Best of the Al Capone documentaries.
29 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary is miles taller than anything else I've seen about Al Capone. It's emphasis is not so much on all of the violence and intimidation that Capone used, as we all know all about that already, but more on the actual events that brought Capone to a life of crime and afterward. It also gives us many interesting little-known facts about his family, others for whom he had affection, his mistakes that led him to prison, not that the feds had an unbeatable case, and the whole period of prohibition in general.

For example, did you know that his eldest brother had a career in legitimate law enforcement for many years? There's many other often unnoticed items about Capone that are presented here. Why he was a loner in prison even with many admirers. Why he was released early, and no, he did not die in prison nor alone nor miserable. Why so many actually liked him, or saw him as a hero of a sort. This is superb work and done with consideration and thoroughness.
