"As far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster"

The Citizen Kane of the gangster genre, Scorsese transcends the genre he's come to be king of in a way that many would disprove of after the slow and mighty gangster films of the 70's. Best described as the punk rock version of Coppola's The Godfather, Scorsese along with Pesci and De  Niro fire up one hell of a character storm to bring arguably one of the finest films in the genre. Performances are fantastic from all the cast, yet I've always somewhat disproved of Liotta as the main character, something which I feel De Niro would've been better suited. The soundtrack and stroytelling are superb with Scorsese strong use of camera work clear throughout. However, I do hate the scene where Hill in the courtroom breaks the fourth wall, after significant amounts of narration it feels out of place and tedious.
