Episode 41: Casino (1995)

When you love someone, you’ve gotta trust them. There’s no other way. You’ve got to give them the key to everything that’s yours. Otherwise, what’s the point? And for a while, I believed that’s the kind of love I had.

Ace Rothstein, Casino


The eighth collaboration between director Martin Scorsese and actor Robert DeNiro, Casino brings the mob mentality of Goodfellas to the gambler’s paradise of Las Vegas. It’s a city filled with hustlers, junkies, hit men, cheaters, and questionable business practices; all controlled by the Kansas City mob and potentially destroyed by one man’s delusional love.

Are DeNiro and Joe Pesci just playing their characters from Goodfellas in this film? Is this a spiritual sequel to Goodfellas? Is there any way to watch this movie without constantly thinking about Goodfellas? Is it possible to put an equal amount of blueberries in mass produced muffins? And is the eye in the sky really watching us all? Take a gamble and join us as we hit the tables to talk about Casino.
