Los Angeles, CA – August 16, 2017 – For the last century, the portrayal of the Mafia in film has provided us with some of the most intriguing, corruption stories. Mafia films have kept viewers creeping to the edge of their seats, awaiting the next victim, who will turn on who next, the dramatic pauses, the sociopathic behavior, and of course the unspeakable violence.
We have compiled a list of the best criminals, gangsters, bank robbers who utilize violence, steal and murder, becoming members of the “mafia” film genre.
