“The Making of the Mob” is an 8 part series looking at how organized crime developed in NYC from 1905-1955. Ray Liotta narrates the docu-drama, as interviews and recreations take the stage. It’s quite the odd format for AMC to take on, but I appreciate the novelty of the setup. However, it might be a bit frustrating for anyone that has studied the topic at length. That being said, America doesn’t care for smart people, bookworm.
For those that still care, a great deal of the material in the show was taken from the debunked “Last Testament of Lucky Luciano”. It follows in the footsteps of such shams as the fake Howard Hughes will and the Emancipation Retraction. The Blu-Ray comes with a stunning Dolby TrueHD 5.1 master audio track as part of its stellar presentation. You also get additional scenes and featurettes as the special features.
