A documentary on a Canadian crime gang
8 July 1999 | by (Newmarket, Ontario) – See all my reviews

I saw this documentary a few days ago and throughly enjoyed it. It stars Gordon Pinsent as the narrator and as Edwin Boyd. It is the story of a Canadian mob from its small beginnings to the eventual death of some of its main members in the Don jail, and ends with a follow up on many of the surviving characters. The story is true, but it couldn't be more perfect for a drama. The twisting plot and characters are carefully followed (many times with Pinsent as the narrator saying "Remember that name"). I would recommend this to anyone who would like to know more about the modern history of Toronto (and other parts of Canada) or anyone who likes mob stories - this is a great one.
