GoodFellas (1990)
A seriously amazing motion picture. Timeless, and really it defined the genre as we see it today.

The Departed (2006)
In reality, it's a tie between this and 'GoodFellas'. The BETTER film is 'GoodFellas', but I usually tell people my favorite is this one.

Eerie, beautifully shot and perfectly paced, 'No Country For Old Men' is an undeniably excellent piece of work, not to ever be forgotten. Not to mention Anton Chigurh, one of the greatest, most intimidating screen presences ever to come into fruition.

The Godfather (1972)
Arguably the best film of all-time, 'The Godfather' is every bit as good as its proclaimed to be, and one of the best films ever made in terms of being technically proficient. The details are masterfully depicted, and the in depth examination of this Italian crime family is as realistic as it gets.

Scarface (1983)
A great story of an underdog rising to the top, but more than that, 'Scarface' is a perfectly structured, stylish crime masterpiece, which still stands as one of the greatest of all-time.

My favorite crime/gangster/mafia themed films.

Believe it or not, there is a fine line between each of those genres/sub-genres. For instance, Die Hard contains crime. However, its a bonafide ACTION film. Everyone knows that. it simply wouldn't fit in here. You can find those types of movies in my other lists. The crime genre is a genre entirely on its own.

The 'Gangster' genre is self-explanatory, as well as 'Mafia' themed films.
