Martin Scorsese’s iconic film Goodfellas introduced generations to life in the mafia. In this Up Against the Mob season finale, Elie is joined by two former SDNY colleagues, Lisa Zornberg, former Chief of the Criminal Division, and Daniel Chung, a former Assistant U.S. Attorney. They examine the story of Goodfellas, analyzing what’s accurate, what’s not, and share some of their own real-life experiences of taking on organized crime.
