The Departed (Dir. Martin Scorsese) (2006): A big-budget Hollywood star power remake of the Hong Kong classic crime thriller Infernal Affairs.

Two men operate on different sides of the law; one a mole with the Boston State Police department, the other within the Irish mafia. When bloodshed breaks out on the streets, each mole is despatched to discover the other's identity in a race against time...

Donnie Brasco (Dir. Mike Newell) (1997): The true story of an FBI undercover agent (Johnny Depp) who becomes Donnie Brasco, 'The Jewel Man', to infiltrate one of the mob families.

Donnie manoeuvres his way into the confidence of ageing hit man, Lefty Ruggiero (Al Pacino) who trusts Donnie and vouches for him to the mob. But Lefty and Donnie become friends when they should be enemies.

As Donnie moves deeper and deeper into the Mafia chain of command, he realises he is not only crossing the line between federal agent and criminal but it also leading his friend Lefty to an almost certain death sentence...

Gangs Of New York (Dir. Martin Scorsese) (2002): The seeds for revenge take place in 1846, when a battle is fought against the Irish and the "native" Americans over the five points area of New York City.

The plot unfolds when in 1863, Amsterdam returns to the five points to seek revenge against his fathers killer.
