If you’d asked me last week if I’d ever seen Goodfellas, I’d have said something like “Yeah, 25–30 years ago. Great movie.” But I watched it over the weekend and not one scene seemed familiar. Did I see it 25–30 years ago and since forget everything, or did my mind somehow convince itself that I’d seen the movie?
It is indeed a great movie. If you haven’t seen it yet, do so. If you have, check out IMDB.com’s extensive trivia about the movie. If I somehow manage to live another 25–30 years, I’ll probably have dementia by then so could watch it again for the first time.
