10th and Wolfe The Departed

Here are two movie picks for this month. I haven’t done any movie recommendations in awhile. Both of these are mafia gangster movies. One is actually based upon a true story. I’m sure many of you have seen the movie Donnie Brasco based upon the true life story of FBI Agent Joseph Pistone. 10th and Wolfe is another real life tale from actual events that took place in Pistone’s life when he was undercover as Donnie Brasco. Each flick has been getting heavy rotation in the cable television line up the past few weeks. If you looking for a couple of movies with twist and turns. 10th and Wolfe and The Departed should fit the bill. You definitely should skip both if your not into extremely violent gangster films. If GoodFellas, Donnie Brasco and Casino made your stomach turn. Then you should stay away from the selections mentioned above.
