Hard to believe we’ve made it this far in the life of our little podcast without getting down with some Martin Scorsese! Have no fear, this episode we take a look at one of his masterworks, Goodfellas! DeNiro, Pesci and Liotta take us through the world of the gangster in a way that is very nearly Shakespearean. Larger than life characters play across the screen until we start to understand that they are are all seduced by their own ideas of their lives. Enjoy our trip through the lives of gangsters, Scorsese style!
Our next episode will be recorded live at the Trylon theater on Sunday the 4th of May! We’ll be watching “Bridge on the River Kwai!” Join us!
