Nothing beats a well-made mob film- especially one that I haven’t seen yet. My favorite genre, this is like a new gem. Gotti (1996) is a deep cut among mob films, and a friggin’ good one too.
I’ve never heard of the actor who played John in this film, but I must say- he’s got some pretty captivating moments. His name’s Armand Asante, and apparently this is (and probably will be) his biggest role. And you also have like half the Sopranos cast in here as well, so that’s a gift to me.
I was surprised how well this film was made and why it was never released in theaters. The cinematography is pretty good, editing is good, acting is mostly good, soundtrack is accurate- it’s a very well made film. I watched it for free on YouTube. So, I highly recommend you watch this film ASAP.
