|List of Best Mob (Mafia) Movies of all Time|
A Bronx Tale (1993) - DeNiro's directorial debut. And a fine debut it is. And he stars in the film too.
The Untouchables (1987) - Elliot Ness cleans up the Chicago underworld. Directed by Brian de Palma, written by David Mamet, starring Kevin Costner. How's that for firepower?
The Dark Knight (2008) - Heath Ledger's performance aside, it's just a great movie. Not really as much a superhero tale as it is a brilliant crime drama that happens to feature a superhero.
Carlito's Way (1993) - De Palma and Pacino sure know their way around a gangster flick!
Pulp Fiction (1994) - Tarantino's sophomore effort. No sophomore slump here! Style and verve that have been copied ever since.
Heat (1995) - The first time De Niro and Pacino acted together. Chemistry, chemistry, chemistry.
Jackie Brown (1997) - Another Tarantino classic. Hip, stylish and pure Tarantino!
Boondock Saints (1999) - Little known, but a huge cult classic.
Bonnie and Clyde (1967) - Not a Mafia movie, but a gangster flick nonetheless. One of the most controversial films of the 1960s. And there was a lot of controversy in the 60s! Towards the top of many "best films of all times" lists.
Miller's Crossing (1990) - Lust, vengeance, and Ireland! All the things that make a good Mob movie!
Analyze This (1998) - A change of pace for a gangster pic, but worth the look anyway. Good to see De Niro do levity.
The Sopranos (2000- 2007) - Sure, it's not a movie, but it's the best show on TV, so it deserves a mention here. Will unfortunately typecast Gandolfini to the point of unrecoverability.
Road to Perdition (2002) - A Sam Mendes masterpiece. It's a cold, brooding noir piece with violence, intrigue, style and of course the father son dynamic.
Angels With Dirty Faces (1938) - A James Cagney, Hunphrey Bogart classic. Because of the controversy over gangster films at the time, the film was banned outright in Denmark, China, Poland, Finland, and parts of Canada and Switzerland.
Animal Kingdom (2010) - A multi-layered Australian crime story that takes its sweet time roiling to a frothy, violent head. Its deliberate pacing is more potential energy than kinetic, and reminds us of a Polanski slow burn.
