Casino 
"Casino" by Yojimbo
3/4 stars

Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci reunite with Martin Scorcese to tell the story of Sam Rothstein, egotistical boss of a fledgling gambling empire in Las Vegas. The pairing of DeNiro and Pesci is once again electrifying, each personifying the flashier, more respectable surface and seedier, brutal underbelly of the mob controlled casino respectively but ultimately it is their own egoism that becomes their undoing. Comparison with Goodfellas is inevitable and it does not quite match the quality of Scorcese's masterpiece but then again, not much does. It is rather glossier and less gritty, at least until the brutal climax and for me it concentrated a little too much on Rothstein's homelife but having said that, Sharon Stone is a revelation as his cynical gold-digging wife. A reliable formula executed with panache by an unmatched pairing of acting and directorial talent.
