I'm also a big Sharon Stone fan and that also helps enjoying this film more, as one of the main criticisms often is that her character is sometimes annoying in this film.
The Rodent
Casino is based on the true story of Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal who was hired as Foreman to three Mob owned Casinos in Vegas back in the 1970s and 80s and Scorsese's masterpiece, though with a few of the facts changed, gives the viewer a huge and entertaining bite of the lifestyle witnessed by the real life gamblers, hustlers and Mob Bosses from history.
The cast is what really shines for me in Casino, Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro are the greatest movie duo ever, and it's no surprise Scorsese used them both in Casino and Goodfellas.
