  1. Also a friend and I have been trying to write a script for a live-action comedy film centering around a guy who spends years undercover in a New York crime family, it’s set in the 2020s, and I watching this while thinking about that made me think about how there aren’t that many mafia films set in the modern day, it’s all about the 70s and 80s and stuff, The Sopranos is probably as modern as it gets. Would be interesting to explore how the mob operates in the internet age and in a post-9/11 world. Frank Cali was assassinated by a QAnon supporter. That’s insane. The boss of the Gambino crime family, who ran the show for years, got taken out by some guy who thought Trump wanted him to because he was told so on 4Chan. Not gonna see that kiwi in Goodfellas.

    1. @zeldatra Is the modern Italian-American mob as tech-oriented as the Russians? 21st mafia movie, just be like an early 2000s hacker flick :p

      1. @scribus just imagining kicking the cherry out of a bodega owner who’s late on his payments, and then having him Venmo you the cash
