Happy Birthday Goodfellas !

The righteous air to the crown of the modern mafia film after ‘The Godfather’ is being celebrated for his 25th anniversary. The instant classic from grandmaster Martin Scorsese with Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro is still revered as a beautiful homage to the gangster genre.

Goodfellas’ is based on New York crime reporter Nicholas Pileggi’s book Wiseguy,  the true story of Mafia mobster-turned-informant Henry Hill. Martin Scorsese was so impressed with the book he wanted to make it immediately.  Once Robert De Niro accepted to star in the film, Scorsese was able to secure the money needed to make the film. And it went on to be nominated for 6 Academy Award, winning the Best Supporting Actor category with Joe Pesci.  In Europe the film received global praise after the screening at the Venice Film Festival. The film earned 3 Awards, the Silver Lion, the Audience Award and the Film critic Award.

To show the importance of the film, the Tribeca Film Festival organized a screening for the film this year and in the 3,000-seat Beacon Theater, even the young people in audience were applauding the key lines and each character when they appeared on screen. The creator of the famous TV show ‘The Sopranos’ declared that ‘Goodfellas’ inspired him to make the HBO television series. The greatest honor and proof of the movies importance was that the United States Library of Congress deemed the film “culturally significant” and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry in 2000.
