Very passionate early effort by Scorsese, some great dialog and a really good story.

Not sure why there are so many negative comments, for me this is a film I always look forward to and enjoy watching. Lots of style, great music, and some really memorable scenes.

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.

@ClassicLady "So far, of all the Scorsese movies I've seen, I like HUGO the best" What are you? Five?

Scorsese's first landmark film. Still has some shocking direction today, even though a lot of films have copied off of it since then. I'm sure it was a complete revelation at the time. A good indie film - with some dodgy dubbing - that's a bit bleak, but good on characters.

Good acting all round. Robert De Niro was exemplary!

I would say that I prefer ScorseseĀ“s recent work more than this movie, they all great, he knows how to write a great movie and this one is a prove of that.
I like the movie, although I think that other works by him are better and superior.
3.5/5

Watchable at best. Not much happened, though dialogue was good.

A very boring film if you ask me. Nothing much going on, waste of my time

One of the worst and most boring movies I have ever seen in my goddamn life. Only the acting was good.
