace it. But anyway: Thank you for all suggestions. :D

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls042044626/

I like the idea of keeping other directors' film, you can find a non-Scorsese movie to describe Scorsese's style, his movies are always about sinners who try to repent with the criminal world as a backdrop.

The Bonfire of the Vanities entitles Brian De Palma -- really?
I've always thought it is Blow Out (1981) and Dressed to Kill (1980).

MAthePA:
It is Brian De Palma, yes. I think ElMo's suggestion is good.

ElM: That might be better. Do you think about a special movie for Scorsese?

A little add to the rules:
The movietitle should be from a movie which is not made by the director.
Try to find a movie title that is not from the adressed director.
I'm searching for a better movie title for Scorsese. The best title wins.

Breumaster, the idea is entertaining for sure. But the after-voting statistics should not be mentioned or analysed at all for this poll 8)

I'm hesitating to proceed with options, but I suggest to avoid the mixed concept, otherwise voters may be totally confused. You'd better use either the director presenting his movies, or the director entitled by others' movies. Not mixing the both.

I've re-done Martin Scorsese. There are two options now. One has to go. Which option would be the looser? I'll wait 2 days before deleting one option.

So for you The Godfather is the loser as I asked? The double 'o' still gives me troubles. ;D

"Apocalypse Now" describes ... Roland Emmerich? (Anyone better?)

Roland Emmerich is very fruitful for "apocalyptic" products. So, the idea is clear why "Apocalypse Now" is referenced as a title-phrase. But yes, the referenced plot is far to match.

I thought it was more about the title than the content of the film.

Thank you for the many suggestions. I think 'Apokalypse Now' is special good for Emmerich. Peter you're right. The title of any movie except one of the adressed directors for describing the trademark of the adressed director. The movie can be one which title does match with the main contents of the directors work.

My problem now is to decide between them both Emmerich-options.
I don't know which to take. I think them both are matching.
It's awfully clear how often Emmerich connects apocalyptic stories with the white house. ;D
