Criminals | Gangsters

Criminal characters, or often gangsters, are typified by a lot of tough-talking men in suits, gang warfare, and horrific violence. The Mafia, which is the name given to an American- Italian criminal organisation, became the impetus of a subgenre of gangster films. Francis Ford Coppola’s film trilogy The Godfather, is often considered the finest series in the subgenre of mafia movies. These films follow a mafia family living in New York, and the ways in which they navigate power, familial ties, and money. The Godfather is a great trilogy. It shows the complexity of human life and makes you feel empathy with some really horrible people. But it also shows the raw brutality of organised crime. There is a famous scene in The Godfather where a character finds a dead horse head in his bed, which really isn’t very nice.

What is the difference between a mobster and a gangster?
