Based on: Nicholas Pileggi's Wiseguy (1986) When a film revolves around the Italian American mob and its daily flaunting of societal laws, one would think that the person such a film is based on would be rather reluctant to have their entire criminal life played out on-screen for all to see. Henry Hill though, never seemed to be too bothered about letting people know how deplorable he was as a young man in the '60s, '70s and '80s, even giving Martin Scorsese and Nicholas Pileggi an encouraging thumbs up after seeing the film, stating that they got as close to the truth as was possible. The law eventually caught up with Hill, and, after one incident post being placed into a witness protection program, the mob associate renounced his life of crime entirely, opting instead to write his own series of cookbooks. Hill passed away in 2012.
