Have a sudden fascination about gangsters, so far have watched A Bronx Tale, Boondock Saints, The Godfather, We Own the Night, Goodfellas, Eastern Promises this week.

Anyone got anymore I'm forgetting?

You've seen The Sopranos yes?

For movies: Miller's Crossing, Road to Perdition, Carlito's Way, Casino, Donnie Brasco, Once Upon A Time In America... so many good gangster movies.

Mean Streets is a great one, The Untouchables, Bugsy, Reservoir Dogs if that counts, there are so many. Probably my favorite genre.

Oh no you didn't. This is my specialty. Scroll down for my recommendations.

Did you know they're making a new version of Scarface! Most likely be based in LA! The Brian De Palma version with Al Pacino was actually a remake of the original 1932 classic with Paul Muni.

One of my favorite movie quotes is in Casino. "No one stays at the top forever."

Great pick! Carlito Brigante! Remember me..."I'm Benny Blanco from the Bronx." Sadly the sequel wasn't as good...I own it.

Going ol skool here...just going on my Sopranos binge right now. Seen it seven times. Absolute TV masterpiece.

As for films I'll give my top recommendations based on crime groups and I'll throw in some obscure ones.

Basically watch em and if you don't like em neg rep me, but if you enjoy em then rep me.

Cartels:
Cocaine Cowboys I (Documentary)
Cocaine Cowboys II (Documentary)
Everybody has seen Traffic & Blow already.

Russian:
Already mentioned above.
Driven To Kill (Yes this film stars Steven Seagal, but is actually entertaining. But more importantly there's not too many Westernized Russian based films.)
Lord Of War

UK:
Rise Of The Foot Soldier.
Essex Boys
Kidulthood (Kiddy version of the above films, but equally compelling.)
Layer Cake
The Business
Cass

Yakuza:
Brother
Black Rain

Chinese:
Young And Dangerous (Foreign)
Internal Affairs (Foreign) Departed is based on this film.

South America:
City Of God

La Cosa Nostra:
Untouchables
A History Of Violence
Analyze This (lolz...it's still mafia related)
Gotti
Suicide Kings


New York Gangs:
Juice
The Warriors
Gangs Of New York
King Of New York

Prison:
Felon
Animal Factory

Skinheads:
Romper Stomper
This Is England

Bikers:
The Last Chapter (Made for TV miniseries, but very well made.)
Sons Of Anarchy

I could go on with more recommendations, but I chose the top ones where some may not have seen before.

Enjoy!

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
