In addition to Westerns, we will also be looking at gangster movies in class. The concept of a gangster is one I understand rather more than that of a cowboy, perhaps because they still exist, and consequently have a habit of sneaking into movies set in the 20th and 21st centuries that aren’t actually gangster films. That said, I can’t say I’m familiar with gangster movies, so this is still going to be an educational experience for me.
Apologies for not having posted of late; I’ve been rather bogged-down with schoolwork. I’ll let you know what I make of GoodFellas ASAP.
