Live Poll: 25 Movie Titles Describing Big Directors' Trademarks

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

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.

I think it might be a good idea to link directors pages in the descriptions of items to vote. That could be done by using the link script: [link=URL goes here]Director's Name[/link].

FYC: 
Alfred Hitchcock - A Face in the Crowd (1957) (often appears in a brief cameo in most of his movies)
Albert Pyun - Cyborg (1989) (a rare case of his own movie; this guy really loves cyborgs)

The title should probably have an apostrophe here:

25 Movie Titles Describing Big Directors' Trademarks

In the question, the English spelling is "simile", but maybe you could simplify the question like this:

Which of these 25 movie titles is the best match for a director's trademark?

Hi Breu, 'good poll! My vote will probably go to Scorsese and The Godfather.

Could you capitalize the "e" in "english" (to English) in the intro and option #6? Thanks! : )
