Definitive, sky-high Scorsese, and the one towards which all his subsequent films have been reaching, Goodfellas is, put bluntly, the best movie of the director's career.

It's Joe Pesci who dominates the picture with his fierce performance as Tommy DeVito, an ill-tempered mobster who frequently displays the tendencies of a rabid wolverine.

It's visually exciting, off-handedly funny, and genuinely informative.

Martin Scorsese's intoxicating, sardonic gangster film has, for better and worse, been one of the most influential films of the last three decades. At long last, it receives the home-video treatment it deserves.

Even after 25 years, Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas remains the very apex of mobster cinema.

All of the performances are first-rate; Pesci stands out, though, with his seemingly unscripted manner. GoodFellas is easily one of the year`s best films.

GoodFellas, which somehow mixes its horrors with a deep vein of mordant humor, flows with the exuberance of a filmmaker who has every detail nailed and a few new lovely moves he wants to show us.

Spanning thirty years and running two and a half hours, 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.

Scorsese's best film? Difficult to call, though if it doesn't beat Raging Bull, it runs it a close second.
March 25, 2014
From its opening scene of shocking brutality through its remaining 150 minutes of electrifying, relentless drama, violence, humor and horror, Martin Scorsese`s spellbinding Mafia saga GoodFellas is a film audiences will long remember.

Robert De Niro gives what has come to be a typical Robert De Niro performance -- understated, sly, ingratiating. Joe Pesci, as the hot-tempered Tommy, steals several scenes from his fellow performers.
March 25, 2014
GoodFellas is a movie that savagely and thoroughly obliterates romanticized notions of the Mafia.
March 25, 2014
The most profoundly Catholic of contemporary filmmakers, Scorsese has here imagined a world without the slightest notion of sin-everything is permitted, and he is both fascinated and appalled by the total freedom of his characters.
