      In honor of Capone, what are your favorite films/performances?

    • #156174

      I’m assuming you meant ‘gangster films/performances’, and not ‘portrayals of Al Capone’. Personally, Goodfellas is my favorite gangster movie. Something I thought was really interesting about Goodfellas’ production was the occasional ad-lib of dialogue. Apparently, Scorsese rewrote the script based on those ad-libs.

      Scarface is the best movie ever made, period.

      The Godfather is supreme but if you want a really good movie check out Sean Connery and Kevin Costner in the Untouchables.  Great flick.

      Either Miller’s Crossing or The Godfather, depending on how I’m feeling on a given day.

      I know Capone gets a lot of crap, but I actually liked it. Yeah, it’s a weird movie. Not your traditional “gangster” film, but that’s what I like about it.
