Martin Scorsese vs. Francis Ford Coppola – Who’s the Don of Mob Movies?

Few directors have captured the mob on the big screen more masterfully than Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese. Coppola’s The Godfather and The Godfather Part II continually hold the No. 1 and No. 2 slots on’s Greatest Mob Movies List, while Scorsese has devoted a substantial part of his career to the underworld, from his breakout flick Mean Streets to his Oscar-winning The Departed.
