It’s the 30th Anniversary of the gangster classic, Goodfellas. Martin Scorsese has a long history making gangster movies. We covered his latest one, The Irishman, already but now we’re going back to cover his most famous one. It’s a wild ride, beginning with the Marty insight into the allure of the criminal underworld that you’ve come to expect and culminating in one of the all-time great scenes of chaos and paranoia. Check out the podcast to hear what we thought about it thirty years later.
This Australian crime drama from 2010 really snuck up on us. It’s not what you might think given only that description, but it delivers the goods. We talk about a mother who kisses her children just a little too long, some of the excellent performances, and how it stacks up against other films in the gangster genre.
