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


    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.


        Hard to choose a favorite, but you definitely need to watch:

        – The Godfather
        – Goodfellas
        – Casino
        – The Untouchables
        – Once upon a time in America
        – Dannie Brasco
        – Scarface
        – Carlito’s Way
        – Heat
        – A Bronx Tale
        – The Departed
        – The Irishman
        – The Professional
        – No Country for Old Men
        – A History of Violence
        – Pulp Fiction
        – Reservoir Dogs
        – In Bruges
        – Snatch
        – The Gentlemen
        – Revolver (director’s cut)
        – Lock, Stock and two Smoking Barrels

        In no particular order, and probably forgot a few, hahaha.

        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.
