Angela Hull from Filmtakeout says:
"I don’t need to be sheltered and saved by a man from the evils of the world. I want to look it straight in the face and see it for what it is. I’m not afraid of hard subjects or dark material. Goodfellas has plenty of violence, but violence is sadly a part of our world. I could list tons of events in recent news that have been just as bad, if not worse, than what we see here. While the film takes place in the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s, it’s not that different from our world now. Some cops are dirty, some criminals kill for fun. These aren’t tropes of the past world, but our reality now. Let’s stop assuming that women aren’t strong enough for these. Sensitivity isn’t gendered."
