    Goodfellas was great too. But I enjoyed Godfather and Scarface because of it's great storytelling, sure it had quite a bit of action(in Scarface) but all of it was pretty story driven, as Rogan and Supermonkey have said so eloquently.

    Look at Seven Samurai, not the best in terms of effects, but the acting is indeed top notch, and you have to be in that mindset to really grasp it.

    A modern movie that one can say the same about could be Hannibal to an extent, it wasn't all about the gore, but it was basically a game of cat and mouse between two characters, a game that was pretty gorey admittedly, but most of it was still speech driven.

    City of God remains the best 'gangster' film I have ever seen. Seriously check it out if you haven't seen it already.
