Watching Lorraine

I once again turned to the escapism offered by the movies after struggling through a rough day at work yesterday.
I watched the MARTIN SCORSESE film, "GOODFELLAS," which I hadn't seen in what seemed like ages.

If you watch a film enough times, you can indulge yourself in appreciating the film's details without fear of losing touch with the plot.

Last night, I paid closer attention to
LORRAINE BRACCO as she portrayed Karen Hill.
Her importance to the film becomes evident: Scorsese utilizes her voiceover narration for certain scenes -- instead of the Henry Hill character.

Bracco earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role, and we see her character progress from pride and elation of her lifestyle to outrage over her husband's infidelity, before entering a drug-fueled madness toward the film's conclusion.
