This was a well written mob story that was period correct. I embraced all of the characters and casting was dead on. As a Italian American I loved all the old school references to our culture. The feast scenes were a throw back to my youth, the sights and sounds were beautiful. I could almost taste the sausage and peppers. Federico Castelluccio proved himself as a feature film director with Brooklyn Banker. He captured the essence of this period in time. I have to also recognize the writing of Michael Ricigliano his interesting twist on this mob flick kept me interested and rooting for certain characters. He really captured the old school mob movies and this will be destined to be a cult classic. I really enjoyed this film and highly recommend it.

From someone who grew up in the Bronx and Brooklyn, this film captures what it was like to live during that time. The Mob was not revered like some of the Mob Genre films I have seen in the past. They were avoided and the story of a legitimate guy who unintentionally gets involved seems very real. <br/><br/>I enjoyed the cinematography that captured a gritty but beautiful view of the area as it was starting to change. Troy Garity, who I understand grew up in California, captured the nuances and cadence of the residents of Brooklyn who spoke was was on their mind, were loyal to a fault and protected their friends and family.<br/><br/>David Proval played a simmering psychopath who was ready to blow at any moment. Paul Sorvino was great as the goofy father in law who is smarter than he lets on.<br/><br/>All in all, I think this film will stand the test of time.

I was excited to find a mob movie that I hadn&#39;t seen, but then a little worried after seeing some poor reviews.Don&#39;t pay attention to the low ratings. They are absolutely unjustified. There is nothing wrong with the acting. How can you go wrong with top players from the Sopranos and Goodfellas?If you like this genre of movies, settle in with your favorite beverage on a cold winter night and enjoy a great show.
