When You Live In The Fast Lane, There’s No Looking Back!
People call her WHITE GIRL. She’s spent most of her adolescent life robbing “tricks” and running from the cops. Holed up in Youth Authority medical facilities, and on her way to jail for 25 years, White Girl crosses paths with the psychotic CYCLONA. Cyclona is about to serve “life” when she becomes obsessed with White Girl, who doesn’t return the interest until she’s offered a shot at freedom. Together they hatch a plan and escape. There’s no turning back when White Girl realizes she’s on the lam with a serial killer who is following the call of hallucinatory visions and signs sent from “Hell.” In a race for their lives, these two desperados tear across the states, leaving a trail of chaos and mayhem on their bizarre road trip to Mexico.

From the box:
Three Decades Of Life In The Mafia.
When Martin Scorsese, one of the world’s most skillful and respected directors, reunited with two-time Oscar-winner Robert De Niro in GoodFellas, the result was one of the most powerful films of the year. Based on the true-life best seller Wiseguy by Nicholas Pileggi and backed by a dynamic pop/rock oldies soundtrack, critics and filmgoers alike declared GoodFellas great. It was named 1990’s best film by the New York, Los Angeles and National Society of Film Critics. And it earned six Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director.
Robert De Niro received wide recognition for his performance as veteran criminal Jimmy “The Gent” Conway. And as the volatile Tommy DeVito, Joe Pesci walked off with the Best Supporting Actor Oscar. Academy Award nominee Lorraine Bracco, Ray Liotta and Paul Sorvino also turned in electrifying performances.
You have to see it to believe it — then watch it again. GoodFellas explores the criminal life like no other movie.
