The Real Goodfella (2006)

**** (out of 4)

Martin Scorsese's GOODFELLAS is one of the most loved movies ever made and this documentary tells us what happened to Henry Hill after the movie ended. We start off learning what truths were covered up in the film including the real violence that was happening with some of the lead characters in the film as well as what really happened to cause Hill to rat out his friends.

THE REAL GOODFELLA is a terrific documentary that fans of the film are going to love for a number of reasons. The biggest reason is the fact that you get to hear how crazy and violent this crew were and we get some nice comments from Scorsese about some of the changes that were done. There are also members of the FBI here talking about the real doings as well as authors and experts on the Mob.

Of course, the highlight is getting to hear from Hill. The man himself is interviewed here, cussing up a storm and discussing the various problems that happened in his life. He's certainly quite the character so hearing him explaining his life, his great times and his fear of being murdered are quite interesting.
