"It would be 'The American Nightmare'."
18 June 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is one of the four documentaries found on the second DVD of the 2-Disc release of Goodfellas. It consists of interviews with actors, Scorsese, Pileggi, Hill and the executive producer, well-selected and nicely used film clips, and a couple of still photographs, with all faces not belonging to Henry being blurred out, not dissimilar to the removing of certain names in the commentary track he is one half of(the other person being one of the feds, the one who also appears in the movie). The people talk about what it's like to be a gangster, their life-style, their way of thinking and their "workday", much of it relating to how it's put up on the screen in the title. There are certainly interesting things said, and the eight minutes pass about as fast as they can without the viewer feeling cheated. This is well-paced and the editing is good. It comes with subtitles. There is some use of strong language, but considering the subject, it could have been considerably worse. This holds bloody and brutal violence, and disturbing content. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about organized crime. 6/10
