    Mine is probably the Godfather. Marlon Brando is exceptionally wonderful as that character and it's a damn fine movie.

    Close runner ups for me are:
    Casino
    Goodfellas
    The Departed

    I'm a big Scorsese fan.

    Goodfella's has got to be #1. Hell, its a true story. The only down side to the movie is that you start to like Henry Hill only to realize that you're rooting for a dirty rat. Casino is second and "The Godfather" is a close third. The departed was average at best in my opinion. Wouldn't lose any sleep if I never saw it again.

    Admittedly, I haven't seen some of the ones listed here. I DO like "Once Upon A Time In America" about the Jewish Mob. Same Director as "The Good, The Bad And The Ugly".

    The Untouchables with Kevin Costner. It's about the history of the biggest gangsters in America, the ATF.

    All kidding aside, Definitely The Godfather trilogy.

    I went to the ATF office in Pittsburgh once and they had "The Untouchables" movie poster on the wall.

    I liked Casino a lot more than Goodfellas...

    Departed was pretty epic too.

    Thats how i am. I like Goodfellas don't get me wrong but i'm a huge De Niro fan and it being centered around Ray Liotta well he just didn't meet my expectations.

    Not a mafia type of movie. A story about the different aspect of drug trafficking.
    Casting is great.

    "Casino" was amazing. It's the kind of "gangster movie" that even people who hate gangster movies will still like.
