  1. there’s great YouTube video on this film called “The Death of the American Gangster Film.” Made me view it in a different light.

    1. Thanks so much for the recommendation, Eddie! That’s a VERY good documentary short. Funny how closely that short follows my narrative in our podcast and my overall view of gangster films. Must be my subconscious dislike for those kinds of films. 🙂
