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 Robert 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.
