Starting from birth, most of us are conditioned to live life on the straight and narrow. Show up to work on time, make an honest day’s wage to support your family, and be good to our fellow man. Perhaps that’s why so many of us are captivated by tales of those who chose the other path—the life of crime and violence. Martin Scorsese’s 1990 mafia movie masterpiece Goodfellas illustrates the other side through the eyes of Henry Hill (played by Ray Liotta). “For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a gangster,” he says. And that’s exactly what he becomes. Witness the towering heights and bottomless lows of the criminal life and decide which path is for you with this week's special screening.
