Goodfellas

Martin Scorsese’s mafia masterpiece and a crowning achievements of the crime genre, chronicles the true story of gangster turned informant Henry Hill (Ray Liotta). Also stars Joe Pesci (who won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar) and Rober De Niro.

From voiceover to macho black humour, freeze frames to intricate camera movement, every cinematic technique available is blended to create an intoxicating viewing experience that draws on the entire history of the movie gangster. Liotta delivered a career-best performance as Hill, Pesci deservedly won an Oscar for his portrayal of one of the most fearsome psychopaths ever and De Niro was De Niro. The soundtrack is infectious and the story itself riveting, featuring both classic gangster pay-offs and original re-workings of those standard tropes.

Winner of the Best Supporting Actor Oscar (Joe Pesci), 1991. Winner of the Silver Lion for Best Direction at Venice Film Festival 1990. Best Film, BAFTA Awards 1991.

Simultaneously fascinating and repellent, Goodfellas is Martin Scorsese's colorful but dramatically unsatisfying inside look at Mafia life in 1955-1980 New York City.

Joe Pesci's psycho killer Tommy steals the limelight, but repeated viewing lets you appreciate just how good everybody else is too. New members of Scorsese's gang (Lorraine Bracco, Paul Sorvino) slip into character seamlessly, while Ray Liotta (in only his sixth film) will never be this superb again.

No finer film has ever been made about organized crime - not even "The Godfather."

A tour de force that brilliantly evokes both the seductive glamour and moral degradation of organised crime.
