Goodfellas

What a great film. I’m pretty sure I haven’t re-watched this since back in the day, and so I was pretty fresh going in, not really remembering how the story went. I think it’s also interesting to see this after The Irishman, as you can draw some interesting parallels — not just the presence of Pesci and De Niro, but also the fact that Liotta and De Niro can’t be “made” because they’re of Irish descent. All of the performances are of course fantastic, including bright-eyed Liotta. I also really enjoyed some of the amazing long tracking shots that Scorsese executes throughout. Still deservedly one of the best films of 1990.
