One of the most memorable lines from a movie, placed masterfully across the intro set-up:

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster. – To me, being a gangster was better than being president of the United States.

That’s Henry Hill, played by Ray Liotta, in Goodfellas by Martin Scorsese.

Ray Liotta died this week.

Of course, I now had to rewatch Goodfellas, as well as Something Wild.
