Definitive Scorsese at his peak, and the film towards which all his subsequent films have been reaching, many critics choice as the best movie of the director’s career.
From the opening credits to Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Ray Liotta in a hard-hitting intro, hard-cutting to red-lit freeze frame, to the sound-bite (“As far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster”), followed by Tony Bennett’s ‘Rags to Riches’, this movie announces its bold, swaggering intent from the start and never relents. Spanning thirty years, the film bristles with the violent passion, howitzer wit and virtuoso style that made Scorsese's reputation with the gangster drama ‘Mean Streets’ in 1973. Joe Pesci dominates the film with a fierce, unforgettable performance.
