Hump Day Classic Movie: The Untouchables

I usually make fun of Kevin Costner movies. After all, he's our modern John Wayne. Meaning he plays himself in every movie he's in. But in this movie, it works.

I am normally a happy movie person. But The Untouchables made an impact on me. Part of it is the result of the cast. Sean Conner, Andy Garcia, Robert De Niro... Part of it is the fact that this is a bloody movie that really doesn't attempt to gloss over the fact that the subject matter is violent. It's not glamorized. The violence during prohibition was real, but too many movies make it look noble.

I think this is one of those movies everyone should see at least once.
