Scorsese’s dazzling depiction of organised crime from the 50s to late 70s contains some of his most memorably stylish set-pieces.

Gangster 1990 145 mins

Director: Martin Scorsese



Scorsese’s dazzling portrait of the Italian-American underworld as experienced by an awestruck kid-turned-made-man (Liotta) from the 50s to the late 70s offers a litany of misplaced loyalties, violent crime, ready vengeance and deadly betrayal. Visceral, visually flamboyant and edited with a rock ’n’ roller’s sense of rhythm, it contrives to be shocking yet at times perversely seductive.
