'Carlito's Way' (1993), Carlito (Pacino) is a Hispanic drugs boss just released from prison. Determined to go straight and move to the Bahamas with his girlfriend, Gail (Penelope Ann Miller), Carlito is tempted back to the wrong side of the law by his lawyer, nerdish coke-head David Kleinfeld (Sean Penn), for 'one last job'. Brian de Palma directs this visually eloquent film about a man's inevitable tragic demise with his familiar penchant for the big set piece and violent action.
'Casino' (1995), Sam 'Ace' Rothstein (De Niro) is the mob's frontman for a billion dollar Las Vegas casino. The story begins in 1973; Ace falls for hooker Ginger McKenna (Sharon Stone), while boyhood companion Nicky Santoro (Joe Pesci) is appointed as his muscle at the club. Over the years various jealousies surface and erupt in a series of violent betrayals and, ultimately, the destruction of Rothstein's empire.
'American Gangster' (2007), when his boss dies, underworld driver Frank Lucas (Denzel Washington) seizes his chance and begins to build his own criminal empire. Utilising the bodies of dead US soldiers, Lucas begins importing heroin direct from South-East Asia, increasing purity on the street, and undercutting his rivals in one swoop. Before long he's amassed a fortune, bringing him to the attention of maverick policeman Ritchie Roberts (Russell Crowe), an honest cop in an otherwise corrupt force, who makes it his business to shut Lucas down.
'Public Enemies' (2009), set in 1930s gangland America, Johnny Depp stars as
the charismatic bank robber John Dillinger. Dillinger's audacious raids and
subsequent jailbreaks thrilled the American public as their sympathy for the
banks that had plunged the country into Depression reached an all-time low.
Despite his status as a folk hero, Dillinger was declared 'Public Enemy Number
One' by J. Edgar Hoover (Billy Crudup) and became the prime target of Hoover's
fledgling FBI, headed by Melvin Purvis (Christian Bale). Marion Cotillard
co-stars as gangster's moll Billie Frechette.
