Boss of Bosses

Synopsis: This film follows the life of Paul Castellano, a mobster who rose in the ranks of New York City's Gambino crime family with the help of his considerable intelligence until he was picked to become the reigning don of the family in the 1970s. Flush with his power, he charts a new course for the mob with the emphasis on a low profile approach exploiting quiet crime business like labour union control while promising to deal with murderous severity anyone he catches dealing with drugs. Yet for all the sureness of his position's authority, his own indiscretions in his personal life provide complications of his own. With this being combined with the growing restiveness of his underling's discomfort with his quiet approach and the FBI agents who are determined to bring him down, then the stage is set for a tragic fall.

- Mr. Genovese!

Who we got here?

This here's my crew,

cousin Paulie Castellano...

...Neil and Piney.

Word is a bunch of kids took off

the Nardinos over on Mott Street.

Then they're giving out free trees?

Carlo, whose idea was all this?

Paulie. It was his bright idea.

Castellano? The butcher's kid?

Get away.

Paulie, huh?

I like it. Make people happy.

Don't cost, that's good for business.

Hey, look at me.

You got "costanza," kid.

- Carlo, Neil and Piney helped too.

- Good.

Here, hand out a couple bucks

with the trees.

People can't eat no pine cones.

You keep thinking, Paulie.

I'll remember your name.

Hey, come here, you.

Here, next time use these.

- Put them away, guys.

- Finally.

- Thanks, Mr. Genovese.

- Don't mention it. Go.

Big Paul, the thinker. You and me,

we're gonna go a long way together.

Right to the top.

- Ain't it nice up here?

- Yeah, it is.

You see them skyscrapers?

That's where the power lives. The guy

with the gold, he makes the rules.

The guy with the gun gets the gold.

- That sounds like Carlo talking.

- Well, he's right, Nina.

There are two kinds of people:

There are those who take

and those who want.

Well, I don't want

a little butcher shop.

A bunch of kids crammed

into some fourth-floor walkup.

That's not for me.

That's not for you.

I want you in a big house.

I want you riding in a nice

luxury car.

Our kids in the best schools.

You know you want it... much as I do.

I could see it in your eyes.

I want that life that you're talking

about, I do.

- I'm afraid what might happen to you.

- Well, don't be.

Don't be. I can handle it.

And we can have it all, Nina,

just you and me.

- I don't know.

- Yes, you do.

You know, Nina.

You know.

All you got to do

is say you're with me.

- Promise me one thing.
