Goodfellas (1990) directed by Martin Scorsese
Ray Liotta as Henry Hill

Henry (in voiceover): It was easy for all of us to disappear. My house was in my mother-in-law’s name. My cars were registered to my wife. My social security cards and drivers licenses were phonies. I never voted. I never paid taxes. My birth certificate and my arrest sheet, that’s all you’d ever have to know I was alive.

  1. Classic voiceover segment there! Ha!

    Scorsese’s three greatest masterpieces are RAGING BULL, TAXI DRIVER and this great mobster film, in no particular order. But I know I am stating the obvious.

    That is NOT to say that a few others don’t qualify for the masterpiece label, it’s just to frame his three greatest.

  2. Saving the best for last!

  3. I remember boring my friends at the time with my repeated ranting and raving about the injustice of Dances With Wolves winning BP over Goodfellas.

  4. An injustice which as only gotten more clear over time.
