The Godfather (1972) – Not only is it the best Mob movie of all time, it’s one of the best movies period.

Goodfellas (1990) – Martin Scorcese at his best. Lost the Best Picture Oscar to Dances With Wolves. A winner in any other year.

The Godfather Part II (1974) – The only sequel to win a best picture Oscar. Yes, it’s that good.

Donnie Brasco (1997) – Stars Al Pacino and Johnny Depp. Enough said!

Scarface (1983) – Brian DePalma’s best film. By the way, Al Pacino would like you to meet his friend.

A History of Violence (2005) – A graphic illustration of what might have happened had Charles Manson visited Mayberry- only darker! William Hurt is phenomenal here.

The Departed (2006) – The question of whether a definitive list of Scorsese pictures will include The Departed has been answered. It’s brilliant!

On the Waterfront (1954) – One of the best films of all time. Brando displays one of the best acting performances ever to be captured on film.

Reservoir Dogs (1992) – Quentin Tarantino’s best film? Mr. Pink thinks so.

Casino (1995) – Another Scorcese Mob film. Not as good as Goodfellas, but still pretty damn good!

A Bronx Tale (1993) – DeNiro’s directorial debut. And a fine debut it is. And he stars in the film too.

The Untouchables (1987) – Elliot Ness cleans up the Chicago underworld. Directed by Brian de Palma, written by David Mamet, starring Kevin Costner. How’s that for firepower?

The Dark Knight (2008) – Heath Ledger’s performance aside, it’s just a great movie. Not really as much a superhero tale as it is a brilliant crime drama that happens to feature a superhero.

Carlito’s Way (1993) – De Palma and Pacino sure know their way around a gangster flick!

Pulp Fiction (1994) – Tarantino’s sophomore effort. No sophomore slump here! Style and verve that have been copied ever since.

Heat (1995) – The first time De Niro and Pacino acted together. Chemistry, chemistry, chemistry.

Jackie Brown (1997) – Another Tarantino classic. Hip, stylish and pure Tarantino!

Boondock Saints (1999) – Little known, but a huge cult classic.

Bonnie and Clyde (1967) – Not a Mafia movie, but a gangster flick nonetheless. One of the most controversial films of the 1960s. And there was a lot of controversy in the 60s! Towards the top of many “best films of all times” lists.

Miller’s Crossing (1990) – Lust, vengeance, and Ireland! All the things that make a good Mob movie!

Analyze This (1998) – A change of pace for a gangster pic, but worth the look anyway. Good to see De Niro do levity.

The Sopranos (2000- 2007) – Sure, it’s not a movie, but it’s the best show on TV, so it deserves a mention here. Will unfortunately typecast Gandolfini to the point of unrecoverability.

Road to Perdition (2002) – A Sam Mendes masterpiece. It’s a cold, brooding noir piece with violence, intrigue, style and of course the father son dynamic.
