    Scarface-as overrated as the Titans this preseason. Carlito's Way was better than that.

    To truly understand the genre you have to watch the 3 seminal gangster films. Scarface, Public Enemy and Little Caesar. Few modern actors are even in the same league as Eddie G, James Cagney and Paul Muni. There was a popular character actor who did a bunch of these films in the 30s by the name of humphrey something.

    I understand why Once upon a time in America gets dissed because of how it has been presented over the years cut up and rearranged. But honestly how can ANY list not include The Godfather? Maybe the best film ever made!

    Sergio Leone's Once Upon a time in America is so rich in texture and storytelling you could easily teach a whole film class on it. A 4 hour plus film that Leone cut to 3 1/2 hours for theaters was first presented to American audiences as a 280 minute film in which all the flashbacks were rearranged so the film was continuous. WTF? It was so cut up nobody could truly appreciate it. The real film as it is supposed to be is complicated and hard to follow at one viewing but when you take the time to understand the film it is mind blowing. Please give it a chance it is truly one of the finest films ever made.
