Goodfellas – A classic film based on the book “Wiseguy” by Nicholas Pileggi. The story of a young man that grows up in the mob and works hard to advance himself up the hierarchy. He enjoys his life of luxury, but is oblivious to the horror that he causes. A drug addiction and a few mistakes ultimately unravel his climb to the very top.

James Conway: “Never rat on your friends and always keep your mouth shut.”
Henry Hill: “As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster.”
Tommy DeVito: “What do you mean funny? Like a clown? Do I amuse you? Huh?”
Henry Hill: “Anything I wanted was a phone call away.”
Henry Hill: [narrating] “For as long as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster. To me that was better than being president of the United States. To be a gangster was to own the world.”
Henry Hill: “You know, we always called each other good fellas. Like you said to, uh, somebody, :You’re gonna like this guy. He’s all right. He’s a good fella. He’s one of us.: You understand? We were good fellas. Wiseguys. But Jimmy and I could never be made because we had Irish blood. It didn’t even matter that my mother was Sicilian. To become a member of a crew you’ve got to be one hundred per cent Italian so they can trace all your relatives back to the old country. See, it’s the highest honor they can give you. It means you belong to a family and crew. It means that nobody can fuck around with you. It also means you could fuck around with anybody just as long as they aren’t also a member. It’s like a license to steal. It’s a license to do anything. As far as Jimmy was concerned with Tommy being made, it was like we were all being made. We would now have one of our own as a member.”
