Bugsy (1991) (C)
Release Date: December 12, 2006.
"The best picture of the year."
Warren Beatty and Annette Bening star in the incredible true story of Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel, the playboy gangster who betrayed the Mob for love. A cold-blooded killer who dreamed of Hollywood stardom, a crazed "patriot" who plotted against Mussolini, and the brilliant visionary who carved Las Vegas out of the dry Nevada desert, Bugsy had it all. Until he fell for the one woman who wanted more.
A critical masterpiece, Bugsy is a remarkable collaboration of Hollywood's best: director Barry Levinson, screenwriter James Toback, and an all-star supporting cast that includes Harvey Keitel, Oscar winner Ben Kingsley (Best Actor, Gandhi, 1982), Joe Mantegna, and Elliott Gould. But at the center of it all is the white-hot romance between Bugsy and the insatiable starlet, Virginia Hill. Their passionate love affair, tempestuous and ultimately tragic, makes Bugsy "the most entertaining and exciting American movie of the year" (David Denby, New York Magazine). -- (C) Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, 1991, USA.
