Editors Note
Note Directed by Barry Levinson, BUGSY tells the true story of legendary New York mobster Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel. Visiting Hollywood "on business," the reckless and volatile Bugsy is drawn to Tinseltown and the glamour of the movies. Leaving his wife and kids in Scarsdale indefinitely, the womanizing Bugsy spends his time on movie lots and at Hollywood extravaganzas, contemplating his own potential stardom. But soon he falls hard for strong-willed actress Virginia Hill (Annette Bening), who isn't content with mistress status. A road trip to a down-trodden joint in the Nevada desert in a town called Las Vegas leads Bugsy to dream of building a world-class casino and turning the town into a moneymaker. Together Bugsy and Virginia--with backing from the mob--start building The Flamingo hotel and casino, hoping that legal gambling and five-star entertainment will entice the masses and rake in big bucks.
Rolling Stone "...Beatty is terrific....Bening also makes a knockout impression..." 01/09/1992 p.56
Sight and Sound "...An enthralling affirmation of everything Toback has ever wanted to put on film..." 04/01/1992 p.45-6
Los Angeles Times "...[A] very assured film....[Beatty] brings an enormous amount of brassy self-confidence to bear in this role, one that he clearly understands from the inside out..." 12/13/1991 p.F1
Uncut "Barry Levinson and production designer Dennis Gassner brilliantly evoke the corrupt glamour of Bugsy's illicitly glamorous world." 07/01/2004 p.131
Entertainment Weekly "The first hour or so of Barry Levinson's biopic still tingles with smarts and venom." -- Grade: B 12/15/2006 p.74
New York Times "Mr. Levinson was the dominant force on the set, and the film duly reflects his fundamentally comic sensibility..." 12/12/2006 p.E8
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he Oscar-winning costumes and art direction provide a glossy sense of time and place." 04/01/2007 p.149
