This community celebrates the gangster film in all its various forms...from the 1903 short The Great Train Robbery to the latest hip Tarantino-inspired flick...from the actors who have defined the gangster, such as Cagney, Bogart, Robinson, Brando, Pacino, and DeNiro...to the directors who have helped shape the genre, including Walsh, Scorsese, De Palma, Coppola, and Tarantino.

While this community is primarily interested in the gangster/mobster/crime film, we welcome posts on related genres, such as detective and film noir, as well as sub-genres such as prison, heist, and chase films.
