all-time classic, no doubt.
i think i prefer it to Goodfellas. it's certainly no cheesier and cliche-ridden.
amazing bar brawl scene with some bikers, and a truly heart-melting love interest angle. plus one of the all-time great Italian-American gangster bosses in Sonny.
pretty racist, though, but i guess it probably had to be.
de Niro's most understated performance.
