Goodfellas (1990)

Based on Nicholas Pileggi's book WISEGUY, Martin Scorsese?s GOODFELLAS is a wry, violent, and exhilarating film about the life of Henry Hill, an aspiring criminal who ends up in the FBI?s witness protection program after testifying against his former partners. As a poor Irish-Italian growing up in 1950s New York City, Hill rises through the ranks of his Brooklyn neighborhood's organized crime branch, and with money from the mob he begins living the good life, complete with a beautiful bride, Karen (Lorraine Brocco), a fancy home, and the best seats at the most exclusive restaurants. A botched robbery lands Henry in prison for a brief period of time, and when he gets released, his reckless infidelities and drug abuse damage his associations with his adopted family. More »

    This is the greatest gangster movie of all time. Scorcese is a master at what he does.

    in my top 5 movies i LOVE this movie - Scorsese made me believe in religion > he IS god!

    this film is AMAZING: some of the shots are truly groundbreaking, the acting is amazing (Pesce is unbelievably scarey, heck even the opening scene is shocking (and shockingly good)

    this is certainly a movie that any gangster movie fan (and any real movie fan) must see
