    +1 on Donnie Brasco

    Probably for future viewing now:

    Miller’s Crossing
    Blood Simple
    Mad Dog and Glory (for something more light-hearted)

    Yeah, Sondra Locke is a terrible actress. I was over in Vegas over New Years years ago and as we were driving around, a friend showed me where they were filming the new Clint Eastwood movie (The Gauntlet) and pointed out the house that they shot up. The house was still standing and was soon to be torn down.

    Alien... if you aren't burned out on it yet

    Little Big Man (Dustin Hoffman) (and read the book too!)

    if you like western type, mountain man thing... Jeremia Johnson (Robert Redford)

    The Wind and The Lion (Sean Connery, Candice Bergin)

    Shout at the Devil (Lee Marvin, Roger Moore)

    I would add "The Great Waldo Pepper" too, but it was never released on tape or CD as far as I know

    Especially if you're a Robert Duval fan.

    Open Range, another great Duval offering.

    It’s simple enough and 1 million people have said it,

    he should’ve used younger actors.

    The story and the movie were strong enough that he could’ve had unknowns in all the parts and it still would’ve been fantastic.


    If he had never made Goodfellas people would think more positively about Casino. It’s a fantastic movie.

    Two paranoid classics:

    The Conversation
    (1974) Gene Hackman, directed by Francis Ford Coppola. With a number of other familiar faces. Not exactly a mobster movie, but much the same feeling. Great film, very taut & tense. Hackman plays a surveillance expert who starts feeling a little iffy about some of the implications of his job.

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071360/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

    It was followed up in 1998 by Enemy Of The State, starring Will Smith, with Hackman playing clearly the same character from The Conversation, although he's not specifically identified as such. Smith plays a government employee who gets in trouble with the wrong people, who ends up being helped out by Hackman.
