Casino

Overview

With the intensity of a Jacobean tragedy, Casino unfolds its tale of a love triangle between a gambler, his wife, and his henchman amid the glittering, festering Babylon of Las Vegas. The film makes daring use of voice-over and rapidly shifting points of view and time frame, leaving conventional film language far behind.

From the author of Wiseguy (made into the movie Goodfellas), comes this tale of love, marriage, adultery, ...

Overview

With the intensity of a Jacobean tragedy, Casino unfolds its tale of a love triangle between a gambler, his wife, and his henchman amid the glittering, festering Babylon of Las Vegas. The film makes daring use of voice-over and rapidly shifting points of view and time frame, leaving conventional film language far behind.

From the author of Wiseguy (made into the movie Goodfellas), comes this tale of love, marriage, adultery, murder, and revenge mafia-style. Both a love story and a bigger-than-life business story, Casino exposes the secrets of Las Vegas's multibillion-dollar casino gambling industry--and how the mob finally lost its stranglehold over it.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The basis for the Martin Scorsese movie of the same name, Pileggi's true-crime account charts the rise and fall of a pair of Vegas hoods. (June)
Library Journal
The author of Wiseguy (LJ 2/1/86) (filmed as Goodfellas) serves up another colorful tale of Mafia misdeeds. Pileggi's primary source is gambler Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal (who luckily survived a car bomb), and the focus is on the mob takeovers of the Stardust and Tropicana casinos, using Teamster pension funds, in the 1970s. Mafia infighting between the Chicago and Kansas City factions, coupled with court convictions, effectively halted organized crime's Las Vegas gold mine in the 1980s. Published to coincide with the release of the Martin Scorsese film, starring Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone, and Joe Pesci, this episodic, lively book is likely to be a hit movie. Recommended for popular collections. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/95.]-Gregor A. Preston, Univ. of California Lib., Davis
From Barnes & Noble
From the author of the best-selling Mafia expos‚, Wiseguy, comes this inside story of the billion-dollar gambling industry and the secretive, dangerous men who run it. At the heart of this true tale of love, revenge, and murder Mafia-style are some of the most memorable characters in mob lore: Lefty, the brains of the mob's Vegas casinos; Tony Spilotro, the mob's muscle; and Geri, Lefty'sadulterous show-girl wife.
