>GOODFELLAS: MOB GRUEL DIRECTOR MARTIN SCORSESE BRINGS HIS VAST TALENT AND such actors as Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Ray Liotta to this story of the machinations of a scummy bunch of gangsters. It's like bringing bolts of fine silk to a pot-holder bee. There's no sense of tragedy because most of the frequent and graphically rendered violent incidents happen only to insignificant people who deserve their fates. After a while you just wish a building would fall on everybody. (Warner)
