THE MAKING OF THE MOB: NEW YORK

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

7.30PM, HISTORY

This eight-part se­ries, nar­rated by Ray Liotta, charts the rise of mob­sters in­clud­ing Charles “Lucky” Lu­ciano, Meyer Lan­sky, Ben­jamin “Bugsy” Siegel and Vito Gen­ovese. A mix of doc­u­men­tary and dra­matic recre­ations, it doesn’t quite make the most of its fas­ci­nat­ing mafia source ma­te­rial. Too many of the staged scenes come across as cliché re­hashes of The God­fa­ther or Good­fel­las.
