Casino

Director: Martin Scorsese.
Starring: Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Sharon Stone, James Woods. USA 1995. 171 mins.


Scorsese works again with Nicholas Pileggi, writer of GoodFellas, to create an epic, glossily stylised look at the Mafia’s involvement in Las Vegas in the '70s and '80s. The story centres on gambling fixer Ace (De Niro), sent west to oversee a casino, who falls out with strong-arm man Nicky (Pesci) over power, money and a woman (Stone). The sequences set behind the scenes of the casino are especially fascinating.
