this is gonna be a tough one

oh decisions, decisions...

1. What is your favorite gangster film? triple tie between Goodfellas, Angels With Dirty Faces, and City of God...but if i really had to choose just one, I'd go ahead, bite the bullet, and say Goodfellas
2. Who is your favorite gangster actor? Cagney
3. Who is your favorite gangster film character, and in what film does he or she appear? Nicky Santoro from Casino, Karen Hill from Goodfellas
4. Who is your favorite director in the gangster genre? Did it even need to be asked? Scorcese!
5. What is your favorite quote or piece of dialog? this is hard.... "As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster." (Goodfellas) "Dadinho é o caralho, meu nome é zé pequeno porra" (translation: "Lil Dice, my ass. My name's Lil Ze now" from City of God)
6. What is your favorite scene? the "Sunday May 11 1980" sequence from Goodfellas

glad to be a part of this. Incidentally, my film history professor was cool enough to allow me to, at request, write a 40 page conference paper on Gangster films and the affect on American society so, needless to say, this is the most exciting and fun project I've ever had or probably ever will have in school.
