Notorious mobster Al Capone (Robert De Niro) rules Chicago - a town that "stinks like a whorehouse at low tide" - until he is targeted by incorruptible lawman Eliot Ness (Kevin Costner) and his handpicked team. Sean Connery landed an Oscar as the Irish street cop who teaches Ness "the Chicago way" in Brian De Palma's perfectly executed thriller. A class act all round, from David Mamet's quote-worthy script to the prohibition era threads by Georgio Armani.
