Director: Martin Scorsese
“ Scorcesse is in the same list of the best 10 of the whole history.his film belongs all the way up there as well, but, i still have to be frank about the other two films as more gutsy than Hugo.his directorial is really again magnificant. ” - tedimorgen
Hitler's Grave (2010)

Young Islamic woman whose brother is tortured to death during the Iranian elections goes to Berlin to fulfill two promises made to her brother on his deathbed. (90 mins.)
Director: Daryush Shokof
“ Daryush Shokof is also one of those unfortunate stories such as the one with Terrence, but, his obsession and dedication to the arts and creativity let him stand the incredible odds against him through so many years as he continued to surprise us with fresh,original and taboo breaking concepts almost every year.he belongs in the list of the greatest Cult Directors but his "Hitler's Grave" lands a near Classic very untypical from all his other works.i would even give the film rank number one, if it had to do with which film stands tallest from guts and power of concept.he has done a wonderful movie that deserves at least 2 for Original script and another for the Best film. ” - tedimorgen
