Martin Scorsese's classic portrait of life in the mob, GOODFELLAS, is a wry, violent, and exhilarating film about an aspiring criminal who rises through the ranks of his Brooklyn neighbourhood's organised crime ring to a life of luxury, only to throw it all away with his reckless behaviour. Passions run high in Tony Scott's bloody thriller TRUE ROMANCE, when an inexperienced call girl paid to seduce a client ends up falling for him. Complications arise when they try to extricate themselves from her pimp and somehow get tangled up with the mob. Violent and quirky in equal measure, the film bears all the usual hallmarks of director Quentin Tarantino, who penned the script. Michael Mann's thrilling crime drama HEAT pits Al Pacino's world-weary cop against Robert De Niro's expert thief in a dangerous game of cat and mouse. Arch rivals, the two men are connected only by their determination to succeed in outsmarting one another, even if it means destroying everything around them, including the people they love.
