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.


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.

A thug is a thug.

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

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

NewportBarGuy: make me some tea: I love that movie.

I'm pretty sure it's in the Top 5 list of anyone I want to be friends with, or admit that I know.

Same here. I wouldn't even consider liking anyone who didn't like this movie.
