1.What is your favorite gangster film?
Mean Streets hands down; but I also loved The Godfather, (parts I and II); Scarface; Casino; The Untouchables; and Goodfellas.

2. Who is your favorite gangster actor?
Who else but DeNiro and Pacino?

3. Who is your favorite gangster film character, and in what film does he or she appear?

Well, #1 is Johnny Boy (Mean Streets), and then comes Tony Montana (Scarface). Though, Jimmy Burke (Goodfellas) and Charlie (Mean Streets) are up there too.

4. Who is your favorite director in the gangster genre?

Martin Scorsese.

5. What is your favorite quote or piece of dialog?

Johnny Boy: Y'know Joey Clams...
Charlie: Yeah.
Johnny Boy: ...Joey Scallops, yeah.
Charlie: I know him too, yeah.
Johnny Boy: ...yeah. No. No, Joey Scallops is Joey Clams.
Charlie: Right.
Johnny Boy: Right.
Charlie: ...they're the same person!
Johnny Boy: Yeah!
Charlie: 'ey!
Johnny Boy: 'ey...

6. What is your favorite scene? That very last scene in Scarface when Tony got shot and fell into the fountain; it was incredibly awesome when the camera paned upwards to reveal that globe decoration carved into the fountain. “The World Is Yours.”

Alvin Karpis [27 Sep 2007|11:20am]

[ mood | curious ]

In recent times I have read about Alvin Karpis ("Ray" to his mates, "Creepy" to the fuzz), who was the real brains behind the Barker-Karpis Gang in the 1930s, bank robber, kidnapper, cop killer, last surviving Public Enemy Number One and Alcatraz's longest-serving inmate. I understand there have been several films made about his contemporaries such as Bonnie and Clyde, Pretty Boy Floyd, John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson, but are there any about Alvin Karpis? It would be both an irony and a shame if there are none, considering his story is probably the most interesting. Or does his long life and survival skills fly in the face of the conventions of the gangster film?

4. Who is your favorite director in the gangster genre?

Either Guy Ritchie or Brian de Palma


5. What is your favorite quote or piece of dialog?

"Do any of you know what "nemesis" means? "A righteous infliction of retribution manifested by an appropriate agent", in this case personified by an 'orrible cunt: me."
- Brick Top, Snatch

A close second is this one from Pulp Fiction:
Butch: "You okay?"
Marcellus: "No! I'm very f--kin' far from okay!"
Butch: "So what now?"
Marcellus: "What now? Let me tell you what now: I'm gonna get a coupla hard pipe-hittin' niggers to go to work on those here with a pair o' pliers and a blowtorch. (To Zed) You hear me talkin' hillbilly boy?! I'm gonna get medieval on your arse!"
Butch: "I mean what now between me and you?"
Marcellus: "Oh, that "what now". Let me tell you what now between me and you: there is no me and you."
Butch: "So we're cool?"
Marcellus: "Yeah, we're cool. Two things: (1) What happened here is between you and me and Mr. Soon-To-Be-Livin'-The-Rest-Of-His-Short-Arsed-Life-In-Agonisin'-Pain Rapist here - it ain't nobody else's business; (2) Leave L.A. tonight, and when you're gone, you stay gone, else you'll be gone. You lost all your L.A. priveliges. Deal?"

and like a good Aussie I include this one from Two Hands:
Pando: "Acko, we're takin' your car."
Acko: "But I just got the gearbox fixed."
Pando: "Good - that means it f--kin' works!"


6. What is your favorite scene?

Butch and Marcellus dispatching the two sickos in Pulp Fiction;

8. Which ganster film character do you most straight-out hate or loathe?

Zed and his mate the pawn shop owner in Pulp Fiction, followed closely by Conor Rooney in Road To Perdition.

glad to be a part of this.
