LONDON – Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas hit cinemas thirty years ago like a shot to the back of the head. Starring Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and an amazing Ray Liotta, the film climbed the crime ladder of hits wrong by wrong, now standing toe to toe with The Godfather and The Sopranos. New York journalist and film critic Glenn Kenny has written the definitive book on the film – Made Men: The Story of Goodfellas – an essential read for all you mooks out there. John Bleasdale talked to him about the film, his book and its impact and we got on like The Bamboo Lounge on fire.
