By definition, gangsters are evil individuals. They’re criminals, hoodlums, and assassins. The best new gangster movies immerse us in their universes. Even if they do terrible things, it’s difficult not to be attracted to them. Now and then, we all enjoy gazing into the void. Seeing a film that dramatizes what it’s like to live and work in the violent criminal underground has a certain allure that you can’t ignore. Movies about gangsters and the mafia of all kinds have been released with amazing constancy since Francis Ford Coppola’s classic The Godfather rocked the world. Every year, at least a couple more current new gangster movies are released. Actors enjoy portraying these characters, as seen in a slew of recent new mafia movies.
The latest new gangster movies are on the list below.
20- The Irishman
Release date: 2019 (USA)
Director: Martin Scorsese
Adapted from: I Heard You Paint Houses
Awards: Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Acting Ensemble, MORE
Producers: Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese, Randall Emmett, MORE
Nominations: Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Acting Ensemble, MORE
Why: The Irishman is one of the new gangster movies of the decade, one of the finest films of Martin Scorsese, one of the finest films ever made. I feel like there’s so much to say about this film but no words could ever capture the brilliance of this film.
I have seen it twice now and I must say feelings towards certain scenes change as you watch it again. I could now appreciate the final hour of the film much more which communicates the futility and bleakness of the inevitable fate that is knocking right at the door of these men.
I just fell in love with the film. Martin Scorsese made a film with a dream team of Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, and Harvey Keitel among others. The performances are just perfect, to be honest. There is nothing wrong with any of the performances. I couldn’t pinpoint a single scene where I felt a particular performance was not great.
Plot: Frank Sheeran, an elderly Irish-American World War II veteran, describes his time as a Mafia hitman in a nursing facility. In 1950s Philadelphia, Sheeran works as a union delivery truck driver, and he begins to sell part of the contents of his shipments to local criminal Skinny Razor, a member of the Philadelphia crime family led by Angelo Bruno.
Sheeran’s employer accuses him of stealing, but after Sheeran refuses to tell the judge who his clients are, union lawyer Bill Bufalino has the case dropped. Bill introduces Sheeran to Russell Bufalino, the head of the Northeastern Pennsylvania mafia family.
Sheeran begins painting houses, a euphemism for contract killing, for Russell and other members of the South Philadelphia mafia.
Initial release: May 5, 2020
Director: Clark Duke
Music by: The Flaming Lips Alexander Taylor Matthew James
Based on: Arkansas; by John Brandon
Production companies: Hercules Film Fund; Rhea Films; Storyboard Media; Sprockfeller Pictures; Don Kee Productions; Media Finance Capital
Distributed by: Lionsgate Films
Why: I enjoyed these New Gangster Movies. The Devendra Banhart/Flaming Lips soundtrack also really enhanced the film, giving it a Southern Surrealist feel. I highly recommend this film. It has some definite great Southern dialog, one of my favorites, “I didn’t get this smart on accident.”
Plot: Kyle Ribb, a drug dealer who is part of a loose criminal organization led by a man named Frog, is “promoted” to move goods wholesale in Arkansas. Kyle and his new buddy, Swin Horn, meet Bright, a Frog-affiliated park warden. He says that Kyle and Swin will work under his supervision, residing on the park grounds under the guise of park employees while trafficking drugs across the southern United States.
Swin started to date Johnna, a nurse who introduces him to a curio shop owner who is strange. Kyle and Swin are given orders to accomplish a deal in Castor, Louisiana, where they deliver merchandise to a chatty Greek man by a woman named “Her.” Nick, his grandson, joins them on their journey back to Arkansas. In a battle over Nick’s gun, he tackles Bright in his home and subsequently tortures him for his hoard of cash, but both are slain. Kyle and Swin bury the remains, believing they will be accused if Frog’s organization finds out what occurred. Kyle goes back to Castor and kills the elderly Greek.
18- Silk Road
Director: Tiller Russell
Writers: Tiller Russell(written for the screen by)David Kushner(based on the article “Dead End on Silk Road: Internet Crime Kingpin Ross Ulbricht’s Big Fall” by)
Stars: Nick RobinsonJennifer YunJimmi Simpson
Why: The Silk Road is one of the New Gangster Movies by Tiller Russell with an Excellent, fairly accurate, assessment of what took place, and the Strong acting of Nick RobinsonJennifer YunJimmi Simpson makes it more interesting. I have seen it twice now and I must say feelings towards certain scenes change as you watch it again. The film does a good job of making the viewer understand Ulbricht’s motives.
Plot: The FBI and DEA agent Rick Bowden, dubbed the “Jurassic Narc,” apprehended Silk Road founder Ross Ulbricht. Ross Ulbricht, a young, enthusiastic, and ambitious young man, builds Silk Road, the internet’s first unregulated bazaar. Ulbricht attracts the attention of Rick Bowden, a dangerously erratic DEA agent who uses any means necessary to bring him down as the site becomes a multimillion-dollar drug pipeline.
Release date: April 16, 2021 (USA)
Director: George Gallo
Music composed by: Aldo Shllaku
Story by: Samuel Bartlett
Produced by: Richard Salvatore; David E. Ornston; Nate Adams
Distributed by: Lionsgate
Why: Action-packed, full of suspense, I love how the movie ends these new gangster movies rocked! It was full of action, and although there were a few plot holes, it was a lot better than a lot of these other flicks out right now. It’s a solid viewing once you get past the initial shock. It’s a thumbs up for me!
Plot: By holding her daughter hostage, retired crippled detective Damon (Morgan Freeman) compels Victoria (Ruby Rose), a former drug courier and his carer, to collect bags of money around the city in a single night. Victoria discovers that at every stop point she makes throughout the night, strange villains from her past assault her. Meanwhile, a cop breaks into Damon’s house and is killed by Damon.
Victoria is apprehended and escorted to the Governor’s residence on her final trip. The Governor asks Victoria for assistance in taking down Damon, but Victoria declines and kills him instead. As she returns to Damon’s residence, Victoria is reunited with her daughter.
Release date: March 26, 2021 (USA)
Director: Ilya Naishuller
Box office: 57.5 million USD
Budget: 16 million USD
Music composed by: David Buckley
Producers: Bob Odenkirk, David Leitch, Kelly McCormick, Marc Provissiero, Braden Aftergood
Why: Fairly standard action premise, but executed well and the low budget lends to the feel of the film. Odenkirk is a surprisingly compelling action lead, and the writing doesn’t feel cheesy or cliched considering the subject material.
It’s not cookie-cutter, the hero is fallible and isn’t invincible by any means, the family angle isn’t sappy or distracting, and we get to see Christopher Lloyd dual-wielding shotguns. This is what fun activity is supposed to be, and it’s miles ahead of other new gangster movies that are over-stylized or laser-focused on one aspect.
It does everything it tries to do VERY well, and the pacing is near flawless in my estimation. You’re not getting Citizen Kane, you’re getting exactly what you want by watching this type of film and I honestly hope we see a sequel.
Plot:: Emmy Award winner Hutch Mansell is played by Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul, The Post, Nebraska), an underappreciated and neglected father and a husband who takes life’s indignities in stride and never complains.
He’s a nobody. Hutch refuses to defend himself or his family when two burglars sneak into his suburban home one night, seeking to avoid major violence. Blake (Gage Munroe, The Shack) is unsatisfied with him, and Becca (Connie Nielsen, Wonder Woman) appears to be drifting away from him.
Hutch’s long-simmering rage is reawakened by the incident’s aftermath, which leads him on a deadly path that reveals dark secrets and dangerous skills. In a whirlwind of punches, gunfire, and squealing tires, Hutch must save his family from a ruthless antagonist (renowned Russian actor Aleksey Serebryakov, Amazon’s McMafia) while assuring that he’ll never be regarded as an anybody again.
15- Wrath of Man
Release date: May 7, 2021 (USA)
Director: Guy Ritchie
Box office: $104 million
Based on: Cash Truck; by Nicolas Boukhrief
Music by: Chris Benstead
Distributed by: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Miramax, Lionsgate Films
Why: The movie is so good with a wonderful selection of characters, and has a unique way of unfolding events divided into nicely titled chapters. Jason has always been one of my favorite actors since childhood, was very impressive and convincing in the new gangster movies. Beautiful dialogues that make a scene feel gritty and suspenseful. Guy Ritchie did a beautiful job directing this one and deserves an award. Highly recommend this for the John Wick and Nobody fans.
Plot: A new security guard on a cash truck, mysterious and wild-eyed, impresses his coworkers when he unleashes precision talents during a heist. He has no notion who he is or where he came from, and the rest of the team has no idea who he is. The marksman’s ultimate goal becomes clear as he makes dramatic and irrevocable efforts to settle a score.
14- In Bruges
Release date: February 8, 2008 (USA)
Director: Martin McDonagh
Box office: 34.5 million USD
Music by: Carter Burwell
Budget: $15 million
Distributed by: Focus Features, Universal Pictures, Film4 Productions, Blueprint Pictures
Why: The only new gangster movies watch whenever I want to have quality alone time and still feel fresh. The background score by Curt Burwell gives you goosebumps. It’s funny, violent, unexpected, and unpredictable. Gleason and Farrell are at their best, refreshingly with their accents.
The film is offensive on many levels / so plenty of whining material for the snowflakes. The ending is so dramatic and meaningful that you will end up loving and respecting every character. Just Brilliant!
Plot: Martin McDonagh’s feature-length debut, In Bruges, is a 2008 black comedic crime film written and directed by him. Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson star as two Irish hitmen on the run from their enraged boss, Ralph Fiennes. The film was shot in and around Bruges, Belgium. On February 8, 2008, In Bruges opened in limited release in the United States as the opening night film of the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.
For his work in the new gangster movies, Farrell won the Golden Globe for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, while Gleeson was nominated in the same category.  McDonagh won the BAFTA Award for Best Original Screenplay and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
13- Point Break 1991
Release date: July 12, 1991 (USA)
Director: Kathryn Bigelow
Music by: Mark Isham
Story by: Rick King; W. Peter Iliff
Box office: $83.5 million
Distributed by: Warner Bros. Pictures, 20th Century Studios, Pathé
Why: Patrick Swayze is very convincing and has good cast choices in supporting roles like John C McGinley and Gary Busey. I think it is also a great performance from Keanu Reeves and the role was born for him I reckon. I feel the film is a strong blend of action and crime thriller.
Watched it in full for the first time last week and realized they were the ‘Ex-presidents’. Glued to the new gangster movies, and loved the action, chemistry, dialogue, and quotes. Inspired me to try surfing yesterday as well — a gem of a film. Try not to get too obsessed. Watch and Let GO, Brah!
Plot: Point Break is a 1991 American action crime film directed by Kathryn Bigelow and written by W. Peter Iliff. The film stars Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves, Lori Petty, and Gary Busey. The new gangster movies title is a play on the term “point break,” which describes how a wave breaks when it reaches a jutting out from the coast point of land.
In the film, Reeves portrays an undercover FBI agent tasked with establishing the identities of a group of bank robbers while simultaneously forming a tangled relationship with the group’s leader.
It was shot over the western coast of the continental United States and was officially budgeted at $24 million before being released for traditional viewing on July 12, 1991.
12- The League of Gentlemen (1960)
Release date: April 5, 1960 (United Kingdom)
Director: Basil Dearden
Adapted from: The League of Gentlemen
Music by: Philip Green
Distributed by: British Lion Films
Why: An enjoyable effort in the Ealing vein, more specifically in the black comic vein of “Kind Hearts and Coronets” or “The Naked Truth”, with fairly upper-class individuals gleefully straying from the straight and narrow. The fact that one is encouraged to sympathize with what is essentially a band of upper-class soldiers succumbing to criminality is a mark of the new gangster movies whimsical success. The ex-soldiers wit, friendship, and subtle pathos are expertly crafted; stranded in peacetime, the planned theft allows some scope for their abilities.
Plot: Lieutenant Colonel Hyde, who has been forced to retire, enlists the help of seven other dissatisfied ex-soldiers for a special mission. Each man has a dark past, is cash-strapped, and is a service-trained specialist in his field. The job is a bank robbery, and despite civilian irritants, Hyde and second-in-command Race instill military discipline and planning in the group.
11- The Killing (1956)
Release date: May 20, 1956 (USA)
Director: Stanley Kubrick
Adapted from: Clean Break
Music by: Gerald Fried
Distributed by: United Artists
Why: An exciting fast-tracked new gangster movies noir, this. It is interesting in that it shows the lead-up to the heist of $2 million from a racetrack from the point of view of each gang member. It is a finely tuned operation planned down to the last detail by the gang leader expertly portrayed by Sterling Hayden. Finely tuned that is except that he didn’t include the ” what if’s”. What if there,’s a gkit. What if something goes wrong?
Plot: Johnny Clay has put together a five-man gang, including two insiders, to pull off a $2 million theft at Lansdowne Racetrack, with the proceeds split five ways after expenditures. Except for Johnny, none of the men are criminals in the traditional sense.
Johnny has hired two guys outside of the team to carry out certain responsibilities for a flat cost; the other four team members will not meet or know who the two men for hire are, and the two men for hire will not be notified of the heist’s larger picture. Nobody, not even their loved ones, is allowed to know about the employment.
10- Mafioso (1962)
Release date: October 25, 1962 (Italy)
Director: Alberto Lattuada
Music by: Piero Piccioni; Nino Rota
Distributed by: Rialto Pictures
Why: An excellent new mafia movies; from the opening scene, where the music keeps wonderful time with its surroundings in a factory, the film quickly takes you to Sicily and the where the plot begins quickly and relentlessly.
Alberto Sordi was a great actor, in both comedy and drama. He excels as the guy picked to do the “job”. The Don and his aide are excellent. The script is tight and the direction is perfect. A no-nonsense depiction of the Mafia”s world without embellishments. A must-see.
Plot: Antonio is a jovial, meticulous employee at a northern Italian auto manufacturer. He chooses to take his wife and two girls to Sicily for a holiday so that they can see his hometown and meet his family. He’s looking forward to showing them around and dispelling many of the preconceptions about Sicilians. He even debunks Mafia stereotypes, claiming that being a Mafioso as a teen was akin to being a messenger boy. However, when Antonio reminisces about his time in Sicily, he discovers that there are more sides to being a Sicilian than he realized.
9- A Better Tomorrow (1986)
Release date: August 2, 1986 (Hong Kong)
Director: John Woo
Film series: A Better Tomorrow
Awards: Hong Kong Film Award for Best Actor, Hong Kong Film Award for Best Film
Languages: English, Chinese, Cantonese, Mandarin
Screenplay: John Woo, Chan Hing-Ka, Leung Suk-Wah
Why: This film just works!! Besides Woo’s top-notch action sequences, I was amazed by the great story. Chow Yun Fat is great as Mark and Leslie Cheung is very good as Kit. However, I believe the main focus should be on Ti Lung, who is fantastic as Ho. The importance of the story of loyalty and friendship cannot be overstated. Furthermore, the chemistry between the performers is so obvious that you can tell they had a lot of fun creating this new gangster movies. This is something I could see myself watching over and over again.
Plot: The plot revolves around two brothers, one of them is a successful counterfeiter and the other a recent graduate of Hong Kong’s police academy. The plot revolves around the schism that happens when the younger brother learns that his elder brother is a criminal, as well as the criminal brother’s efforts to reform. Along the way, there are a lot of heists, double-crosses, and shootouts.
8- Scarface (1983)
Release date: December 9, 1983 (USA)
Director: Brian De Palma
Adapted from: Scarface
Music by: Giorgio Moroder
Box office: $66 million
Distributed by: Universal Pictures
Why: Scarface is the best gangster movie of all time with Al Pacino’s spectacular performance as Tony Montana. The movie has so many violent moments with the shootouts and people getting cut up in pieces with a chainsaw but the scenes remain so iconic with everything in it.
The story was great with Tony Montana having his power rising and falling is one of the greatest storytelling in a gangster movie. It is amazing and these were nice 2 hours and 50 minutes to watch.
Plot: Tony Montana can depart Cuba during the Mariel migration in 1980. He ends up in a refugee camp in Florida, but his buddy Manny has a plan for them: hire a contract assassin and make arrangements to earn a green card. When a deal with Colombian drug dealers goes bad, he swiftly joins drug dealer Frank Lopez’s crew and proves his worth. Furthermore, he brings a new level of brutality to Miami.
Tony is protective of his younger sister, but his profession is obvious to his mother who has disowned him. Tony, on the other hand, is impatient and demands everything, including Frank’s empire and his woman Elvira Hancock. Tony’s extreme behaviors, however, make him a target once he reaches the top, and everything falls apart.
7- Donnie Brasco (1997)
Release date: February 28, 1997 (USA)
Director: Mike Newell
Adapted from: Donnie Brasco: My Undercover Life in the Mafia
Box office: $124.9 million
Nominations: Academy Award for Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay), MORE
Distributed by: TriStar Pictures, Summit Entertainment
Why: An incredible new gangster movies that are based on a true story. Director Mike Newell does an excellent job behind the screen but what’s on the screen is even better. The acting is brilliant all around, but this is Johnny Depp’s movie. Another amazing part of the movie is the story and the tense buildup it has. This is a powerful movie that should be viewed by any mob movie fan or just a movie fan in general.
Plot: Donnie Brasco is a criminal drama film from 1997 directed by Mike Newell and starring Al Pacino and Johnny Depp. Michael Madsen, Bruno Kirby, James Russo, and Anne Heche participated in supporting parts. The film, directed by Paul Attanasio, is based on the nonfiction book Donnie Brasco: My Undercover Life in the Mafia, written by Joseph D. Pistone and Richard Woodley and published in 1988.
Pistone (Depp), an FBI undercover agent who infiltrated the Bonanno crime family in New York City during the 1970s under the alias Donnie Brasco, a jewel thief from Vero Beach, Florida, is sloppily based on the true story of Pistone (Depp), an FBI undercover agent who infiltrated the Bonanno crime family in New York City during the 1970s under the alias Donnie Brasco, a jewel thief from Vero Beach Brasco gains the trust of an aging Mafia hitman, Lefty Ruggiero (Pacino), who swears him to secrecy. As Donnie becomes more involved in the Mafia, he learns that he is not only blurring the line between federal agent and criminal but also putting his friend Lefty in danger.
6- The General (1998)
Release date: May 29, 1998 (Ireland)
Director: John Boorman
Adapted from: The General
Music by: Richie Buckley
Box office: $4 million
Distributed by: Warner Bros. Pictures, Columbia Pictures, Sony Pictures Classics
Why: The general certainly delivers in terms of acting, direction, and entertainment value. It’s well-paced and funny, and all of the principal performers, especially Brendan Gleeson and Jon Voight, deliver terrific performances.
I would advise people to view these new gangster movies, but keep in mind that the man it depicts is not someone to be revered, but rather an example of the most heinous criminals Ireland has produced in recent years. “The devil has the best stories,” they say.
Plot: A Gang from Riverview plots a devious plan to overthrow the local priest in Chalk in Gravesend, southeast England, where trouble lurks around every corner. When it turns out that the priest understands karate, Dan Wakefield and his men are in for more than they bargained for.
5- Kids Return (1996)
Release date: July 27, 1996 (Japan)
Director: Takeshi Kitano
Music by: Joe Hisaishi
Film series: Kids Return
Distributed by: Office Kitano
Why: The character’s actions are quite natural, and their live personality has a strong impact on me. It will acquaint you more than his previous efforts. The boxing match is breathtaking. The characters’ friendship is unforgettable. Because this music is a significant component of Takeshi’s work, I must pay tribute to Jô Hisaishi (the composer).
The music is enthralling and inspiring. In any case, it’s a powerful film about adolescence. This work entices me to seek out more of Takeshi’s work. Because, aside from Kurosawa, it’s one of my favorite Japanese directors.
There will be decent films as well as outstanding new gangster movies. However, only one Kid will ever return. I’m not going to say anything about the plot because I don’t want to give anything away. You have to see it for yourself to believe it. You’ll never forget it, and you’ll never be sad about it.
Plot: Takeshi Kitano wrote, edited, and directed the 1996 Japanese film Kids Return. Kitano was paralyzed on one side of his body in a motorcycle accident, and the film was filmed shortly after he recovered. He swiftly went about developing Kids Return after enduring significant surgery and physical therapy, despite reports that he might never be able to work again.
Masaru (Ken Kaneko) and Shinji (Masanobu And) are two high school graduates who seek purpose and meaning in their lives by becoming yakuza lieutenants, one as a boxer and the other as a yakuza lieutenant, respectively. Joe Hisaishi composed the soundtrack, while Katsumi Yanagishima was the cinematographer.
4- The Departed (2006)
Release date: October 6, 2006 (USA)
Director: Martin Scorsese
Box office: 291.5 million USD
Adapted from: Infernal Affairs
Distributed by: Warner Bros. Pictures
Awards: Academy Award for Best Picture
Why: It is not a film; it is a superb, fantastic, mind-blowing, and mind-blending masterpiece. This is the first time in my life that I have seen a film of this caliber. It’s simply incredible! We do know something about Nolan’s ability, direction, complexity, and thoughts. He did a fantastic job directing these new gangster movies.
The new gangster movies concept is that it hires the thoughts in dreams and creates the ideas in dreams. Psychologically, people do not remember their dreams for long periods, however, in this film, there are four levels to a dream.
Leonardo is one of my favorite actors. He did a good job in this film, and I’m not going to say much more about it because it will give too much away about the plot. So I advise you to go see this masterpiece and enjoy it.
Plot: The South Boston state police unit is waging war on Irish-American organized crime in this crime-fighting masterclass. Billy Costigan, a young undercover detective, is ordered to infiltrate the criminal organization led by gangland boss Frank Costello. While Billy swiftly gains Costello’s trust, at the Special Investigation Unit, Colin Sullivan, a tough young criminal who has joined the state police as an informer for the syndicate, is rising to a position of prominence.
Each individual is absorbed by his double life, acquiring intelligence about the operations they have infiltrated’s plans and counter-plans. However, as it becomes evident to both the mob and the police that there is a mole among them, Billy and Colin find themselves in jeopardy of being discovered and exposed to the enemy – and each must race to discover the identity of the other guy in time to rescue themselves. Is either of them willing to turn on the friends and comrades they’ve made throughout their long undercover stints?
3- Gomorrah (2008)
Release date: May 16, 2008 (Italy)
Director: Matteo Garrone
Adapted from: Gomorrah
Distributed by: RAI
Screenplay: Matteo Garrone, Roberto Saviano, Gianni Di Gregorio, Massimo Gaudioso, Maurizio Braucci, Ugo Chiti
Why: Director Matteo Garrone has made a fantastic film. It’s a living example of the neorealist new mafia movies today. The film, which is based on Roberto Saviano’s popular novel of the same name, delves into the world of the Camorra, one of the most horrific criminal organizations in the world. The film immerses you in this inferno for more than two hours, allowing you to smell the blood, feel the misery of Naples’ slums, and experience the vicious circle of violence, despair, and injustice through simple realist cinematography, editing, and aesthetics, as well as the casting of actors who are mostly residents. It’s a work of art that you simply must see!
Plot: Gomorrah (Italian: Gomorra) is a 2008 Italian crime film directed by Matteo Garrone. It is based on Roberto Saviano’s non-fiction book of the same name, with whom he also cooperated on the screenplay. It is about the Casalesi clan, a crime gang inside the Camorra, a classic criminal organization located in Naples and Caserta in Campania, southern Italy.
On May 16, 2008, the film premiered in Italy, and on September 11, 2008, it premiered in North America at the Toronto International Film Festival, followed by a 13 February 2009 release in New York City and Los Angeles. It gained critical praise, earning the Grand Prix and seven David of Donatello Awards, including Best Film and Best Director, at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival (for Garrone). It also took home five honors at the European Film Awards in 2008.
2- The Public Enemy (1931)
Release date: April 23, 1931 (USA)
Director: William A. Wellman
Box office: $557,000
Budget: $151,000 or $230,000
Based on: Beer and Blood; by John Bright; Kubec Glassman
Distributed by: Warner Bros. Pictures
Why: This is James Cagney’s fifth new gangster movies, The Public Enemy, as it still shocks today with its incredible violence and story of two best buddies who get into crime together. They mix in with some of the shadiest characters ever seen on screen, like Putty Nose and Paddy, both of who keep coming out with great line after great line, total 1930s style.
Of course, this has the grapefruit scene, but there are many great scenes, like when Cagney tells a bartender “eh, you’re Yella” and slaps him. If one hasn’t seen The Public Enemy, one really must!
Plot: Tom Powers and Matt Doyle are close friends and fellow gangsters, with Tom’s straitlaced brother, Mike, and Matt’s straitlaced sister, Molly, disapproving of their lifestyles. From their teen years into young adulthood, Tom and Matt had an increasingly lucrative life bootlegging during the Prohibition era. But Tom, in particular, becomes more daring in his actions and obstinate and harsh in his treatment of those who disagree with him or cross him.
After one of Tom and Matt’s comrades dies in a strange accident, a rival bootlegging party led by Paddy Ryan identifies a hole within their gang. As a result of the gang fight, Paddy encourages Tom and Matt to go underground. Due to his personality, Tom, on the other hand, prefers to take matters into his own hands.
1- The Godfather (1972)
Release date: March 24, 1972 (USA)
Director: Francis Ford Coppola
Story by: Mario Puzo
Featured song: Speak Softly Love
Screenplay: Francis Ford Coppola, Mario Puzo, Robert Towne
Awards: Academy Award for Best Picture
Why: A film that, without a doubt, does not require a review. The entire cast gives a commanding performance, all dialogues are already written in silver line, epic sequences, and superb acting by Marlon and Al Pacino.
I’d like to quote a moment in which Al Pacino visits two men in a hotel and decides to kill them both; that scene is majestic, it produces shivers, it’s scary and exhilarating, and it shows what an actor this man is. Greatest.
Plus, there’s the director, who is a psychopath!!! What a direction, everything is amazing, the class about these new mafia movies, you can’t complain about anything, watch it and learn about leadership, family, relationships, decision-making, and so on.
Plot: The Godfather “Don” Vito Corleone leads the Corleone crime family in New York. He’s at the wedding celebration of his daughter. Michael, Vito’s youngest son and a decorated WWII Marine is also attending the wedding. Michael does not appear to want to work in the family business.
Vito is a powerful individual who is gracious to those who value him but harsh to those who do not. Vito, on the other hand, refuses to sell drugs to a powerful and ruthless rival who requires Don’s help. Following that is a conflict between Vito’s fading old values and new ways, which could push Michael to do something he’s always avoided: wage a mafia war against all other mafia families, potentially splitting the Corleone family apart.
