U.S., 1995, 178 min, 35mm, Dir. Martin Scorsese, Rated R, Universal Pictures
“Martin Scorsese's intimate epic about money, sex and brute force is a grandly conceived study of what happens to goodfellas from the mean streets when they outstrip their wildest dreams and achieve the pinnacle of wealth and power.” – Todd McCarthy, Variety
Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci star in director Martin Scorsese's riveting look at how blind ambition, white-hot passion and 24-karat greed toppled an empire. Las Vegas 1973 is the setting for this fact-based story about the Mob's multi-million dollar casino operation - where fortunes and lives were made and lost with a roll of the dice. The final collaboration between director Martin Scorsese and actors Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci (before this year’s The Irishman, that is), Casino is one of the quintessential film’s in the trio’s collective oeuvre, telling a unique story about the intersection of money and violence. It was a critical and commercial success but while we’re drawn to the typical elements that make a Scorsese picture so good, pay close attention in this one to Sharon Stone’s supporting performance which was widely praised and garnered the actress a Golden Globe win and Academy Award nomination.
