VIDEO: The five greatest Scorsese scenes – episode #5 Goodfellas

Martin Scorsese is widely considered to be one of the best living film directors. As a major retrospective of his work opens at ACMI, film scholar Bruce Isaacs dissects five classic Scorsese scenes.

In episode five, Isaacs analyses two related but very different scenes: the famous Copacabana Steadicam tracking shot from Goodfellas (1990) and the digital tracking shot from the opening scene in Hugo (2011).
