Scorsese shows the lure of a criminal lifestyle on an Irish-Italian boy in East Brooklyn, a working-class neighbourhood in New York. Between 1955 and 1980 Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) rises through the ranks to become mafia boss, only to end in coke-riddled delusions of grandeur. De Niro (Jimmy Conway) watches over him, but is unable to prevent Hill’s downfall.
In the summer of 2017, Eye staged an exhibition devoted to one of the most important American film directors of the past half-century: Martin Scorsese. Over the years, the director of such classics as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and The Wolf of Wall Street has elaborated a uniquely personal style of filmmaking.
