GoodFellas is a great film about three young men, who want to move up in life. The movie tells the story of one night in the life of each of them, and the roles they play in the bigger story. If you are a fan of The Sopranos, you will not be disappointed with this movie.
The story begins in '77, when Vincent "The Glasses" Liberta (Paul Sorvino) is one of the most wanted men in New York City. This is the year of '78, when Larry "Two-Tone" Luciano (Tony Sirico) is trying to win the lottery. Joining him in their mission is "GoodFellas" Charles "Chin" Gigliotti (Al Pacino). They get into a fight with mafia members who recognize them as trouble and chase them down into the depths of Hell.
Along the way, we see that the mafia knows about all of their activities, and they do everything they can to catch them. In order to keep up their cover, they try to use them as pawns. One such scenario takes place after they are caught in a swampy area of Florida.
Luciano puts a machine gun to his head and says that Chin is actually the same sort of similar mafia leader as everyone believes, and that he wants to be with him. After that he takes his son Antonio to live with him, and Chin goes to court for child support.
Season 2 of The Sopranos takes place between seasons, but this movie goes right after the finale. Season 4 of The Sopranos ends with a murder, which is what's going on in GoodFellas.
The movie is about a variety of things. It tells the story of the characters as they chase after each other, and the effects they have on the rest of the mafia, as well as the consequences of their actions. The movie also deals with issues such as family and relationships, and the problems of those who have lost family members. It touches on problems like alcoholism, with great artistic expressions of both emotions and some great acting.
My Two-Tones is an important show and is similar to the series in some ways. The Sopranos was a great show, but it does not measure up to GoodFellas, at least not in my book. I think this movie is a great piece of cinema, and I recommend watching it, along with Serie A.
