With that, prolific Vimeo user Jorge Luengo Ruiz has crafted yet another supercut, this time paying tribute to over 80 years of gangsters in movies. From Brian De Palma’s Scarface to Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas to newer films like Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive and Ridley Scott’s American Gangster – they’re all covered.
