Watch: Celebrate 25 Years Of 'Goodfellas' With This Nostalgic Supercut

9 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It strikes me as almost impossible that “Goodfellas” — Martin Scorsese’s mafia masterpiece — opened nearly a quarter century ago, all the way back in September of 1990. I remember watching the instant classic for the first time as if it was yesterday. I can still recall almost every line and shot, every pulse-pounding and heart-stopping moment, every hit and every gun blast. Maybe that’s because I’ve watched it untold times since it was first released. Now, 25 years later, “Goodfellas” has robustly withstood the test of time. It still ranks among the best gangster films of all time with both fans and critics alike. It’s the 3rd best mob movie ever according to an AMC list (behind the first two “Godfather” films). Paste Magazine puts it at 2 (though that list only goes back four decades), right behind “The Godfather.” AFI also listed it second after Coppola’s 1972 hit. Roger Ebert »

Watch: Break The Law With This Gangster Movie Supercut

25 March 2015 2:19 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Who doesn’t love a good gangster movie? They contain some of the most iconic characters (“Scarface”), memorable scenes (“The Godfather”), and best lines (anything from “The Untouchables”) in cinema. There’s a reason producers keep returning to organized crime — when the stars align, mafia films are hard to top, reaping big box office returns and raking in both awards and critical acclaim. Hollywood’s been making gangster flicks for almost as long as there’s been a movie industry, since the time when actual gangsters ran speakeasies and smuggled hooch from state to state. Prolific Vimeo user Jorge Luengo Ruiz has crafted yet another supercut, this time paying tribute to over 80 years of gangsters in movies. The not-quite-three-and-a-half-minute video begins with a defining bit of voice over from Henry Hill (Ray Liotta, “Goodfellas”), which sums up the supercut perfectly. “As far back as I could remember, I always wanted to be a gangster. »

Directors' Trademarks: Paul Thomas Anderson

24 March 2015 5:49 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. This week we’re examining the trademark style and calling signs of Paul Thomas Anderson as director.

Anderson began his career without any related college experience as a production assistant. With some money he scrounged together, he made a short film, which he entered into the 1993 Sundance Film Festival. He decided to turn that short into a feature and was invited to attend the Sundance Feature Film Program, where he was mentored, and his talents were further developed. In 1996 his first feature film was released, Hard Eight, which Anderson had to raise his own money in order to edit it as he wanted, which was different than how the production company wanted to release the film. His version received some critical praise. His next film, Boogie »

There are few movies as universally loved as Goodfellas. Martin Scorsese's crime epic remains regularly at the top of every sort of best of list thanks in part to the stellar cast, screenplay, and direction. Personally, I prefer Casino (check out my UnPopular Opinion), but I respect the love Goodfellas has earned.

Cinema Retro Exclusive! Thelma Schoonmaker, Legendary Film Editor, Discusses The Restoration Of "The Tales Of Hoffmann"

13 March 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Mark Cerulli

The 1951 film The Tales of Hoffmann, the acclaimed British adaptation of the opera by Jaques Offenbach, was an early influence on major directors like Cecil B. DeMille, George Romero (who said it was “the movie that made me want to make movies”) and Martin Scorsese. They were drawn to co-directors, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressberger’s inventive camera work, vibrant color palette (each of the three acts has its own primary color) and smooth blending of film, dance and music. According to an interview found on Powell-Pressburger.org, Powell wanted to do a “composed film” – shot entirely to a pre-recorded music track, in this case, Offenbach’s opera. Not having to worry about sound meant he could remove the cumbersome padding that encased every Technicolor camera and really move it around production designer Hein Heckroth’s soaring sets. (Heckroth’s work on the film earned him two 1952 Oscar nominations. »

Film Review: ‘Straight Outta Tompkins’

9 March 2015 3:56 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The personal doesn’t feel especially persuasive in “Straight Outta Tompkins,” 22-year-old writer-director-star Zephyr Benson’s semi-autobiographical drama about the relentless downward spiral of a teenage junkie/dealer adrift on the Lower East Side. Imagining what might have happened if his own youthful experiences using and selling drugs had taken a much darker, more extreme turn, Benson displays more energy and assurance behind the camera than he does in front of it; even still, his tonal command of his own narrative is wobbly at best, employing cynical humor and climactic eruptions of violence to jazz up what is ultimately an overly earnest and predictable cautionary tale. Although not without promise, the film (which opened March 6 in limited release) likely proved more cathartic for its maker than it will be for those who seek it out.

Boston College Hoops Scandal Subject of New Movie (Exclusive)

4 March 2015 7:13 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mad Hatter Entertainment is developing a movie project about the 1978-79 Boston College point-shaving scandal.

Michael Connolly’s production company has acquired movie rights to David L. Porter’s “Fixed: How Goodfellas Bought Boston College Basketball.”

The point-fixing scheme, which was orchestrated by mobster Henry Hill of the Lucchese crime family, involved several Boston College players attempting to hold down the score so that the team would fall short of the point spread.

The conspiracy was discovered when Hill was arrested on drug trafficking charges and resulted in the conviction of Jimmy “the Gent” Burke, wanted for masterminding the Lufthansa Airlines heist.

The FBI ultimately used this scandal to bring down one of the most powerful crime families in New York, responsible for multiple murders and the largest cash heist in U.S. history. Hill testified against his associates and went into the federal witness protection program.
