Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Martin Scorsese's 1990 masterpiece GoodFellas immortalizes the hilarious, horrifying life of actual gangster Henry Hill (Ray Liotta), from his teen years on the streets of New York to his anonymous exile under the Witness Protection Program. The director's kinetic style is perfect for recounting Hill's ruthless rise to power in the 1950s as well as his drugged-out fall in the late 1970s; in fact, no one has ever rendered the mental dislocation of cocaine better than Scorsese. Scorsese uses period music perfectly, not just to summon a particular time but to set a precise mood. GoodFellas is at least as good as The Godfather without being in the least derivative of it. Joe Pesci's psycho improvisation of Mobster Tommy DeVito ignited Pesci as a star, Lorraine Bracco scores the performance of her life as the love of Hill's life, and every supporting role, from Paul Sorvino to Robert De Niro, is a miracle.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD, BUT MAY BE A LITTLE OUTMODED, OR NOT ? July 10 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bought the DVD to replace a VHS.

A spectacular depiction of the underworld life and mores, with quite many references to real life characters.
Great comedians in action.
For you to appreciate, with the knowledge you may have, or do not have, of this underworld.

Take it half in half and you will be close. Because real life is not so predictable, of course...

Scorsese at his very best. This is the ultimate mob film to watch! Scorsese is one of the best director ever (Casino, Raging Bull, The Departed, etc.) and this movie is one of the proof!

Interesting to see some of the characters from the Sopranos drama series in this movie although the movie lacks depth relacing to OC activities compared to the Sopranos or the Godfather collection.

Great movie, but it didn't have that great 1080p crisp look that some blu-rays give to older movies, but nothing wrong with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars WISEGUYS Oct. 13 2013
By Jet Lagged TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
I read the Nicholas Pileggi ("Henry Hill") book "Wiseguy" when it first came out.

This is the film adaptation. I think Scorsese had to use the title "Goodfellas" instead - since there already was a film out entitled "Wise Guys" (featuring Danny deVito). From what I remember, the movie closely follows the book. Guys, wise or otherwise, were getting "whacked" all over the place...

Brilliant performances from De Niro, Pesci and Ray Liotta (Who plays Hill) et al. Watch out for the little known actor (at the time) who plays the van driver - incidently, one of the first characters to get whacked.
