John Gotti, the head of a small New York mafia crew breaks a few of the old family rules. He rises to become the head of the Gambino family and the most well-known mafia boss in America. He is known as the Dapper Don for his expensive taste in suits, and the Teflon Don because none of the FBI charges against him will stick. Life is good, but suspicion creeps in, and greed, rule-breaking and his high public profile all threaten to topple him. Written by

This movie features two actors with real life associations to real New York mobsters: Marc Lawrence, who portrays Carlo Gambino, was friends with Charles "Lucky" Luciano. He would visit him in Italy where Lucky was deported to after his release from prison. And Anthony Quinn, who portrays Neil Dellacroce, was friends with Frank Costello (Lucky's former under boss) after Costello had retired from the mob. See more »

Lady News Reporter:
Do you always hand out $50's to street people
Is that a $50? Here take a $100... gimme back the $50. It's rough on the streets, everyone has to score once in a while
Lady News Reporter:
I guess that's why your neighborhood loves you so much?
Could be... yeah

Gotti is exceptional piece of film brought to the small screen,the cast is outstanding and nail biting stuff from the start to the very end. armand assante`s performance is so chilling as the dapper don,and it brings so much intensity leaving the audience compelled by this larger than life charismatic figure of the underworld.The dialogue is snappy and the onscreen chemistry between Assante`s portrayal of Gotti and Quinns as Neil dellacross is more than convincing.This film works well because it doesn't rely to much on violence as its predessors did in Goodfellas and others like casino.
