Scorsese’s kinetic gangster classic.
Available on BFI Player only
Dir Martin Scorsese
With Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci, Lorraine Bracco
Scorsese’s portrait of the Italian-American underworld as experienced by an awe-struck kid-turned-made-man (Liotta) from the 50s to the late 70s centres on misplaced loyalties, violent crime, vengeance and betrayal. Visceral and visually flamboyant, it is shocking yet sometimes perversely seductive.
Bassam & Riz: The mob. The swagger. The banter. Oh the wonderful banter.
