'Movies Like Dances with Wolves': Sweeping American Epics

These epic movies - whether they be set in the old west or contemporary gangland - cut to the heart of the American mythos, employing such archetypes as the lone gunslinger, the kingpin poised for disaster, and the wayfarer with eyes only for home.

Best Crime Movies

Say hello to my little friend - movies that keep you on the edge of your seat. These aren’t just your Italian mobsters. The Coen brothers’ “Fargo” shows that even sweet Minnesotans are capable of a fantastic heist. Or not.

'Movies Like American Gangster': Tales of American Ambition

No country glorifies ambition like America; enjoy this collection of movies that take a look at America's crowning virtue as expressed in crime, business, and creativity.

Best 80s Crime

This collection contains only the very greatest crime thriller/dramas from the 1980s, including 'The Long Good Friday' and 'Witness'. Does not include crimes against fashion!

De Niro Crime

Perhaps the greatest crime actor of all time, DeNiro has proven himself time and time again to be a convincing, versatile, and, when necessary, disturbing lead. And the fact that he has parodied his own type-cast in films like 'Analyze That' shows he has a sense of humor to boot!

Joe Pesci Crime

Most would agree Joe Pesci is a very funny actor…funny like a clown, you might even say. If you don't get the reference then make sure to check out 'Goodfellas', as well as the other mobland classics on this list of Joe Pesci's leading crime roles.

'Movies Like the Godfather': American Gangster Epics

Enjoy the epic journey as these gang-lords build up monumental criminal empires from scratch. Of course, it goes without saying they all die peacefully of old age, surrounded by loving families, and thwarted rivals chortling 'fair play!'.

'Movies Like Lawless': Prohibition Era Gangland

This collection of movies proves where there's a will, there's a way - and, in the case of prohibition, that way was provided by burly Italian-American men with an endless supply of Tommy Guns. From 1990 classic 'Miller's Crossing' to relatively recent release 'Lawless' America's dry spell continues to provide inspiration for quality crime flicks!
