Director Ridley Scott's fact-based crime drama American Gangster (2007) tells the story of Frank Lucas (Denzel Washington), who maneuvers his way into becoming the top heroin importer in New York during the ’70s, and Detective Richie Roberts (Russell Crowe), an honest cop out to bring Lucas down. A savvy businessman, Frank wisely discourages his girls from wearing too much clothing while packing his product, resulting in an addictive array of bazooms, bunnage, and bush in the drug room. The French Connection this ain’t, but you can call us Gene Whack-man anyway. Gritty and epic at the same time, American Gangster spans years, traverses the globe, provides fascinating insight into the processes of criminal enterprises (and police obsession), and shines a glaring light on the Big Apple during its most rotten, wormy, hardcore period. Plus, KaDee Strickland busts out her big guns in bed with Crowe. American Gangster will make you a spankster.
