The top 10 gangster movies and TV shows

Gangster/mafia movies and TV shows have been captivating audiences since The Musketeers of Pig Alley – arguably the first film about organised crime – was released in 1912. So, to celebrate that the ultimate organised crime TV series, The Sopranos, is on 7mate, we’ve put together a list of the Top 10 best gangster movies and TV shows of all time.

Now, bear in mind that this particular genre has tons and tons of great films, so, in order to have only ten, we had to leave out some classics. No worries, though, we’re counting on you to name them in the comments section!
