Goodfellas: another classic film you must watch:

What I loved about the film:

  1. Close-up macro shots on the eyes are super intense and beautiful. As well as up-close photos of the gun details are interesting. Takeaway: Do more up-close macro photos, and focus on the details.
  2. Storytelling is what makes the film great: You see the evolution of the main character from a child to a grown man, see him through marriage, and through his breakdown. Lesson: Everyone wants to feel part of a community, a family, or perhaps something bigger than themselves.
  3. Lots of great pop cultural references: Like the pink Cadillac (I always wondered why Nassim Taleb refers to a Pink Rolls-Royce as a sign of success in his books, now I think I know why).
  4. Some of my favorite shots are the simple ones: Like the scene when they’re in jail, and cutting the garlic super super thinly with a razor blade. Small details like this make the film seem more real.
  5. Love the innovative camera angles: like super-low angle looking upwards when main character is in the shower, or the super-high birds-eye-view of when Joe Pesci gets killed — the composition looks beautiful.
  6. Great colors in the film, and the use of RED when there is killing, danger, etc. Love the simple scene when they’re all eating dinner with Joe Pesci’s mom before they go bury the body like no big deal.
  7. Lesson: Any film with Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci is great.
