Subtitles for YIFY movie Casino
The film's nod to how Vegas has been sanitized since those days is also accurate, and reflects sadness at a lost era, where the baby the "old school" types who made Vegas great was thrown out with the bathwater the organized crime influences.
Scorcese seems to have several different directing styles, and Casino follows in the casino 1995 portuguese subtitles of Goodfellas as a pseudo-documentary. And it's fascinating to watch these people run Las Vegas, control the flow of money, and then fall from the heights of power due to lust, hubris, and greed.
Most Martin Scorcese films have an amazing soundtrack that adds to and enhances the scene. A lot of people I talked too: Is it "Goodfellas Part 2", in my opinion, no. His speech in the desert with Ace and the big confrontation.
One of my favorite scenes in film which effectively involves music is actually from Casino - the very intense scene when the relationship between DeNiro, Stone and Pesci come to a head in the climax of the film. Even his lesser-known or critically panned films are above the "great film" line, and Casino is certainly no exception. While this was probably the tenth time I'd seen this film there were more things I noticed, and I'm sure I'll notice more upon my eleventh viewing.
Rothstein is not a mob member, but a "moneymaker" for them because he's the nation's best sports handicapper. The film deals with a particular time period and a particular atmosphere and accomplishes an overwhelming achievement by creating and accurately portraying both.
Scorcese doesn't just utilize the soundtrack, he makes it part of the storytelling - by the music, we chronologically know what time period we are witnessing, since one cannot rely on other factors, such as fashion alone.
You can see why Ace fell so hard for her.
No names, and my old boss who runs our town grocery store actually knew "Ace". The homage paid to the incestuous nature of Nevada politics was an excellent touch.
Being a complete film geek, I generally don't go to films that feature certain stars, I go to films by certain directors and Scorcese is one of them. If you slots for ielts in vijayawada in most of my comments, you can tell I'm a fan.
Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci are both fantastic in their roles, and Sharon Stone actually turned out a non-irritating performance.
The acting is superb. Sharon Stone plays the psychotic Ginger, a once-in-a-lifetime role in that it was the only time in my life I could bear to watch her on film. The man is a complete genius, and a gift to film - my suggestion is to watch some of his films, then check out his unbelievable series, "A Personal Journey with Martin Casino aschaffenburg salon programm Through American Movies" which was done the same year as Casino.
Joe as an actor is very remarkable. I think because I read the book and a lot of what happened in real life happened in my little town in Chicago.
Rothstein is a complicated figure in that he is not a heavy, yet he wields a lot of power due to the respect he has gained from his mob bosses back home. The pounding music cut throughout this scene is a cover of "Satisfaction" by Devo and the result is absolutely brilliant.
Don't compare this to "Goodfellas", let it stand on it's own. But you get past the vulgar language and just enjoy what Joe says and does. In some ways that is very true. Sharon, I apologize, you deserved more praise as well.
Scorsese's direction is flawless. I never thought Pesci would be able to top his dynamic performance in Raging Bull until I saw Casino. But back onto the movie, it does have gangsta's in it, and with that comes some pretty gruesome violence.
The use of music bears mentioning as well: What a terrific performance in the end. If you are a gambler or know the "wiseguy" culture, the movie doesn't have to be explained, while if you aren't, you'll feel like you've stumbled upon the secret meeting place of the mafia and made privy to what is said, without anyone knowing you were there. She was very much robbed of her deserved Oscar.
