Depicting three decades in the life of an American gangster, Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas” reinvented style and substance to massively influential effect. It’s based on the book “Wiseguy” by Nicholas Pileggi, who thought it was a prank when Scorsese first expressed interest. The two eventually connected and even worked together again on 1995’s “Casino.”
