One of my friends recently had ACL surgery which laid her up for a couple days and asked for some movie recommendations. She loves gritty, gangster films; favorite movie is actually Goodfellas which floored me coming from a chick.

Anyway, threw these at her and figured I copy/paste what I wrote for discussion or add to the queue for anyone else who likes this gene.

Cheers!

The Way of the Gun – personal favorite you probably never heard of, subtly complicated plot (9/10)
Running Scared – pretty mainstream, probably heard of (8/10)
Lucky Number Slevin – see above (8/10)
Layer Cake – my absolute favorite out of the group (10/10)
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang – mainstream, lots of comedy moments (8/10)
Smokin' Aces – everyone I talked to either loved or hated, I loved it (8/10)
