The Crime Epics of Martin Scorsese (feat. Doug Pfeifer)
Noah and Chance look back through the spiritual trilogy of GOODFELLAS, CASINO and THE IRISHMAN for the groundbreaking style of Martin Scorsese, the sometimes goofy repetitions of that style, and the shadow history of America created by 10 hours of mafiosos, teamsters and their middlemen.
Oh, and Chance’s dad—a Vegas craps dealer circa 1978—stops by for a lightning round of questions about “Casino” around the 44-minute mark.
