Recommend any Russian Mob movies?

Recently watched Eastern Promises and The Jackal.

Any other good ones out there? Doesn't matter if they are in foreign languages.

There is also a second one which is just as good and filmed in Chicago.

The second one was shot at Russian Restaurant "Metropol" in Glenview, I used to work there at that time at the bar!

That place was a riot! owned by one of the Chicago "Russian Mafia" families and frequented by many colorful personalities, some of them died from non-natural causes, some are in jail, some are out of the country now!

you can call it what ever you want, mafia, avtoritety, vory, it's the same shit.

I happened to know a few of them from 90s when I worked in Metropol, they didn't like word mafia either

but I guess when one dies in prison, another lives in prison and the guy who put them in prison is in some kind of witness protection program, and another guy who used to work for them is shot behind a Russian grocery store, they are not a charity non-profit organization either

A good Russian Movie? - Websters Dictionary defines "Oxymoron" as.......

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"
