Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Goodfellas (1990)

Directed by Martin Scorsese

Starring Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci, Lorraine Bracco


Great characters, great settings, and really good sound, but not very much of a storyline. I mean, what really happens? It was basically a biography of a gangster, or a documentary of gangster life, with a bit of comedy.

With a little more temporal disjunction, this could have been the work of Tarantino. It already displayed Quentin-esque characteristics in that it ran from middle-beginning-middle-end. And it was certainly bloody enough.
