101 Gangster Movies You Must See Before You Die

I recently was gifted a book titled: ‘101 Gangster Movies You Must See Before You Die’. Over the next year or more, I will be working my way through the entire book, watching 101 gangster movies simply because I clearly have nothing better to do. I will do a series where, on here, I will give a quick 5-minute summary of my thoughts (not a full review) and telling you how I felt about that movie. The book starts in the early age of cinema in the 1910’s and goes through each decade so this is gonna be fun…

1. The Musketeers of Pig Alley ~ 1912 (US) 


This 16-minute short silent film was directed by master pioneer: D.W. Griffith. There isn’t much to say regarding quality because this is the 1910’s… but even if it’s not particularly enjoyable, which it wasn’t, and even if I lost interest, which I did, you can’t help but respect and admire the importance of the ‘the screens first gangster film’. It definitely plays a special part in the history of film.
