Marc Streitenfeld's American Gangster
1-Mar-2008 - Varèse Sarabande has released American Gangster, the story of unnoticed Frank Lucas, the quiet driver to one of the inner city's leading black crime bosses. But when his boss suddenly dies, Frank exploits the opening in the power structure to build his own empire and create his own version of the American Dream. Through ingenuity and a strict business ethic, he comes to rule the inner-city drug trade. Richie Roberts is an outcast cop close enough to the streets to feel a shift of control in the drug underworld. Roberts believes someone is climbing the rungs above the known Mafia families and starts to suspect that a black power player has come from nowhere to dominate the scene. Newcomer Marc Streitenfeld contributes a sprawling score that is at turns both aggressive and beautiful.
