In the beginning the Cosa Nostra only killed their own, but at the dawn of the seventies the notorious criminal organization also began targeting prosecutors, judges, and anyone else who dared to question their violent ways.

Within 20 minutes, all the accumulated romance of scores of Mafia epics washes away, and all the accumulated nonsense about 'men of honor' and 'men of respect' circles the drain.

In showing all the stuff that the History Channel discreetly edits out, Excellent Cadavers dismantles the celluloid romanticizing of the Mafia.

This gripping Italian documentary (2005) recounts the decadelong campaign by magistrates Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino to break the back of the Sicilian Mafia.

A rich mine of information on a subject about which it is sometimes too easy to be superficial.

Marco Turco's film is a thorough, journalistic examination that is ultimately as horrifying as it is informative.

Anyone with the slightest interest in mob entertainment -- from The Godfather to The Sopranos -- should check out Marco Turco's grimly compelling documentary

Bittersweet bio-pic pays tribute to two a couple of Italian prosecutors crazy enough to take on the mob.

Every history book has a mundane chapter you don't want to study that will still be covered on the final exam.

Despite new leadership in this country of great wines, world-leading design, and art both classical and modern (including fimmaking), the pattern seems to say that Italy is destined to live with the corruption that rules the corridors of power.

The story is both heartening and heartbreaking.

It shows the Cosa Nostra as the unstoppable and infinitely adaptable virus it is, and serves as a good entree to Stille's far more thorough book.

Too many frames of this documentary are devoted to narrator Stille paging through archives or walking in front of or into ornate buildings.

Marco Turco's absorbing and gut-wrenching look on the Sicilian Mafia and the Italian government's attempts to crush it is essential viewing for anyone interested in recent Italian history.

The cockroach-like resilience of the Sicilian Mafia is examined with careful calculation in this passionate but ultimately resigned documentary.
