For better or worse, Grou has a knack for staging brutality, and for having his movie rock out to a Joy Division track or two.
Somewhat fictionalizing a few elements from that decades-spanning exposé, Mafia Inc isn’t the most stylistically flamboyant, violent or memorable specimen within its screen genre. But it does provide an engrossing thicket of criminal intrigue that ultimately comes down to a conflict between two families.
The constant shifting between Italian, English and Québécois-accented French adds an extra texture, and the performances are as sharp as the suits.
While the gangster genre over the past 50 years has been the specialty of Italian-American auteurs (Coppola, Scorsese, DePalma and The Sopranos’ David Chase), Mafia Inc., directed by Quebec director Daniel Grou (a.k.a. Podz), stands up surprisingly well.
The best thing about the script and direction is that we rarely get too far ahead of it. We think we see what’s coming, but you never know.
