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.
At the end of the movie, when Tommy fires a couple of rounds at the camera for no apparent reason, he's duplicating the final scene in The Great Train Robbery (1903).
The fuck is that?
When Maury is whacked in the car, you could see him blink when Frankie Carbone opens the driver side door, even though he is supposed to be dead.
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.
$6,368,901 (USA) (21 September 1990)
