Well, it worked. Good plan, well, not for Cali.
So a cartel wacked him?
Zemo did this in Captain America: Civil War
I'm sure this has nothing to do with Gotti's brother just getting out of prison
That's just one possibility that's been floated. The Gotti speculation sounds ridiculous, Gene was in prison like 30 years and the Gottis were the worst thing to happen to the Gambinos.
I feel like A Bronx Tale is under appreciated.
I wasn’t until you brought it up!
Rankings mob movies is lame as shit when you’ve got an actual slaying of the fucking head of one of the five families
My Blue Heaven is the greatest mob movie of all time
Take it to the Marvel thread you friggin nerd
No love for Donnie brosco in here?
Not surprised the copper loves the narc movie
Joe Pistone is lame
Wouldn’t I love goodfellas more?
I’m glad to see you thawed out Frankie
Jimmy 2 times helped me out
It’s gonna be wild if this was an unsanctioned hit
Best mob book to read? Want to go down this rabbit hole now
Going to be a lot of bodies piling up
Cali was low key and was the liaison for the Sicilians, doubt this was OK’d by the other families
My guess is something went down with the Sicilians. Very calculated and effective hit
If I’m a mobster, I’ll tell you what I’m not doing: on-street parking
fuckin wise guy ova here
I enjoyed Road to Perdition, not Godfather or Goodfellas tier, but enjoyable.
The sunglasses are so incredibly stupid. The fact that he claims there was a $500,000 contract on him is just hilarious.
Who has the balls to take out a head guy other than the fucking Gotti's?
The gummah? Did she speak Ukranian?
If Mexicans had anything to do with this they are going to have quite a bit of their own bodies lined up
A Mob vs. the Cartels war should be entertaining (and have a helluva body count)
It seems like the perception of their lives as being this big glamorous thing is pretty far off. At least from the Donnie Brasco book. The gangsters in that book are basically just low level scammers and hustlers
It definitely doesn't get the love it deserves. Unfortunately for movies like that, Mafia movies have such overshadowing heavy hitters that other movies get lost in their wake. The scene with the bikers in the bar is top tier.
"Now yous can't leave"
Well it's different for the boss vs soldiers/associates but that's a pretty accurate description. These guys aren't exactly pulling in millions a year.
Wasn’t it chazz palminteri who wrote that and based it on his life growing up as C?
His real first name is Calogero
yeah it was originally a play that Palminteri wrote drawing from his childhood. He really witnessed a shooting on the street like that and his dad was really a New York City bus driver
Apparently it’s just a pyramid scheme where everything gets kick upward with the soldiers pulling in modest money, the capos taxing them, and then bosses taxing the capos.
Was going to post this. Criminally underrated mob movie...
Why were they bad? Because they were too out in the public?
Gotti was on the cover of Time magazine
Gotti brought all kinds of attention to the mob. He required all the capos to meet with him in broad daylight at the Ravenite Social Club like once a week, the FBI discovered entire crews they didn't know about thanks to those meetings. He wouldn't let any Gambino members take plea deals because they'd have to acknowledge they were in the mob, this forced them to go to trial where the sentences are much longer. His brother Gene who just got out of jail for drug dealing had been in prison since like 1990, he could've plead it out and gotten like 10-15 years instead of 30. None of the other families sent people to his funeral and notably former Lucchesse boss Anthony Casso said "what John Gotti did was the beginning of the end of Cosa Nostra."
The fuck do I know.

Man arrested in N.J. for killing of reputed Gambino family mob boss, report says
Updated 6:19 PM;Today 12:31 PM
Francesco (Frank) Cali, 53, was shot multiple times in front of his home on Hilltop Terrace on Wednesday, March 13, 2019. The police probe continues on Thursday morning as seen in these photos taken near the Cali family home.

A man has been arrested in New Jersey in connection with Shitty AMC Show of Francesco Cali, a reputed boss of a New York crime family, reports say.
Anthony Comello, 24, is from Staten Island, where the fatal shooting of Cali occurred Wednesday in front of his home in the Hilltop Terrace section of the borough, according to a report by APP.com. He was picked up early Saturday at a home in Brick, the report said.
Comello is being held in the Ocean County jail on a count of murder, according to the jail’s online inmate database.
Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn had referred to Cali in court filings in recent years as the underboss of the Gambino organization, related through marriage to the Inzerillo clan in the Sicilian Mafia.
Multiple press accounts since 2015 said Cali had ascended to the top spot in the gang, although he never faced a criminal charge saying so.
His only mob-related criminal conviction came a decade ago, when Cali pleaded guilty in an extortion conspiracy involving a failed attempt to build a NASCAR track on Staten Island. He was sentenced to 16 months in federal prison and was released in 2009.
The last crime family boss to be shot in New York City was Paul Castellano. The Gambino crime boss was assassinated outside Sparks Steakhouse in Manhattan in 1985.
The Gambino Family was once among the most powerful criminal organizations in the U.S., but federal prosecutions in the 1980s and 1990s sent its top leaders to prison and diminished its reach.

Shitty amc show kills me every time
Not all mob movies but a good list.
I bet it sucks knowing youre a dead man walking.
Sounding like it wasn’t mob related...
When a gunman handed a license plate to Gambino mob boss Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali moments before allegedly killing him in cold blood, he left behind fingerprints that identified him, a senior law enforcement official told The Daily Beast.
The prints helped police track 24-year-old Anthony Comello to a summer home in Brick Township on New Jersey’s south shore three days after Cali was gunned down in front of his Staten Island home.
In a press conference announcing his arrest, NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said Comello is awaiting extradition and will be charged with murder when he arrives on Staten Island. The Ocean County Department of Corrections said Comello was being held on murder charges.
“This is far from over,” Shea said. “The questions are was he acting alone, was he acting with other people, was someone else involved.”

Shea said police are still working on a motive for Shitty AMC Show, but one official said police believe the shooting is not related to the mob. Comello, who was described by two officials as “nuts,” shot Cali at least six times following a dispute over his niece.
Cali, a Brooklyn-raised gangster who’s headed the Gambino crime family since 2015, had told the suspect to stay away from his niece, who was at Cali’s home at the time of Shitty AMC Show, the official said.
Shooting of Frank Cali may have been over ‘personal dispute’

NYPD questioning suspect in killing of Gambino mob boss Frank Cali
The man cops believe gunned down Gambino mob boss Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali may have done so because of a “personal dispute” — and not because of any mafia-related business, law enforcement sources told The Post.
The dispute was over a woman in Cali’s family, according to multiple law enforcement sources. The nature of the dispute was not yet clear.
The suspect, who the sources say is a 24-year-old Staten Island resident with no criminal record, is being questioned in connection to the brazen Wednesday night shooting, and cops are looking into the “possibility” that he had some sort of beef with the powerful mobster.
He was arrested by the US Marshals’ New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force in Brick, N.J., where he has family, according to sources. He was awaiting extradition Saturday afternoon.
The shooting was definitely not mob-related the sources said.
Authorities got the suspect’s fingerprint off the license plate of Cali’s silver Cadillac Escalade SUV — which he handed to the mobster after allegedly smashing into the car, the sources said.
Cali, 53, was shot several times in front of his brick mansion in the lavish Todt Hill neighborhood at about 9:20 p.m. His wife and young children were inside, police sources told The Post.
He shook hands with the shooter before he was killed, a source said.
What a fucking moron.
These guys make Gotti look Iike a genius
