These films have dated badly
The two of them share this snappy, frenetic, very 90s, very American sensibility, imo. Oliver Stone had it when he did Natural Born Killers too.he's a totally different animal than tarrantino. they both do period films, but that's about it. goodfellas is great, fugetaboutit.
Yeah, I hated that one. I still can't believe that was Scorsese. I can't even work out what he was trying to do. It was just stupid. I've never liked DDL either. People rave about him, but I can't think of a performance of his I've enjoyed.Gangs of New York was the worst I've seen by him. Unbelievable dreck.
Goodfellas ends up cold on the mob, I'd say. They all turn on each other like jackals. All dead or in jail. People always remember the more glamorous bits, of course. That's the problem with glamour.Apparently The Irishman casts a colder eye on the mob thing and feels somewhat critical of those earlier films.
