Was thinking about this today. Perhaps a forgotten film that I still think is great- Rush
I also love Scott Hicks films- Shine and Snow Falling on Cedars; great auteurs are few and far between these days. Additionally, I will watch anything by Darren Aronofsky (although the Fountain was a little painful)

Casino just wasn't promoted at the same level as Goodfellas was.
Perhaps in the USA it was received better?
Ask people yourself. Mention Goodfellas. Almost everyone saw it.
Ask them about Casino and few, if any remember this film.
That's been my results and that is why Casino is on my list.
Perhaps it's a geographical thing?
