You'll find out how he could breathe in the trunk
18 June 2009 | by TBJCSKCNRRQTreviewsSee all my reviews

This is the longest of the four documentaries found on the second DVD of the 2-Disc Special Edition release of Goodfellas. It's a straight behind-the-scenes production. In addition to BTS footage, this has several interviews with cast and crew, excerpts of the script and the director's notes, as well as select clips of the movie, that tend to be used pretty well. A lot of the things said are interesting, and you get insight into how they put it together, Scorsese's process, attention to detail and opinion of his own work and more. The actors go over how it affected them, their careers and the like. This is rather well-edited and paced quite well. With a running time of about half an hour, it's never boring and it doesn't overstay its welcome, either. It's relatively informative, though it doesn't show all that much of the writing, shooting or editing, and they are talked about to some extent. This is subtitled. The language is strong, if not all that frequent. There is a good deal of violence and disturbing content shown from the film. I recommend this to anyone who wants to know how they made the feature. 7/10
