In this continuing series of movies on crime and criminals, we have watched and discussed mostly film noirs about femme fatales, cops, private eyes, crooks and killers, etc. During this spring session, we will look exclusively at Classic Crime Cinema of the recent past (i.e., modern-day, post-1965 productions about back-in-the-day mobsters. In contrast to vintage crime films, these films are intended for mature audiences (R-rated). Such classics as The Godfather
(I and II), The French Connection
, The Friends of Eddie Coyle
, Prizzi’s Honor
, and Road to Perdition
, among others, will be presented and discussed. Join us for another look at the world of crime, this time through the lens of contemporary movie making.
