Reviews:
“Brash and brilliant”
– PETER BRADSHAW, GUARDIAN

“The performances by everyone are stunning, standout.”
– DESSON THOMSON, WASHINGTON POST

“No finer film has ever been made about organized crime.”
– ROGER EBERT, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

“Scorsese’s fast, violent, stylish mobster movie is a return to form.”
– GEOFF ANDREW, TIME OUT

“Complex, volatile, ironic and disquieting, Scorsese’s Goodfellas is a masterly achievement in intense observation.”
– KIRK HONEYCUTT, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“Goodfellas is a tour de force that brilliantly evokes both the seductive glamour and moral degradation of organised crime.”
– NEIL SMITH, BBC.COM

“All of the performances are first-rate; Pesci stands out, though, with his seemingly unscripted manner. GoodFellas is easily one of the year`s best films. [1990]”
– GENE SISKEL, CHICAGO TRIBUNE

“Definitive, sky-high Scorsese, and the one towards which all his subsequent films have been reaching, Goodfellas is, put bluntly, the best movie of the director’s career.”
– KEVIN MAHER, TIMES (UK)

“One remains detached from the characters, but Scorsese succeeds in smashing all the foolishly romantic myths about the mob with this shocking, vigorously honest portrait of a slick yuppie gangster who couldn’t stand being ‘an average nobody.'”
– KATHLEEN CARROLL, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
