Crime movies as in like ganster type? or crime as in serial killer/muder kind too?

The only one I can think of to add to the existing ones would be Layer Cake, Road to Perdition, and Scarface... I'll more later most likely

If that type of movie is your thing, you should see these:

The Godfather 1 & 2 (but not #3) Carlito's Way True Romance Donnie Brasco Lucky # Slevin

...Some other crime type movies worth seeing:

Blow Sneakers

I would have to say that both The Godfather and Goodfellas are considered the best gangster movies ever made.

Well I agree with Goodfellas, but I never really thought that The Godfather was all that great, didn't have so much to do with the crime side of things, moreso the family business. I have to say Road to Perdition is an excellent film, the fact that it is in the 30's with the tommy guns and everything just make it that much more convincing. More gangster movies from teh 30's would be great too.

Im not certain but I'm pretty sure RTP was in the 1920s, I could be wrong but from what I know I was pretty sure that stuff all started or reached its height during the prohibition which was the 1920s.

Also - if you want more 1920s/30 ganster films there are so many older ones...you'll just have to deal with these movies being made in the 50s and 60s (like Angels with Dirty Faces)

Oh by the way my mistake...Angels with Dirty Faces was made in 1938 and supposedly it's pretty good.
