BTW, I hope y'all caught the Taxi Driver reference, with the guns being laid out on the sheet  :)

And in that brief prison scene, when his teeth are gone, they're having the wine and bread, he is absolutely sublime.

"Mangia che cresci".

Quote
I wouldn't mention Goodfellas here; it's a completely different character. There he as unhinged. Here he is more of a classic mafia head. But I think he is great here, too.

Not as great as there, though.

A good synthesis of parts of the flick, which also might explain how, actually, De Niro is shown giving the interview to Charles Brandt who wrote the book. I should rewatch the movie, though, as I'm not sure that the fact that De Niro is shown dictating his recollections to a writer is made clear.

So I rewatched the opening 15min and I totally changed my mind. Once you know where it is going, everything makes sense. And rocks.

I could wath the whole thing all over tonight. I'm actually sad I cannot.

Pretty sure I'm gonna change my rating to a 10 when I see it again.

This has to be one of the most pathetic videos on YouTube though. And I’ve seen my fair share of pathectic videos on YouTube.

If you have to cut it in parts it's the way to do it, but please watch it all at once or you won't experience the whole power of the thing.

I watched it straight in theater, but did have to run out in middle for a minute to take a piss. They should have had an intermission.

Only once? What about a popcorn run?
