Joe Pesci is explosively out of control in this 1995 Martin Scorsese film, while Robert De Niro is in control throughout,  and James Woods, in a smaller role, is all tics and nerves. The supporting roles are worth a close look — both Don Rickles and Dick Smothers are used very, very well here — but it’s hard to avert your eyes from Sharon Stone, who embodies the film’s femme fatale with maximum effectiveness.
