Based on Nicholas Pileggi's book 'Wiseguy', Martin Scorsese's GOODFELLAS is a wry, violent, and exhilarating film about the life of Henry Hill, an aspiring criminal who ends up in the FBI's witness protection program after testifying against his former partners.
As a poor Irish-Italian growing up in 1950s New York City, Hill (Ray Liotta - SOMETHING WILD, UNLAWFUL ENTRY) rises through the ranks of his Brooklyn neighbourhood's organized crime branch, and with money from the mob he begins living the good life, complete with a beautiful bride, Karen (Lorraine Brocco - THE SOPRANOS), a fancy home, and the best seats at the most exclusive restaurants. A botched robbery lands Henry in prison for a brief period of time, and when he gets released, his reckless infidelities and drug abuse damage his associations with his adopted family.
Scorsese's film is a visual and sonic onslaught, featuring a brilliant pop-music soundtrack and stunning camera work--including the infamous Steadicam one-take that introduces the audience to the Copacabana's patrons. He uses the songs to infuse a rhythm into every scene that is at once breathtaking and invigorating. As the psychopathic Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci - RAGING BULL, MY COUSIN VINNY) delivers an unforgettable, Oscar-winning performance that is alarming in its cold-blooded callousness and Robert De Niro adds to the prestige with his quietly calculating turn as Irish hoodlum Jimmy Conway, helping to cement GOODFELLAS' place as a classic portrait of life in the mob.

I'd go one step further and say greatest movie ever made.

It will never be topped.

This may have more topping but the base is more cake like than the others ... only £1 at Asda! :-)

As for the film... easily worth £8 plus to keep and watch again and again!

In the top 3 films ever made. In my collection already and should be in everybody elses. Hot!

Shame its never had a decent DVD release - they all seem to be flippers

It has - it's the Two-Disc Special Edition, which isn't a flipper and has loads of insightful extras. Go get that.

And be warned, this is a flipper that forces you to swap DVD sides over half-way through the film.

Great Film! I'd go for the 2 disc versions myself but still a good price. No flipping of the disc half way through and quite a few extras!

a legendary film - A lot of gore.

Def in my top five.

Superb. Heat

I'd say in the top two mob movies ever, along with Godfather PtII. Memorable for the scene near the end when Lorraine Bracco (of The Sopranos fame) hides the gun in her knickers. :thumbsup:

Voted tripple hot !(see above..particularly hotness ratings and associated kickback schemes)
