The Roaring Twenties (1939)

Raoul Walsh directed this film about the lives of World War I veterans after they return to the States to locate a new existence for themselves.

The Godfather (1972)

Francis Ford Coppola's first instalment in a trilogy remains the gold standard of Hollywood gangster movies, for its performances, artistic merit, and narrative depth.

Scarface (1983)

Al Pacino went from muted Michael Corleone to bombastic Tony Montana in this Brian DePalma-helmed remake of the 1933 film, which was loud and dripping with style as only a DePalma film does.

Once Upon a Time in America (1984)

Sergio Leone directed Robert De Niro in this sprawling drama about a gangster's life in 20th century America.

Miller's Crossing (1990)

The Coen brothers directed this film about a loyal gangster trying to keep the peace between two crews at loggerheads with one another.

Casino (1995)

Martin Scorsese moved his attention from the East Coast to the desert of Las Vegas, directing Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, and Sharon Stone in this brutal saga of depraved men and women who have no sense of right and wrong.

Road to Perdition (2002)

Sam Mendes crafted two father-son stories in one with this stylistic, moody film set against the Prohibition with a star cast most directors would kill for: Tom Hanks, Jude Law, Stanley Tucci, Daniel Craig, and towering above all of them, Paul Newman.
