Joe,

This is a run-on sentence:
Paul Schrader is one of the best scriptwriters of the cinema, in his youth he wrote great films that today are great classics and has also served as a director with very good works.

Please change the comma after cinema to period. Also, break up the sentence into three shorter sentence:
Paul Schrader is one of the best scriptwriters of the cinema. In his youth he wrote great films that today are great classics. Schrader has also served as a director with very good works.

With every poll that you make, I become more certain that we're kindred spirits in film. : )
A good writer, Paul Schrader. My vote: 'Taxi Driver,' 'Affliction,' or maybe 'First Reformed.' 

May I suggest a few small edits to the intro? (in bold below)

Oh, I just realized Dan's note above. His suggested edits work just as well as mine. Both his version and mine correct the little errors that result in a run-on sentence.

Hi Joe, this poll would qualify to be a candidate for the home page if either Dan's edits or mine are made.
