The Twin Geekscast 26: Goodfellas (1990)

As far back as we can remember we’ve always wanted to talk about this ultimate gangster flick. Goodfellas is the culmination of all great gangster films in a compelling and captivating biopic that has been a monumental influence for almost 30 years now. It’s the standout film of director Martin Scorsese’s career, and makes for a good argument for being his greatest film. Carefully, Scorsese balances the glamour and awe of the lavish gangster lifestyle with the violence and morbid betrayal that comes with the job, making sure that you only relate enough to the vile protagonists to understand their story and not to sympathize with them. Goodfellas is a lavishing portrayal of mob life through the real life rise and fall story of Henry Hill, and one that manages to go above and beyond standard biopic expectations to tell a grand story of crime and punishment.
