American Gangster (2007)
Director Ridley Scott teams with two Academy Award Winners to tell the true juggernaut power struggle between Harlem drug kingpin Frank Lucas (Denzel Washington) who smuggles heroin into the country by hiding it in the bodies of U.S. soldiers killed during battle inVietnam and, street-savvy outcast cop Ritchie Roberts(Russell Crowe).
As a confrontation between the two men becomes inevitable and the fate of each becomes inexorably tied to the other, it gradually becomes apparent that only one of them will emerge from the conflict victorious.
One of the greatest gangster films, ever! Telling you to 'go see it'...is just plain unneccessary.
The Godfather (1972)
The Godfather was initially ranked as the third greatest film in American cinematic history but it has now been re-ranked number two under Citizen Kane, with number three being Casablanca.
Forget the plot synopsis, just look at the cast! Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, and Talia Shire. Directed by Francis Ford Coppola.
