Recommended Posts

Okay, I am trying to find some decent gangster films to watch over the crimbo period...

 

My current favourites are

 

Gangster Number One click here for a clip

Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

Snatch

Reservoir Dogs

Transporter

Pulp Fiction

Essex Boys

Godfather

and not really gangster, but kind of underworld crime related I guess, The Italian Job.

 

Started watching Scarface, but rapidly lost interest...

 

Any others...?

Road To Perdition is 1 that leaps to mind, (Tom Hanks, Daniel Craig & Paul newman.)

 

Also an Aussie one called " Blue Murder " ( saw a while back &w as outstanding) a true tale of Australais biggest heroin dealer also doubling as the NSW Police Chief ( Roger Rogerson) & his band of corrupt Drug squad assasins & half of the Sydney underworld on payroll.

 

Inc 1 band of nutters led by the infamous down under gangster type"Neddy Smith" Smith & his boyz were given what was called the "Green Light" byt he powers that be ( Police) & they run a mock in the underworld & beyond.

 

Great tale, true story. Was banned here for many years appar due to being to real & affecting the court case that also took near a decade to sort.

 

In real life, a tonne of coppers lost their oibs, many ened up in jail.

 

Deffo wrth a look if can get a copy.

If you cut the last one off and pretend it was never made then yes.

The Godfather part 1 was fantastic .

 

The Godfather part 2 was even better .

 

The Godfather part 3 was poor .

 

Scarface is the best for me and Carlito's way has gotta be up there as well .

 

The Business , Goodfella's , Chopper ( Eric Banna outstanding ) , things to do in Denver when you're dead , True Romance ( could that be included as its got the mafia in it ) .

 

But as pointed out above anything with Pacino or De-Niro in it is fantastic so i'll include '' Heat '' in my list aswell .
