It's not only the greatest gangster film ever made, but it's also one of the most glaring omissions in the history of the Oscars.

A multi-generational tale of bad money, it is the defining American movie of the 1990s; Scorsese hasn't made a film half as good since its 1990 release.

Long and brutal, but Scorsese was never better at marshalling his cinematic tools to tell a story ... his definitive statement about the New York City mob.

A drama that injects your adrenal glands with the thrill of living from score to score and walking the streets with limitless power.

That Martin Scorsese's brilliant GoodFellas lost the 1990 Best Picture and Best Director Oscars to Dances with Wolves is one of the all-time miscarriages of justice in the history of the Academy Awards.

Scorsese's fast, violent, stylish mobster movie is a return to form.

The iridescence of, and questions asked by Goodfellas place the film among the great American classics.

Goodfellas is the movie that sees most directly into the heart of the mob.

Scorsese's rich tapestry is both broader in scope and more detailed than a mere recounting of the events in the trio's life of crime.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

O filme traz a câmera ágil de Scorsese e a edição eficiente de Thelma Schoonmaker, além de excelentes atuações por parte de todo o elenco - em especial de Joe Pesci, assustador como o cruel Tommy.

| Original Score: 5/5

A highly disturbing but mesmerising look at the joys and dangers of life in the mob. One of Scorsese's best.
