Goodfellas (1990)

1990-goodfellas-poster1

Henry Hill and his friends work their way up through the mob hierarchy. (IMDb)

Magnificent in its epic scope, as seen both in its decades-long timeline and its lengthy, immersive scenes, thoughtfully written with loads of dialogue that goes beyond just plot-driving, building instead an authentic, enveloping world that yanks you along with Liotta’s engaging lead to every boisterous dinner party, roadside grave-digging, and mistress’ apartment (the coke-fueled adventures near the end are particularly wild). Great music and cool audio scene overlaps are also notable here.

8.4/10

  1. Concise and to the point of an awesome crime movie. However, (with some embarrassment) I have to admit though I liked it a lot, I didn’t love it. I found the movie very intense and interesting to watch. The plot is engaging and filled with action, the characters well depicted and has natural and nicely built dialogues (specially, when Pesci is around). However, I didn’t fin anything that makes it truly special. Particularly, I couldn’t find those things I loved from the later Scorsese’s movies.
