I was glad to finally have an excuse to watch this movie; my dad’s been telling me to watch it for years and I always kept the DVD in my room and just never got around to it. When I started watching, I was mostly just excited to see most of the Sopranos characters in it, it felt like every two seconds a new Soprano character showed up and I’m pretty sure I squealed every time. Anyway, organized crime like this is my favourite to watch and read about. They’re so classy compared to the robbers and rapists and murderers we’ve learned about previously. There’s such a large group of them and they’re almost untouchable due to payoffs and I guess just organization. I always do find it ironic how they seem so classy and think of themselves this way, but they always end up muling and slinging drugs and cheating on their wives and their whole lives just end up ending terribly (most of the time – cough, the Godfather). I am intrigued by the impact of family – both each individual’s family and their entire Family. I suppose that’s usually just the Italian and the Catholicism, but even Karen was the same way. I loved watching Henry’s character grow and learn and go from everything to nothing. The end was a nice touch, how he described that he didn’t regret the crime and he actually missed it compared to the boring life he had in witness protection.
