An elite cop squad comes up against a kidnapping crew targeting underworld figures. Effective thriller drawing on some of the same material as The French Connection; great wintry New York location work and a fine car chase too.
The rise and fall of mob informant Henry Hill. Peerless, confident, cine-literate story of a generation of Mafia-related life, which stands also as a lesson in popular music, Italian cookery, and the storytelling possibilities of cinema. Magical from first frame to last.
