US | 1990 | Directed by Martin Scorsese
Logline: The true story of the mob career of Italian gangster, Henry Hill, living in Brooklyn, NYC, during the 50s, 60s, and 70s.
Along with Coppola’s The Godfather (Parts I & II), this is the best movie about the Mafia ever made, which never mentions the word. Featuring career performances from Ray Liotta and Joe Pesci. Scorsese’s control of narrative, sourced music, extreme violence, and the cult of personality have never been better. It does for garlic and meatballs, what Tampopo did for noodles.
