Scorsese gets gratuitous... Martin's portrayal of violence often retain their ability to discomfit because he frames them in a human context, here the stuff feels almost exploitative (yep, if you crush a man's head in a vice, his eye will pop out)... still an interesting movie, kinda, in it's exploration of organized crime (illegal, see J. Edgar to view the pseudo-legal brand)$
On the wake of Trump, who else could we turn to but "Marty", a consistently reactionary filmmaker who recoded all nouvelle vague's tricks into 3-hour long pop/rock montages of grown men having backyard tussles? A bland, corporate Vegas is the legacy of another dynasty of crooks. The party goes elsewhere, a family is uprooted, the well is dry, but we have to choose: are continuities more interesting than ruptures?
A dupla scorsese-de niro é "kick ass". Casino é um filme completo sobre a decadência e a necessidade de controlo e não seria a mesma coisa sem a intervenção de Ginger (Sharon Stone). Até o casamento é um acordo mútuo, um negócio com parâmetros muito específicos. 5 * para o De niro
Is this one of the most directed films ever made? How fitting that Scorsese should pair the dreams sold and debased in Vegas with the experience of being a film-goer. The first half is a masterclass in pushing the form to its artificial limits; people who say it's a caricature miss the point. But dreamers pay the price and the second half is a comedown party of epic proportions. A film to give "movies" a good name.
