Scarface? Sea of Love? Carlito's Way?

He's pretty good in Donnie Brasco and Carlito's Way (though that movie doesn't work without Sean Penn). But he really does play the same damn guy almost every time.

You look at the Patricia family of New England, Santo Trafficante of Florida, Carlos Marcello of New Orleans, Buffalino of New York State and rural Pennsylvania and other midest areas. They guys had a lot of power because they were the only one family and had huge regions.

Angelo Bruno was another old school, quiet businessman that kept a very low profile. He had tons of politicians and contacts everywhere and was very respected from both sides.

Vito Genovese was definitely more thuggish than a businessman.

Albert Anastasia was one of many who died during the 50's when the mob families were fighting for control and dominance.

They got real quiet in the 60s and 70s and made billions once the violence slowed down

Well aware :-)

Thanks for the suggestion

I love listening to the Hollywood Godfather podcasts with Gianni Russo, aka Carlo Rizzi from Godfather I

Props to those of you who made it through this in one or two tries,I think I hit pause 5 or 6 times and eventually made it with absolutely no desire to ever watch it again.

So I'm through it.

Meh.

It's not a bad movie, but I don't understand the hype.

I enjoyed it; but not really enough to watch it again.
certain movies I can watch over and over no matter where I catch them on TV; Shawshank, Goodfellas, The God Father, Casino etc.....this movie isn't like that for me.

Yeah, I am halfway through, but haven't had the desire to fire it up because I sure don't want to be depressed.... Dying alone and all that!

I thought he over acted his way through the Devilís Advocate, or at least the entire second half. He could be subtle early, but not post 1980 or so.

Carlitos Way, Donnie Brasco, Insomnia

Three really great, low key performances

And even though he goes over the top in Heat a few times, he also has some really great low key scenes as well.

Glengarry Glen Ross gets you a lot of leeway.
