I loved it. Keitel in his pomp was suave as fuck, no doubt. Think i might even go as far as to say that's my favourite De Niro character, as well, even though i know it probably isn't his best performance.
The love interest angle was, erm...different, think it worked. Pretty intense, in an understated way. Didn't seem to be trying too hard like a lot of gangster films.
Scorsese's first great film?
Gonna make a sandwich now.
