8.30PM, SBS ★★★
Vegas! Violence! Vitriol! Yes, it’s always a punchy pleasure to watch master filmmaker Martin Scorsese messing with the mafia and its merry band of ‘made’ men. As in GoodFellas, Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci are childhood friends who rise through the ranks of organised crime without the proper pedigree. Once again, a lack of respect for the time-honoured ways of the mob telegraphs their demise. Co-stars Sharon Stone and James Woods.
