The film marks the eighth collaboration between director Scorsese and De Niro. Supporting characters include Nicky Santoro Pesci , a " made man " and friend of Sam, and Ginger McKenna Stone , a streetwise chip hustler whom Sam marries and has a daughter with.
The film details Sam's operation of the casino, the difficulties he confronts in his job, the Mafia's involvement with the casino, and the gradual breakdown of his relationships and standing, as Las Vegas changes over the years.
The primary characters are based on real people: Sam is inspired by the life of Frank Rosenthal , also known as "Lefty," who ran the Stardust , Fremont , Marina , and Hacienda casinos in Las Vegas for the Chicago Outfit from the early s until Nicky and Ginger are based on mob enforcer Anthony Spilotro and former dancer and socialite Geri McGee , respectively.
Casino was released on November 22, , to mostly positive critical reception, and was a worldwide box office success. Sam doubles the casino's profits, which are skimmed by the mafia before taxes are paid.
Nicky's volatile temper and Chicago criminal background eventually gets him placed into the Nevada Black Book , banning Nicky from every casino in Nevada.
Dominick and Frankie gather their own experienced mob crew, and often engage in non-sanctioned shakedowns and elaborate burglaries instead.
Sam meets and falls in love with beautiful hustler , dancer, and former prostitute Ginger McKenna. They have a daughter and marry, but their marriage is quickly thrown into turmoil due to Ginger's relationship with her former boyfriend, con artist -turned- pimp Lester Diamond.
Ginger turns to alcohol and develops an increasingly problematic drug addiction. In , Sam fires slot manager Don Ward for incompetence.
When Ward's brother-in-law, Clark County Commission chairman Pat Webb, fails to convince Sam to rehire Don, Webb arranges for Sam's gaming license to be denied, jeopardizing his position.
Sam blames Nicky's recklessness for ongoing police and Nevada Gaming Board pressure, and the two argue furiously in the Mojave desert.
Sam starts hosting a local television talk show, upsetting both Nicky and the Chicago bosses for making himself such a public figure and bringing unwanted attention to their operations.
Piscano writes everything he knows about the operations in a notebook. Sam seeks to divorce Ginger, who kidnaps their daughter, planning to flee to Europe with her and Lester.

This is all well and good, but on the other hand, the gradual evolution can only happen because the film is so long--it clocks in just a couple minutes shy of 3 hours.
That's a bit too long for the story being told. By at least the halfway point, it starts to feel a bit draggy. All the material is necessary to the story, but it could have been tightened up a lot more.
While I like the songs--I've owned the CD since it came out and I listen to it often enough--and the songs can help set the mood for some scenes, they become a bit too incessant and overbearing for the story after awhile.
It begins to approach the dreaded "mix tape" mentality, where the songs are just there because the director wanted to share some bitchin' tunes that he likes a lot.
A bit of ebb and flow with the music, and music better correlated to the drama, would have worked even better. Presumably, Scorsese was shooting for something like a sensory assault, since that's what you get in Vegas.
The visuals are filled with neon lights, flashy clothes I love Rothstein's suits , flashy people and such.
The soundtrack is probably meant to match. But in that case, if I were directing, I think I would have went for a combination of commissioned music that incorporated a lot of casino sounds, or that mimicked a lot of casino sounds--the cacophonous electronic symphony of various machines constantly going through their modes--with schmaltzy show tunes, ala Liza, Jerry Vale, Tom Jones, Wayne Newton, etc.
That Scorsese was trying to give a Vegas-styled sensory assault is also supported by the audio-visual contrast between the Vegas scenes and the scenes in other locations, such as Kansas City.
So I can understand the motivation, but I'm not sure the final result exactly worked. Of course the performances are exceptional, even if everyone is playing to type, except for maybe Woods.
The plot and characters are written and performed so that the viewer can see the disasters coming way before the characters can--and that's how it should be.
For example, as a viewer, you know as soon as it starts that it's a bad idea for Rothstein to kowtow to McKenna to win her hand in marriage, but Rothstein is blind in love and he ends up paying for it.
Everything unfolds almost a bit predictably in this respect, and another slight flaw is that we're shown the penultimate moment of the film right at the very beginning.
It tends to make it feel even more stretched out, as you keep anticipating that scene. But the slight flaws shouldn't stop anyone from seeing this film, and of course, quite a few viewers feel that there are no flaws at all.

Casino Bande-annonce 2 VF. Il fatto che Nicky frequenti la moglie di Asso inizia ad insospettire i boss di Detroit. Remo Gaggi ne parla con Frank Marino, braccio destro di Nicky, consigliandogli molta cautela.
Un giorno Ginger, ormai fuori controllo per la sua tossicodipendenza, arriva a legare la figlia al letto per andare a fare sesso con Nicky in una stanza d'albergo.
Dopo averlo scoperto Sam la butta fuori di casa lasciandola senza soldi, ma la mattina dopo Ginger ritorna e, in preda all'alcol e alla droga, inizia a fare una scenata pretendendo la chiave della cassetta di sicurezza di Los Angeles, dove sono custoditi i soldi; dopo averla presa, Ginger viene arrestata dall' FBI per favoreggiamento ma, ormai, l'FBI ha tutte le tessere del mosaico in mano e in breve tempo arresta tutti.
Artie Piscano muore stroncato da un infarto quando viene arrestato, gli altri mafiosi vengono processati con un rischio dai 25 anni di reclusione all'ergastolo.
Proprio durante la pausa di un'udienza, i mafiosi decidono di uccidere i responsabili e i possibili testimoni. Ginger, rimasta praticamente senza un soldo, muore di overdose in un motel di Los Angeles.
Nicky e suo fratello Dominick vengono massacrati a colpi di mazza, dato che la bomba non era stata autorizzata, e seppelliti ancora vivi da Frank Marino e i suoi uomini.
A Sam viene affidato un compito diverso: ritornare a puntare scommesse per la famiglia a San Diego. Scorsese era in un certo senso "obbligato" a girare il film, ma venne spronato dalla sceneggiatura di Pileggi, con cui aveva lavorato in Quei bravi ragazzi.
Ma si tratta di fare digressioni per poi tornare alla storia, montare tutto in modo veloce per riportare tutto al racconto.
Finita la sceneggiatura, a fianco di Scorsese, Pileggi corse ad ultimare il libro, Casino: Love and Honor in Las Vegas , che doveva uscire prima della pellicola.Um möglichst jedem noch so kleinen Detail von Nicholas Pileggis Tatsachenroman gerecht zu werden, wirft Scorsese sein gesamtes Können in die Waagschale: Nicht nur mit beeindruckenden Bildersequenzen hält der Regisseur den Zuschauer gefangen. Die Glücksritterin ist auf der Suche nach Reichtum und aus diesem Grund willigt Pferderennbahn Güdingen ein, Rothstein zu heiraten. Martin Scorsese.
