10 Overlooked Masterpieces of American Crime Cinema

"There's an old saying that crime doesn't pay – but one thing's for sure: it certainly does make for excellent movies. It's almost troubling just how many acclaimed films revolve around illegal activity, including underworld-based classics like The Godfather, Bonnie and Clyde, Goodfellas and Pulp Fiction.
It has to be said that American filmmakers and audiences appear to have a particular appetite for crime flicks. In addition to the movies listed above, there have been numerous brilliantly executed additions to the genre courtesy of directors hailing from America, so much so that more than a few have gone unnoticed."
