A perfect pairing of sound and vision Part 2. Goodfellas.

30 seconds of a man smoking a cigarette set to the tune of a Cream classic.

Sounds unremarkable right? Wrong. It's stunning. Martin Scorsese at his most magical. Takes a nothing moment and turns it into a scene that will give you goosebumps everytime you see it.

Just look at Robert De Niro's face. He doesn't say a word and out acts everyone. In the world. Ever.

The moment he decides he isn't going to share any of the money he robbed from the Lufthansa heist. Nope. He's just going to kill everyone instead.

And soundtracked by 'Sunshine Of Your Love'.

It doesn't get better than this.
