New England Crime Time

John Greco Author/Photographer

I recently posted a list of some of my favorite and grittiest of New York City films from the 1970s. This time around I thought I select some crime films from the combined states that make up New England. As you may suspect Massachusetts, Boston in particular, makes up the majority of the films and the grittiest. Not all these films are gritty or from the 70’s but they are films with criminal elements.

    Some really excellent choices here 🙂 I am also glad that you included Shutter Island as one of the great ones as I find it highly underrated. Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
