Movie Reviews

“In terms of narrative fluidity it may well be the most accomplished thing Scorsese’s ever done (…) Stylistically, it’s a remarkable effort” Jonathan Rosenbaum: Chicago Reader 

“‘Goodfellas’ is both the most politically serious and most evilly entertaining movie yet made about organized crime.” Vincent Canby: The New York Times
