Goodfellas

(1990)

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.... More

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.Hide

Martin Scorsese's sprawling gangster tale, GoodFellas is the greatest film about organized crime ever made. A fascinating story that moves at a cracking pace. Fantastic cinematography, editing and soundtrack. Terrific performances from Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci. It's a masterpiece. Grade: A+

  • 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. Full Review

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