Very passionate early effort by Scorsese, some great dialog and a really good story.
Oh, you pronounce! Ey, geddaloadda dis guy, he pronounces! I didn't know nobody was gettin' married 'ere, there wus gonna be pronouncing aaaal pronounce you, ya mook ya
I found myself indulging in the dialogue throughout this film, it is indeed witty. I just love those long pointless dialogues in Scorsese's films.
Young DeNiro playing a mental character in a movie
= Perfection by all means. Unbelievably satisfying.
