best movie ever
16 November 2009 | by drakek984See all my reviews

Chris,

Little known fact, I suppose, but I want to let you know that this movie was made by a now ex-mob boss (Michael Franzese) who was dubbed by Tom Brokaw as "The Prince of the Mafia," and made more money than anyone since Al Capone. In the manner of sucking up, I'm going to say that I love this movie. Though it was made in the 1980's, it is still a beautiful representation of everything that the culture back then stood for.

Thanks.

Katy
