1990. USA. Directed by Martin Scorsese. Screenplay by Scorsese, Nicolas Pileggi. With Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci, Lorraine Bracco. “Goodfellas is, of course, a movie of great style—the classic tracking shots, the New Wave freeze frames, the jittery editing. And of course, a movie of great performances. But more than any other mob movie this is a movie about lifestyle. And more than any Martin Scorsese film, a film not about sin or redemption, but temptation itself. How could anyone ever aspire to be a gangster? Just watch” (Stephen Whitty, The Star-Ledger/Newhouse). NYFCC Best Picture, 1990. 146 min.
