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.

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.

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.

go on the run into the witness protection program, looking over her shoulder, etc...As they showed,once

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.

I think goodfellas could have improved if it were used in place of all the songs in the soundtrack. Think about it - speed up all the crap Henry has to do the day he was busted- cutting the coke with quinine, driving Lois bird to get her lucky hat, taking his brother to the doctor, keeping the sauce from getting too think, and play yakity-sax over it. It's perfect. Don't know why Scorsese didnt do that. The rights to yakity-sax must have been too high so he went with plan B.

He never went on the straight and narrow.

I have a buddy who helped him out with some business concerns and the stories I would here.

He would book Henry to give dinners for people, Henry would cook and tell stories about his life, at around 200 dollar a person. A pretty good idea. However, Henry would arrive tanked and coked up, burn the food, start fights, and insult everyone.

The last dinner my buddy did with him, Henry showed up with a methed up hooker who pulled a straight razor on my buddy for telling her to shut up, and his words were"and the next thing I knew I was hanging a hooker from a third story balcony by her ankles until she dropped the blade".

The last few years he had taken to buying old crap at garage sales, autographing it, saying it was his and selling it on Ebay.

i had the pleasure of talking to him on the phone once, funny guy, but he was a douche and a thief until the bitter end.

Some of the real life stories are amazing. My favorite is the bit where he was being interogated after finally getting busted and told that if he didn't tell everything, he would never get to witness protection. He tells the police about the college basketball shaving and completely surprised the police. Never made the movie.

I introduced my 12-year-old son to Goodfellas a few months ago...when that part of the movie started, he heard "What Is Life" and asked if it was "My Sweet Lord" - he actually got that it was a George Harrison song before the lyrics even started...which kinda freaked me out.

Not relevant - just proud.

Not only do I love this movie, I love the book it's based on. I highly recommend Wiseguy, which was just released in a new edition. Not only does the movie follow the actual events pretty well, but there's a lot more things that were going on than we saw in the movie. The best part is how Henry Hill spent those years in prison, and he manipulated the system so much that he was essentially out a year before he was scheduled to be released. The movie made a few changes, obviously, but you'll be shocked by what was 100% accurate. (Like the guy needing two days to thaw out before the autopsy.)

Great book, even better movie.

Of course the first rule of Goodfellas Club is only stupid people get caught, 'cause they're disorganized. Henry was organized.

You know who gets caught Karen? Attractive and successful African-American stick-up men, that's who.

McGrits: Some of the real life stories are amazing. My favorite is the bit where he was being interogated after finally getting busted and told that if he didn't tell everything, he would never get to witness protection. He tells the police about the college basketball shaving and completely surprised the police. Never made the movie.


Not only was he shaving points the FBI Agent he was talking to went to BC and took great joy in prosecuting the kids who took the money.

go on the run into the witness protection program, looking over her shoulder, etc...As they showed,once

Meh. She liked the life as much as anyone. But it is still one of the few gangster films where the women are more than wallpaper. Pesci's ma (grandma?) wishing him well when he went off to get "made" FTW


IIRC, she was Jack Dragna's sister.

robmilmel: 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.


Organized crime isn't that organized, especially when it comes to wise guys like Henry Hill. He wasn't a made guy, and the fairly small number of people who would have really resented his betrayal died in jail or by violence. EVERYBODY sells out to get a lesser sentence these days, and half the mob are FBI informants. Henry Hill stayed hidden long enough for bygones to be bygones.

FishyFred: 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.


I've heard stories that happens a lot - you can take criminals out of the environment, but they are still criminals (see Sammy The Bull).

Hill did make some legit money from book sales and (probably) appearances/interviews. Not sure if that would have been enough to live on and support his on-off drug usage.

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.

This; I seem to recall some friend of mine biatching about a movie named "Belly" that was all about "the life" in black neighborhoods and how it glorified that lifestyle.

And I responded: "Goodfellas" was about the same thing and you weren't biatching about it.

And he stayed silent after that.

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..

In a way, that's why he's celebrated more than Benny Hinn.

It's the Carlin corollary: "He's full of shiat, but at least he lets you know it."

See also: "The People v. Larry Flynt." Larry published Hustler and got demonized for it; Charles Keating was a "moral crusader" all while being neck-deep in the Savings and Loan scandal.

Yet, in the end, it's Larry that's been celebrated, thankfully.

"Goodfellas" doesn't glorify that lifestyle. It ends horribly for everyone even Hill.Hill doesn't get wacked at the end or go to prison until he dies of pneumonia but he ends up living like one of those poor, dead already, working slobs. "Belly" is even worse IIRC because everyone dies. "The Godfather" glorifies the mafia by portraying an era that never really was and Mike Corleone never really pays for living the life until the 3rd sequel.


Scorsese talks about it in one of the dvd extras on "The Departed". That life only leads to 2 endings. Be murdered by your "friends" at a young age or die old in prison.

You know..I think that's sorta true..He really just wanted to run his racket. He didn't want trouble,
because trouble could not only come back on him (Like his speech to Henry about how other guys
got in trouble over drugs). Unlike a lot of the other guys, I don't think he viewed going to jail
as just being "part of his job" (Like you hear Joe Pesci's character say in Casino). I view a lot of

I'm curious. What is your opinion of Bernie Madoff? Is this someone who fascinates you? He was taking without remorse. Should there be a movie where he is made bigger than life on screen? Turned into something of a folk hero? (And don't kid yourself, a lot of people see Henry Hill as a folk hero.)

Or, let's look at someone who has been made bigger than life onscreen. Mark Zuckerberg. What about him? Does he fall into that area of fascination? He has certainly taken from people and done things that are, at the very least, questionable.

The mob is different. They create their own dynamic in this country. I have a friend who works in Hollywood, and he has told me about a show he worked on that was made by the mob, for the mob. It wasn't broadcast anywhere. It was just a show about Mob guys controlling the country that was sent out on dvd to people. The mob isn't about a bunch of conquering warriors. They are thugs and criminals. Vikings and Monguls were a people surviving in harsh conditions; yes, they were violent, but not in the same way. That is an...we'll call it "odd"...argument. That isn't the case with the mob. They could easily integrate into society, but they choose to live above it. And for some damn reason a ton of idiots in this country think that is "cool."

I have to comment on this one.
Goodfellas is one of the best, if not the best mob movie of all time.
Godfather doesnt even touch it.

The next best would be Casino, and the list goes on.

Deniro, Pesci, and Liota are the all time greats. That can not be duplicated but some of todays hacks.

Sad to see henry hill die, but it was immortalized by that movie. his legacy lives on by the greatest actors of our generation.

Running numbers, being intimidating etc.. Like Paul Sorvino, he was a hulking huge guy. 6'4 250+ and
he used that size to his advantage. He didn't get nabbed for much, a few assaults, gambling,robbery,
but nothing like murder or anything. That doesn't, of course, mean he didn't get his hands dirty. He
just didn't get caught..I guess that is how he rose to power, he didn't use a phone, he didn't get directly
involved in the dirt work, and kept a lower profile..The Machiavelli method.. :P

I liked Jimmy. He was the the kind of guy that rooted for bad guys in the movies.

What are you farking stupid or what?

robmilmel: 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.


As he and Sammy the Bull Proved beyond a reasonable doubt, that whole "the mob will whack you if you talk" thing was more myth than reality. Sammy had 50+ mob kills under his belt, and so the mob could never find anyone willing to go after him because they were all too scared of him. Hill, well he just seemed untouchable even after he re-surfaced, partially because (thanks largely to him and Sammy) the mob has become a hollow shell of its former self.

briand354: I have to comment on this one.
Goodfellas is one of the best, if not the best mob movie of all time.
Godfather doesnt even touch it.

The next best would be Casino, and the list goes on.

Deniro, Pesci, and Liota are the all time greats. That can not be duplicated but some of todays hacks.

Sad to see henry hill die, but it was immortalized by that movie. his legacy lives on by the greatest actors of our generation.
-out-


If either Casino or Goodfellas is on TV I will stop and watch it. The problem is that sometimes both are on at the same time. Then my head simply explodes

make me some tea: At least they whacked Joe Pesci. What an asshole.

His character in Casino (Nicky) made that character look like a boy scout.

Casino is still my all-time favorite movie, and I'm just glad I had the chance to see it in a theater during Thanksgiving weekend 1995.

IIRC, and speaking of Goodfellas.......Tom Cruise was originally considered to play Henry. HOLY shiat that would have sucked.

CSB:

Henry Hill made the local papers back in 2003....because he had recently been pulled over for a DUI over by Lake Wenatachee. Not really a cool story, but I got a kick out of it because I drive by the exit for that lake every time I visit my parents.

Mr. Shabooboo: 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.

I think Pauly was also something of a sympathetic character.


He was. In some scenes even he seemed fatherly, but I wonder how much of that was Pauly Cicero/Vario and how much was Pauly Sorvino.

Not a complaint, you understand, but an observation.

McGrits: Some of the real life stories are amazing. My favorite is the bit where he was being interogated after finally getting busted and told that if he didn't tell everything, he would never get to witness protection. He tells the police about the college basketball shaving and completely surprised the police. Never made the movie.


Maury references the point-shaving scandal at the moment he takes an icepick to the back of the neck.

Yeah, man, I remember when those uneducated sociopathic overwrought greaseballs were all about HONOR, man! And then Henry Hill had to go piss all over a gleaming cornerstone of our American Century.

Probably more Paul Sorvino than the character or the guy the character was based on, but getting Pauly'ed is pretty much the main reason I'd never really want to get into crime. I mean going down for something you did is one thing, Its part of the game, but going down for something some underling did behind your back.... I just don't want to play if thats part of the game.

Yotally, right?

*wakka wakka wakka*

P.S. I meant "Yotally." It's my new thang I just spewed right the frick now. Apologies.

P.P.S. Interestingly enough, I am capable of actively listening to everything she says while transfixed on her cleavage...Huzzah for one way communication absent body language!
