"Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch" are in my top ten list of non-Italian/Irish/Jewish gangster movies. As you likely know, real gangsters appear in those films. They give them more authenticity. Ritchie's mob flicks have a certain cool vibe that jibes with me.
Give Gangster No 1 a try detective,it stars malcolm mcdowell (pretty good actor) just imagine a english version of scarface/american psycho.I bought it with much lower expectations,bought it for 3$,turned out to be pretty damned good Well worth 3$ haha
