From The Godfather to Get Carter, big screen tales of organized crime have produced many of cinema's greatest films and most memorable moments. The Rough Guide to Gangster Movies gives you the lowdown on all aspects of the genre - from the 'Chicago' of James Cagney and the Los Angeles of Michael Mann to the cinema underworlds of London, Paris and Hong Kong. This guide collects the guns, the cars, the molls and the classic plots, with directors and actors such as Edward G Robinson, Al Pacino, Chow Yun Fat, Robert DeNiro and Ray Winstone. The Rough Guide to Gangster Movies is an offer you can't refuse.
