I saw an interview many years ago where Henry said that Goodfellas was around 95% accurate and the shine box scene was a spot on portrayal of actual events.

I'm amazed he lasted this long. After he went into witness protection, he couldn't stay on the straight and narrow and he went back to a life of crime.

Personally, of all the Martin Scorsese mob movies, Goodfellas was the best one. The Departed and Casino were excellent, but I think what put Goodfellas at the top was that there were no sympathetic characters. Departed had Leo as the "good guy", Casino's DeNero was sympathetic because he was a good father and just a gambler.

Goodfellas every single character wanted that life. Every character was out for themselves and every character was ready to betray another. Even Henry Hills wife got moist at the fact that her man was a gangster.

I agree. The main reason I like it is that no one tried to mitigate the characters. They were, without exception, portrayed as what they were. There was no moral, no attempt to "turn" any of them. And it made the movie far more powerful than if the writers had made one of them - even one - a misguided guy with a heart of gold.

I remember the story he told of when he was nominated, he just KNEW they wouldn't give him the Oscar, so he got loaded. Then lo and behold they called his name, and on the way up he was quickly trying to put together a speech, but realized what a mess it'd be, so he went up there, said a few words, and left.

Heh.

His performance as Tommy is one of only a handful that makes me uncomfortable every time I watch it...like Peter Lorre in M, Robert DeNiro in The King of Comedy, or Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight.

Henry forgot the two greatest things in life- never rat on your friends, and always keep your mouth shut.

Kinda surprised he was allowed to live after that.

It is great but I can't watch it very often because I always know what is happening. Every few years at most. I think if you remember it like that, it was a movie on another level.

I think my favorite part of Goodfellas is when the piano chord from "Layla" crashes down and it cuts to the front end of that pink Cadillac. It was a weird marriage of beauty and horror that, like other forms of art, I can't explain but know when it elicits a strong response.

And then there's that litany of boozy rock and roll (Stones' "Memo From Turner," "Monkey Man," "Mannish Boy" by Muddy Waters while inhaling blow) that just perfectly captures the bizarre day Hill was having just before being busted. Scorcese has always had a gift for the music matching the scene.

However..

It's important that we remember not recall Hill for his highly stylized image from the film. The dude was a scumfark. Sometimes white people rant about how young black males idolize dopers and killers, yet they seem to forget how they worship the better-dressed white versions in cinema. I've caught myself doing it.

From what I can gather from my armchair, usually the new Immigrants Organized Crime are the one who are secretive and violent. They usually overthrow the former Immigrants who are now second or third generation. The Italians/Irish displaced the Eastern Europeans. Theygot replaced by the Colombians and Cubans, who in turn are being replaced by Armenian/Russian/Asians.

He was a stone cold greedy psycho that killed dozens of people. Far far worse than he was portrayed in the movie.

"Scumfark" or not, you have to admit that in his later years, he had life figured out pretty well.

As someone watching Goodfellas, I'm getting a kick..Seriously..It just happened to be on!

Actually, I think Karen was sort of a sympathetic character in Goodfellas..Though she is complicit in
the crime, she really did care for Henry.She paid the price while he was in prison and having to
go on the run into the witness protection program, looking over her shoulder, etc...As they showed,once
your in that life, there is no way out except to die.

This.

If Goodfellas was 95%accurate, which I doubt, you can bet that some scenes that were changed were ones where he committed murder. Such as killing 'shine box' guy, and stuff Jimmy asked him to do.

Hill was a mobster.
