1: Goodfellas (1990) – Phil’s Top 10 Films

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.

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Buy
