Product Description

Shooting Henry Hill is a documentary film focused on the life of mafia turncoat Henry Hill. Henry Hill's life of crime was forever immortalized in the 1990 film 'Goodfellas'. But Henry's life continues on as he finds himself in the small Nebraska town of North Platte. For the first time, Shooting Henry Hill goes beyond romanticized mob tales. Henry's life has been anything but boring. He is the same guy portrayed by Ray Liota; but now, 62 years old. A lot has happened in the 25 years since testifying against the Mob. He has been in and out of jail and still struggles with his addiction. This is a one of a kind glimpse into the life of the best known real mobster ever to be portrayed in American film. Ron Silver and the rest of the film crew are in for far more than they ever expected. This documentary is about more than telling Henry's story, it's about the experience of shooting Henry Hill.

Being a big fan of "Goodfellas," I was looking forward to this documentary. Unfortunately, this is pretty dull. Henry is discovered as a cook in a small Nebraska town that has a significant meth problem. This film covers Henry's difficulties in staying straight and his domestic and drug problems, which are more depressing than interesting. Henry mumbles so bad that the film makers were forced to use subtitles for him. There is very little discussion of Henry's "old days" in New York and the special features on "Goodfellas" are better if that is what you are looking for. Thus, I suggest you skip it.

I thought this would be a good DVD but was very dissapointed. This documentary makes the local news look like Emmy Winners.

Henry Hill has nothing left to offer anyone and just rambles on about his difficulties in adjusting to ordinary life. He needed subtitles just to make the viewers understand him.

Seriously, do not waste your money. You will regret it like I did.

It is a shame Henry Hill has sunk as low as he has. It would be interesting to see a follow up on this documentary to see if he has shed the problems he dealt with in this movie.
