When Martin Scorsese, one of the world`s most skilful and respected directors, reunited with two-time Oscar Winner Robert De Niro in `GoodFellas`, the result was one of the most powerful films of the year.
Based on the true life best seller `Wiseguy` by Nicolas Pileggi and backed by a dynamic pop/rock oldies soundtrack, critics and filmgoers alike declared `GoodFellas` great.
It was named the best film of the `90s by the New York, Los Angeles and National Society of film critics, and it earned 6 Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director.
Robert De Niro received wide recognition for his performance as veteran criminal Jimmy `The Gent` Conway. And as the volatile Tommy DeVito, Joe Pesci walked off with the Best Supporting Actor Oscar.
Academy Award nominee Lorraine Bracco, Ray Liotta and Paul Sorvino also turned in electrifying performances. You have to see it to believe it - then watch again. `GoodFellas` explores the criminal life like no other movie.
