Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
It was never going to be anything thing else. Scorsese’s best film and the best mob film ever made (yes even above The Godfather part 2) is a masterclass in filmmaking. From it’s “As Far Back As I can remember…” opening to it’s drug fuelled Rolling Stone powered finale this is a cast and crew firing on all cylinders. Memorable scene after memorable scene flows so effortless together as Scorsese weaves a thrilling tale with a truly great anti-hero. The fact that it’s based on a real story makes it even more shocking. Truly amazing – one of cinemas most essential films.
Best Bit: Funny guy.
