One of the biggest stars in the movie just moved from marijuana to heroin.
I think the main reason is that most of the great stories already been told and Goodfellas set the bar on how they should be told. I also think the last opportunity to re-tell some of stories on television was wasted with Boardwalk Empire.
The old school mafia was easy to romanticize because of the personalities of some the individuals. But they were still violent. We just overlooked it because of the rules they had when it came to dishing it out.
Boardwalk Empire also helped because it was a mostly vastly different time than the 40 to 60s.
And I'd also like to say another reason we overlooked it - and not to get into other ideological subject matter - was because they were white-ish.
It's also easy to romanticize because of the structure of the organizations. They were basically underground feudal societies hiding in the shadows of then-contemporary America. The politics of it resembled a crude form of court politics. They're still around, but time and law enforcement have weathered their numbers and rank discipline, so now, even though they're still organized, they seem more like normal street gangs.
Don't let any of them hear the "-ish" part.
Also everyone wore suits and hats. They looked nice.
Are you suggesting that today's mob isn't as dapper as days past?
Track suits are so stylish.
"You see, the moors did so much fuckk'n.."
because his nickname was "The Chin" and not "The Teflon Don" because his crew didnt constantly get him hemmed up in court for being retards
Good point. Still a shame, though.
