Martin Scorsese
Released:
1995
Rating:
R

Casino is the acclaimed 1995 Las Vegas epic directed by Martin Scorsese (Taxi Driver, The Departed, Goodfellas, Raging Bull, The Last Temptation of Christ, Cape Fear, After Hours, The Aviator, Gangs of New York, Shutter Island). Casino spans three decades and chronicles the true story of a faction of the mob who ran Las Vegas casinos. Robert DeNiro (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Heat, The Godfather Part II, Meet the Parents) plays Ace Rothstein, a fantastic bookie who is chosen to run the Tangiers hotel and casino. Along the way, he marries a drug-addicted con-artist trophy wife (Sharon Stone, Basic Instinct, Sliver) and struggles with his friendship with loose-cannon Nicky Santoro (Joe Pesci, Goodfellas, Home Alone, The Super, With Honors, My Cousin Vinny). If you're at all interested in gangster/mafia films, or if you're at all a fan of director/co-writer Scorsese, novelist/co-writer Nicholas Pileggi (Goodfellas, or any of the film's all star cast, then Casino is without a doubt a must-see.
