So with all the GTA hulabaloo and my lack of console, I thought I’d do the next best thing, I’d troll for some gangster, crime, noir flick recommendations. Going over the major ones (Godfather, Goodfellas, Scarface, etc) is fine, but I’m also looking for smaller lesser known and/or foreign films. Action, drama, thriller, comedy, whatever tone is fine, as long as it’s interesting.
Seriously? I don’t know, from what I remember of it, it seemed really forced. I liked Oscar better as a comedy, but I’m probably just weird. Thanks for the suggestion though. I’ll rewatch it and see if my opinion has changed. :)
You should also look into the anime GunGrave. It’s dark, gritty, Mafia stuff with a nice injection of weird sci-fi.
Don’t miss Carlito’s Way. It’s got Al Pacino in it as a mobster who wants out of the game.
Last Man Standing has Bruce Willis as a gunslinger for hire in a war between the Irish mob and the Italian mafia in a Prohibition era town. It’s an awesome 30s Prohibition-era period remake of Yojimbo, like Fistful of Dollars was a remake of Yojimbo set in the Wild West.
