20 Great Gangster Movies

I agree with #1 (think about it for a moment, most likely you'll figure it out), and I was definitely impressed that Rififi was included (it has the greatest robbery scene ever recorded -- 15 minutes of pure silence that is absolutely white-knuckle, hold your breath intense).  Overall, it's a great list with brief text for each entry accompanied by a video clip.  Here's a memorable line from #5:
Memorable Line: Jimmie: I don’t need you to tell me how fucking good my coffee is, okay? I’m the one who buys it. I know how good it is. When Bonnie goes shopping she buys SHIT. Me, I buy the gourmet expensive stuff because when I drink it I want to taste it. But you know what’s on my mind right now? It AIN’T the coffee in my kitchen, it’s the dead nigger in my garage.
