New England Crime Time

I recently posted a list of some of my favorite and grittiest of New York City films from the 1970s. This time around I thought I select some crime films from the combined states that make up New England. As you may suspect Massachusetts, Boston in particular, makes up the majority of the films and the grittiest. Not all these films are gritty or from the 70’s but they are films with criminal elements.

  1. Some really great selections there John 🙂 I love it that you chose Shutter Island as one of your many favorites. I personally think that it is one of (If not) Martin Scorsese’s most underrated films. Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
