GOODFELLAS
1990, Warner Bros., 146 min, USA, Dir: Martin Scorsese

Irwin Winkler produced this quintessential mob epic, directed by Martin Scorsese and based on Nicholas Pileggi’s Wiseguy. Ray Liotta stars as Henry Hill, a real-life mobster, whose captivating narration rivals that of previous Scorsese antihero Travis Bickle. Joe Pesci won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor as charismatic sociopath Tommy DeVito, and Robert De Niro shines as the brutal Jimmy Conway. Filled with memorable characters, a wealth of atmosphere, beautiful tracking shots by cinematographer Michael Ballhaus and, as always in Scorsese films, an amazing soundtrack. The all-star cast also includes Lorraine Bracco, Paul Sorvino, Frank Vincent and even a young Michael Imperioli ("The Sopranos") in the small but memorable role of Spider.

HUSBANDS
1970, Sony Repertory, 131 min, USA, Dir: John Cassavetes

Death, booze and gambling dominate this dour, yet strangely life-affirming dissection of masculinity and the male ego. Cassavetes’ fifth feature, HUSBANDS follow three men, who abandon their wives and adult responsibilities for purely hedonistic exploits after learning of the death of a common friend. Seeing camaraderie as the only antidote for existential dread, the trio makes its way to London, where they forge a stronger bond while becoming further disconnected from reality. Starring Ben Gazzara, Peter Falk and Cassavetes himself, the film is a painful, sublime, and often funny portrait of grief and desperation.
