5 As far back as I can remember I wanted to be a GangsterNameizNaz | 31/03/2008 | See all NameizNaz's reviews (112)Top 100 Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer This is officially (to me, anyway), one of the best Gangster Mafia movies of all time. In a different way to The Godfather or Donnie Brasco, that is. The shocking and comical manner in which life as a Mafioso is told puts the subject across in a way only Scorcese is able to do. Following the life of Henry Hill who lives to be a gangster since childhood, his rise to become a key mafioso is told almost elegantly, with abundant violent input by De Niro and Pesci. A fast moving film that tells a Mafia story like no other, become a wiseguy, become a goodfella and watch this movie.
