goodfellas

MINI REVIEW: What could be named the first instalment in Martin Scorsese’s Organised Crime Trilogy, Goodfellas is a film with a punch. Let alone it’s 146 minute runtime, the whole affair is deep and engaging, moving to the point where you’re left with a feeling of almost guilt, for having been entertained by the shenanigans of the mafia. Performances worthy of Oscar nominations and wins, there is really not much to fault here, just praise and jaw-dropping directing. There is an elegance to the way this film flows, the way the story is told, bringing us full circle in the life of Henry Hill. Oh, and if you thought this was mostly made up, well, you’re wrong. Goodfellas is a biographical piece, no doubt with artistic flair, but you get the sense that the things we witness here, from the comfort of our lounge, did indeed take place, gruesome isn’t it?

Goodfellas is the The Godfather of the nineties. For any film lover, this is a must see, and perhaps even one of the favourites. We get to see the ripest form of movie making from the legendary Mr Scorsese. To celebrate this film further, we present you with 7 beautifully captured frames from this pillar of a film, enjoy!
