Gangster movies that don’t feature the Italian Mafia

The gangster movie is an institution. There is something kind of sexy about the very idea of an organized crime ring. People love that shit.

But ever since The Godfather, the Italians have had a pretty tight grip on the reigns of the gangster film.

This week we decided to delve a little deeper into this world of organized crime by completely ignoring the Italian side, and looking at the other people who have had such organizations.

Basically, what happened was, Bob Hoskins died and we wanted to talk about one of his films...

This gave us all the excuse we needed.
