RIP Tony Scott, We Countdown His Top Ten Best Directed Films

We were very sorry to hear of the loss of Tony Scott, the filmmaker behind some of the most kinetic, badass, hyper-violent movies in Hollywood ever. The 68-year old British-born director and producer and younger brother to other Hollywood titan Ridley Scott, took his own life yesterday, jumping from a 185-foot high suspension bridge in Los Angeles. It’s a tremendous blow to anyone who loved watching movies edited at breakneck speed with flashy overexposure and a lot of explosions.

From the lesbian kiss between Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon in The Hunger to Denzel Washington shoving a grenade up a guy’s ass in Man on Fire, Scott’s films are full of memorable moments. And looking back over his resume, it’s nearly impossible to pick a single one film to call his best. But we’re going to try our damn hardest anyway.
