With DeNiro, Liotta and Pesci in great pivotal roles, Goodfellas is one of the films that really stands out to me in terms of both a “mafioso” film as well as a film in general. Pesci is pretty much the stand-out with his losing-temper control character while the rest of the film examines the life of crime behind some of the most dangerous criminals at the time. The film is also enjoyable in terms of some of its themes and dialogue where the characters give their views of loyalty, family, and honesty. Even then, those topics eventually come into play throughout the film. One word: Magnificent.
