Arriving five years after the classic Goodfellas, and initially overshadowed by its acclaim, Martin Scorsese's CASINO casts key members of his stock company in a story that struck many observers as a too-soon retread. But it has proved to be one of the director's most durable works, mixing relationship psychodrama, business satire, and bloody gangsterism into a concoction that could be described as an expressionistic faux-documentary. Cowritten by Scorsese and his Goodfellas collaborator Nicholas Pileggi's, based on Pileggi's reporting, and boasting multiple narrators, this is a three-hour epic chronicling Chicago and Kansas City mobsters' attempts to infiltrate Las Vegas in the 1970s and '80s, wash their dirty money, and skim the take from the casinos and resorts, but there's only so much normal that Scorsese gangsters can take before learning that time-honored Scorsese lesson: pride goes before a fall. Or a bullet in the brain. Or a pen in the neck. Or a bat to the head.
