There’s gangster films, and then there’s Goodfellas.
Scorsese’s opus feels more like a hard hitting documentary than a feature film, such is it’s attention to detail and fearlessness. Violence is depicted with visceral fury and murder is portrayed as all part of the job. A walk through the maze of Henry Hill’s life and times is dizzying and breathtaking, especially when guided by the gorgeous soundtrack, sublime acting chops and deft direction, by the time you reach the conclusion of it feels like a life lived in full.
Submitted for your approval, Getting Made: The Making of Goodfellas.
As a special bonus, here’s a special documentary about the Lufthansa Heist featured in the film
