What would you put in this DVD/BluRay boxset?

I'm just watching Carlitos Way on ITV4. What a film!!

I got thinking....

What 6 gangster films would you put in the "Greatest Ever Gangster Films" boxset

Mine (in no particular order) would be: -
Carlitos Way
Get Carter (Michael Caine, obviously)
Leon
Goodfellas
Reservoir Dogs
Once Upon A Time In America

I've missed Godfather off on purpose, 'cos they are really a trilogy in their own right. And besides Godfather 3 wouldn't come close.

Not seen "Notourious". Must look out for it.

Pulp Fiction is sheer quality, but Res Dogs just pips it for me. And I aint gonna argue with the rest either.

It's hard innit. You think of 6....then think of another 6.

I forgot about The Krays. What a decent film that was. I love Steven Berkoffs pantomime villain.
