R | | Crime, Drama
The story of Henry Hill and his life in the mob, covering his relationship with his wife Karen Hill and his mob partners Jimmy Conway and Tommy DeVito in the Italian-American crime syndicate.
Siskel & Ebert named this as their favorite movie of 1990.
The fuck is that?
When Karen visits Henry in prison and she has to sign the register, she scans the entries in the book. With the camera looking at the register from Karen's point of view, Karen spots Henry's name, then her eyes look to the right to see who had visited him. The camera pans to the left, not the right.
A television version of the film was prepared by director Martin Scorsese, which retained a good portion of the film's graphic violence. It also retained much of the profanity, minus the F- and S-words, which were dubbed over. Scorsese did a televised introduction upon the film's network premiere.
