    They are my favourite types of films, also like the UK gangster type films like Snatch, Lock, Stoc,...

    But american mafia, I think its the Untouchables

    i can't choose one favorite, i love almost all of 'em, there are no people on Earth who doesn't like these classics, so i'd say The Sopranos :)

    btw i've recently discovered two Russian movies about the Russian mafia: Brat 1-2 (Brother), i've heard these movies are well known, popular movies there, i'm planning to watch them soon

    I'm going to have to agree on Goodfellas, and add Once Upon A Time In America. It isn't about the mafia, but a story on a group of gangsters from New York.

    i too will agree Goodfellas is the best...then the Godfather...before i wouldve said Casino but its not as realistic as Goodfellas...bringing up the rear is Donnie Brasco and Gotti...but none of these movies are slouches

    I always considered Casino, kind of like Goodfellas 2. Scorsese just bounced Casino off of Goodfellas popularity. Still a good movie though. Both.

    I like Scarface, Goodfellas, Donnie Brasco they all good and City of Gods that was a classic too. To many to list UK movies like Snatch, the Austrilian one Chopper.

    One often overlooked movie was called "Once Upon A Time In America"
    with Robert De Niro and James Woods. What I liked about it was how it
    took you from the time the gangsters were street kids and it progresses
    though their lives. Great storyline and Great flick!

    Nothing beats godfather as the granddad's of mafia movies. Another fav of mine is ScarFace starring Al Pacino. If you've played Gran Theft Auto 4, it bases alot of scenes, backgrounds etc from ScarFace...

    godfather is good but has a serious lack of humour.

    Goodfellas and Casino are unmatchable.

    Goodfellas would have to be my favourite though.

    Scenes like this one where DeNiro's character Jimmy Conway is contemplating killing Morrie only because Morrie keeps wanting a piece of the big heist they pulled off. Fucking priceless.
