Goodfellas (1990) is the crowning achievement of Italian mob movies. Many believe that would be “The Godfather”, but Goodfellas outpaces it at almost every turn. The storytelling is brilliant and there isn’t a dull character in the entire movie. There isn’t a ton of action, this would be more classified as a drama, but the intriguing dialogue and twists move this lengthy movie along at break-neck speed. Add on a career defining performance by Robert De Niro and your left with a true masterpiece.
