I really haven't seen many crime films, but...

OUATIA
The Godfather trilogy
Scarface(Pacino)
Goodfellas
Untouchables

It's kind of an embarrassing list, but I'm a fan of the classy mafia movies in big cities and of all the crime movies I've seen, these stick out the most. By the way, does Carlito's way live up to Scarface's standards? I've been wanting to see that, and Scorsese's Mean Streets.

What other classy mafiosa movies are out there? I reall don't care for any of that "street gang" stuff. By the way, what was that movie where Andy Garcia has that "Cockeye" look?

I just saw Carlito's Way and Donnie Brasco. Brasco was good, but Carlito's Way was AMAZING! I almost enjoyed it more than Scarface. They're kind of tied.

The overall look of the film is amazing. I like how, in both Carlito and Scarface, DePalma made them so neon and shiny and metalic looking. Scarface makes use of a lot of reds and whites where Carlito's Way seems to have more blues and blacks

Carlito's Way is better than the de Palma version of Scarface, which is, in my opinion, slightly overrated.

Crime films:

Hard to add any new movies to the ones already mentioned. And hard to remember - it must be one of the widest genres.
But, in no order:

Usual Suspects
Public Enemy (yes - Cagney)
Miller's Crossing
The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3 (a little gem I think)
Dog Day Afternoon (Pacino's usual vulcano (over)acting)
LA Confidential
Blade Runner (a crime film in its own way)
Chinatown
City of God
Mystic River (yep - a crime film as well, I think)

My brain is dead, but I so agree with so many movies in the prior postings.  Want to see half of them again.

 8) hola amigos. I listed HEAT as one of my favourite crime films; just been watching the new special edition dvd and it's fantastic. Mann's commentary is an in-depth and fascinating account of the making of the movie (also check out COLLATERAL) it's only after watching the documentaries on disc two that I really began to fully appreciate the amount of research that Michael Mann and the screenwriters did - it's real cops n' robbers stuff. get your copy now!

HEAT-loved the movie except the final shootout.

One critic said this is the movie Peckinpah should have made as a followup to THE WILD BUNCH
