Directed by Martin Scorsese
What another "Great Scenes" post? Well, the lead character of this film, Henry Hill, passed away this week at 69 years of age. I feel that it's appropriate to commemorate that by presenting one of the highlights of Martin Scorsese's great film about the mob, Goodfellas. In this scene, Henry takes his girlfriend into the Copacabana club through a secret entrance. This is done by one single tracking shot. More than just a gimmick, the tracking shot is also symbolical of just how fast this type of life seduces you.
