      Martin Scorsese, 1995 • Adapting another of Nicolas Pileggi’s journalistic accounts, Scorsese makes a gorgeous spectacle of 1970s’ Las Vegas. Robert de Niro plays a gambler named Sam (Ace) Rothstein who is hired by the mob to manage a casino for them. He runs the place with finesse until his deranged childhood pal, Nicky (Joe Pesci), turns up and entangles Ace in his crimes. Ace’s obsessive attraction to a mercenary beauty (Sharon Stone) only fuels his downward spiral. Through vibrant color and an eye for the inner machinery of the casino’s workings, Scorsese creates a stunning tableau of excess. 35mm

      Cost: 5.00
