Movies On The Radio: Mafia, Mob, And Gangster Movies

Creative Commons

We’re going to make you an offer you can’t refuse. The State of Things wants to know about your favorite gangster, mafia, and mob movies for the next edition of Movies On The Radio. Maybe the New York crime families in “The Godfather” or “Goodfellas” top your list. Or you might be more interested in the thieves and con artists in “Reservoir Dogs” or “American Hustle.”

We’ll discuss your top picks with film critics Marsha Gordon and Laura Boyes. For a chance to be included on the next edition of Movies On The Radio, e-mail your suggestion to or tweet at us @state_of_things with #sotmovie.
