As far as mafia movies go, Goodfellas is usually placed right along with the all-time classics. Ray Liotta played the Irish gangster Henry Hill who gelled with the Italian Mafia ever since he was a child. His scenes with Mobster Tommy (played to perfection by Joe Pesci) are considered iconic. It is said that there are a lot of improvised scenes in the movie as well, between Ray Liotta and other actors.
