The 5 Best Moments from the 'Goodfellas' Anniversary Reunion Screening

just now | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

One look around New York's Beacon Theatre this past Saturday night told you it wasn't just another night at the Beacon. To close the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, much of the cast and crew of Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas reunited for a remastered screening of the film followed by a Q&A (hosted by The Daily Show's Jon Stewart) featuring Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro, Lorraine Bracco, Paul Sorvino and screenwriter Nick Pileggi.  The Beacon was packed with fictional big-screen wiseguys, many of whom played a role in Goodfellas, as well as The Sopranos and other mob-related movies and TV shows that have filmed in New York over the years. The room was buzzing, and when Robert De Niro (who played wiseguy Jimmy Conway in the Scorsese classic...

Goodfellas cast reunites for 2015 Tribeca Film Festival

10 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Once a gangster, always a gangster – the stars of Martin Scorsese's 1990 masterpiece Goodfellas have reunited for the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.

Paul Sorvino, Ray Liotta, Lorraine Bracco and Tribeca co-founder Robert De Niro spoke to host Jon Stewart at New York's Beacon Theater to close the festival on Sunday (April 27).

The group introduced a screening of the film, which is based on the life of Lucchese crime family member Henry Hill.

Scorsese also appeared via a video at the festival to talk about the film's infamous 'midnight feast' scene, where Liotta, Joe Pesci and De Niro's characters eat a late dinner with the mother of Pesci's character Tommy after burying a body.

He said: "There was only one or two written lines, about showing [her] paintings. The rest was pretty much what it was like to be around my mother, Joe, Bob, Ray…

11 Things We Learned About Goodfellas from Saturday's Tribeca Q&A

26 April 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Last night, the Tribeca Film Festival presented a 25th anniversary screening of Martin Scorsese’s 1990 masterpiece Goodfellas as its closing night event. After the film, actors Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro, Paul Sorvino, Lorraine Bracco, and screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi joined The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart onstage for a Q&A. (Joe Pesci couldn’t make it, De Niro joked, and instead sent a message: “Fuck fuck fuckity fuck fuck fuck. Fuck.”) Scorsese and producer Irvin Winkler, still filming their long-anticipated Silence in Taipei, also couldn’t make it, but sent in video messages introducing the film. Here are some of the things we learned from the discussion.Author and co-screenwriter Pileggi didn't believe it was Scorsese calling him. After Wiseguy, Pileggi’s book about the life of Henry Hill, came out, Martin Scorsese called the writer numerous times to talk about adapting it. Pileggi, a writer for New York (hey! »

Tribeca: 8 Highlights from the 'Goodfellas' 25th Anniversary Reunion

26 April 2015 11:42 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When narrator Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) declared “As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be gangster" at the start of the unveiling of a gorgeous re-mastered 4K print of "Goodfellas," the packed Beacon Theater erupted in enthusiastic applause. Many others followed throughout the screening as the huge crowd nostalgically revisited the film and its most famous moments. Predictably, the “Funny how” scene between Hill and Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci) nabbed the most rapturous laughter and clapping. The screening was also an affirmation of Scorsese’s authentic and energetic depiction of amoral and despicable behavior. The debate that erupted at the opening of Scorsese’s non-didactic yet cautionary and often laugh-out-loud funny take on gangsters was not dissimilar from the reaction to last year’s instantly controversial "Wolf of Wall Street," as naysayers accused the filmmaker of glorifying excessive behavior.

Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta Reunite for ‘Goodfellas’ Anniversary at Tribeca Film Festival Closing

26 April 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival closed Saturday night with a 25th anniversary gala screening of Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas,” held within the gold-spun rococo of the Upper West Side’s Beacon Theater. The screening was followed by a panel with stars Paul Sorvino, Ray Liotta, Lorraine Bracco, “Wiseguy” journalist and writer Nicholas Pileggi, and (inevitably) Tribeca co-founder Robert De Niro, moderated by “The Daily Show’s” Jon Stewart. (The comedian sometimes slipped into a slightly Pesci-esque accent, conceding that if anybody from the production met him right around the time “Goodfellas” came out, he would have been annoying as hell.)

De Niro and Tribeca’s other co-founder Jane Rosenthal introduced the film, with the movie icon offering that this year’s 14th iteration of the festival marked “13 more than we intended, and tomorrow we start work on the 15th.” He then went on to read a email from Joe Pesci (the »

Tribeca: Martin Scorsese Said He "Denigrated a Certain Ethnic Group" at 'Goodfellas' Reunion

26 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Of the many delicious scenes in Goodfellas, the one that lingers longest is that of Paulie Cicero slicing garlic with a razor blade. "The character in real life actually did that! And people have asked me if those were stunt hands — no, they're mine," Paul Sorvino recalled to The Hollywood Reporter of the move, which he recently re-created on Rachael Ray. "But do not mix garlic and onions together — if I hear you did, I'm going to hunt you down."       Ray Liotta also joked of the scene, "I like it a little

Watch: 17-Minute Video Essay Goes Behind The Lace Of Martin Scorsese's 'The Age Of Innocence'

24 April 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Martin Scorsese’s transcendent gangster classic “Goodfellas,” and while the director’s grand stature in cinematic history is in no doubt, that doesn’t mean there are no under-appreciated gems hiding in his filmography. Point of fact, this year also marks the 22nd anniversary of the little discussed adaptation of Edith Wharton’s novel, “The Age of Innocence.” To convince you of the sensual beauty and magnificence of the period piece, Milad Tangshir has crafted a nearly 20-minute-long video essay on the virtues of the 1993 film. Titled “Hidden Behind Lace,” Tangshir’s video essay not only breaks down Scorsese’s visual style and offers analysis, but also includes clips from interviews given by editor Thelma Schoonmaker, cinematographer Michael Ballhaus, co-screenwriter Jay Cocks, production designer Dante Ferretti, and Scorsese himself. It’s a loving tribute to a film that’s been unfairly overlooked »

Black Mass Trailer: Johnny Depp’s Bold, Bald Portrayal of Whitey Bulger

23 April 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Just when we thought we didn’t like Johnny Depp anymore, here he is doing what appears to be quality work again portraying notorious gangster James “Whitey” Bulger in Black Mass. If he looks and sounds like Jack Nicholson, particularly in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed, that’s partly because that character was partly based on Bulger. He actually sounds more like Nicholson as Frank Costello and Ray Liotta’s aged Henry Hill in Goodfellas than the real Bulger. Unlike Depp’s other portrayal of a balding icon in the Hunter S. Thompson adaptation Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, here he may not be attempting full authenticity but rather one of his hodgepodge characterizations. Either way, that main steak dinner scene at the center of this first trailer is intense, and the extended showcase of Depp’s creepy-eyed performance piques our interest. As does the whole ensemble, which we barely get a look at here. Black Mass »

Steadicam Operator Larry McConkey on Filming the Goodfellas Copacabana Tracking Shot and The Early Days of Steadicam

23 April 2015 8:56 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

The Copa Shot: It’s one of the few shots in the history of cinema readily identifiable by name, instantly conjuring the image of Goodfellas gangster Ray Liotta leading Lorraine Bracco – and by extension the audience – through the back entrance of New York’s legendary Copacabana nightclub, as Steadicam operator Larry McConkey glides along behind them. How long did one of film’s most famed tracking shots take to pull off? It was in the can before lunch — which isn’t to say it was easy.

Tribeca Film Festival Mirrors Changing Faces of New York, Movie Business

15 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Live from New York!,” the opening night feature at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, offers a reminder of the fest’s tumultuous origins, as well as an illustration of how it and New York City have changed in the 13 years since it was conceived.

The behind-the-scenes look at “Saturday Night Live” brings to vivid life the days after 9/11, when parts of lower Manhattan were left a smoldering ruin. On the first show back, “SNL” producer Lorne Michaels asked Mayor Rudy Giuliani, “Can we be funny?” To which the mayor replied, “Why start now?”

“It broke the ice and it started the healing process,” remembers Tom Broecker, a producer on the film and the costume designer on “SNL.”

The Tribeca Film Festival emerged from a similar impulse. The brainchild of Robert De Niro and producer Jane Rosenthal, it aimed to encourage New Yorkers to venture south of Canal Street to »

Live Performances Heat Up Tribeca Film Festival Screenings

15 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Generally, a film festival is a place to watch, well, films. But some of the hottest tickets at the 2015 Tribeca Fest are likely to be for events that feature a live performance as well as a screening.

“We’re New York,” says Tribeca Film Festival programming director Genna Terranova. “We have theater, we have comedy, we have music, we have everything. The idea of combining all these wonderful arts that New York celebrates throughout the year into events with cinema only felt natural.”

An April 22 screening will remind viewers that in the silent film era, live music was a big part of the attraction for audiences. Harold Lloyd’s 1928 silent comedy “Speedy,” about a dedicated Yankees fan, will get a new score by DJ Z-Trip, who will perform it live.

A Brief (Pun Intended) History of Lawyers in the Movies

13 April 2015 2:25 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Alex Simon

Lawyers in motion pictures have been portrayed as one of two extremes, devils or angels, almost since celluloid was invented. The first film dealing specifically with a law firm and attorneys, 1933’s Counsellor at Law, starring John Barrymore, portrayed its J.D.s as upstanding citizens, as did the early Perry Mason films of the same period. This quickly changed, however, with many attorneys portrayed as being capable of the same brand of skullduggery as their shifty clients. With that in mind, we bring you a list of the good, the bad and the ugly of lawyers in movies.

1. To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)

Gregory Peck’s Atticus Finch became the boilerplate for the Noble Movie Lawyer in this iconic, 1962 adaptation of Harper Lee’s award-winning novel. Atticus Finch, a small town attorney in the Depression-era South, must defend a black man (Brock Peters) falsely accused of raping a white woman, »

AMC’s 8-Part Event ‘Making Of The Mob: New York’ With Ray Liotta Kicks Off “Mob Mondays”

10 April 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Martin Scorsese’s 1990 masterpiece “Goodfellas” immortalized the hilarious, horrifying life of actual gangster Henry Hill (Ray Liotta), from his teen years on the streets of New York to his banal exile under the Witness Protection Program. The director’s kinetic style was the perfect way to tell Hill’s ruthless rise to power in the 1950s as well as his drugged-out fall in the late 1970s; where the results of cocaine use was perfectly detailed in manic camera work and staccato dialogue.This film also boasts pitch perfect period music to create a precise mood.

Black Souls – The Review

9 April 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Like many genre films, the category of mafia films is often branded with certain expectations. Granted, not all of these films are created equal, but we generally expect to see lots of violence and/or lots of foul language and Hollywood stereotypes. Where Black Souls succeeds is in refusing such stereotypes and telling a richly deep story about an unconventional “family business” that conjures up the essence of The Godfather but distances itself even further from the genre stereotypes than just about any film we’ve seen in recent years.

Director Francesco Munzi’s Black Souls (“Anime nere” in Italian) maintains a nearly unprecedented level of dignity for its type. The film tells the story of three brothers closely connected to N’drangheta, a mafia-like criminal organization based out of Calabria. These three brothers, sons of a shepherd, have differing views on their relationships with N’drangheta, which plays a »
