Name some classics, mind garden, and underated Mobster Meal scenes in film.

I was just watching The Punisher War Zone and dude shot up the room hanging upside down from the chandeleir.

Please to include Japanese, Russian,South American, Carribean, Chinese, etc, if there are any.
And is this a strictly Italian Motif?

Cant use the Untouchables and tv shows.

    Cliche but you gotta love the prison scene in Goodfellas, shaving the garlic with a razor blade. I think about that ever time I slice a clove.

    do they have to be gangsters? can they be people of nefarious means?

    The meal at the end of The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover.

    The octopus scene in Old Boy.

    Near the end of Goodfellas, when Henry is coked out but has the mind to make sure someone is assigned to keep stirring the the pasta sauce.

    Besides Italian American films, this always comes to mind.

    And while there is only a bit of food shown in this scene (Eating some crazy food). I still love this fight scene.

    I could find the isolated scene but Tommy invades an Italian restaurant while the mob is eating. Wine and speghetti is spilled iirc.

    IIRC theres a scene in New Jack City where some rivals are eating outside ans Nino Brown and them do a drive by.
