This is the movie that proved without a shadow of a doubt that Martin Scorsese was going to be something amazing. This shows such a great sense of humanity and life, few movies have so many realistic scenarios, characters and outlook. There are some truly original shots and New York is always a great place to make a movie. I think that even back then, Scorsese knew exactly what he wanted and the style he wanted to achieve. On top of this great bit of film making there are a lot of performances that are unforgettable. Both Harvey Keitel and Robert De Niro are so much fun to watch and these are two of their most rich characters. This is a truly unforgettable movie and one that signified the careers of so many.
