DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION
This story about half-Irish, half-Italian criminal Henry Hill (based on a true story), touches on Scorsese's themes of being an outsider, as well as examining how crime thrills, edifies, warps and eventually destroys people. Considered by Roger Ebert to be the greatest film made about organized crime, Scorsese sought to focus on the small details, the quotidian life of a gangster in all its weird and often despairing ways. As usual, Robert De Niro is amazing, but Joe Pesci is at once hilarious and terrifying, a force of nature whose performance earned him an Academy Award.
Presented by The Heights Theater and The Trylon Cinema.
