26 years later and it’s still the best Disney movie.
This is Scorsese at his best. The best gangster movie ever made and one the best well crafted movies I’ve ever seen. Everything that you need to know about life is basically covered in this movie. It’s a great glimpse in the life of an otherwise secluded society. The constant feeling that all this could be real, that's what makes it so great and horrifying. The actors fit perfectly for their roles and the scenes are so natural. This is Joe Pesci at his best. Henry was defeated in the end because he became the average person that he never wanted to be.
The Safdie brothers have nailed it once again. They made an intense drama with great direction, pacing, and editing. This film is filled with high intensity and it will stress you out. I’m hoping Adam Sandler gets an Oscar nom for this because this is by far his best performance to date and a good one it was.
