Last time on "Boardwalk Empire," an unlikely witness threatened to expose the perpetrators of the woods massacre, sending Eli - and Agent Nelson Van Alden - rushing to the hospital. As Nucky re-evaluates his relationship with Lucy, Margaret started a new job at an upscale French dress shop at the Ritz. Chalky's team pays a heavy price for taking over Mickey Doyle's bootleg operation, causing Chalky to reevaluate his relationship with Nucky.
According to many reports and what little insider information I have, it is very likely that Martin Scorsese will direct the pilot episode of Boardwalk Empire .
The fourth episode of “Boardwalk Empire” – possibly the young show’s best episode yet – reveals that the series is something completely unexpected: It’s a love story.

That Stephen Graham has kicked, punched, stamped and spat his way into the public consciousness is made all the more strange when you discover that in reality, he's possibly the nicest man in the business. As he explains his decision to take his wife, children, parents, brothers and friends for a holiday to Hawaii while he was there shooting Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides ("It's something you have to share"), it's hard to associate him with his current incarnation in HBO's epic crime drama, Boardwalk Empire, in which Graham plays a stocky, violent little driver for the Chicago mob named Alphonse "Al" Capone. And it's even harder to see how he managed to channel Combo, the racist thug from Shane Meadows 's This Is England and This Is England '86 .

Crime and Gangster Films are developed around the sinister actions of criminals or gangsters, particularly bankrobbers, underworld figures, or ruthless hoodlums who operate outside the law, stealing and violently murdering their way through life. In the 1940s, a new type of crime thriller emerged, more dark and cynical - see the section on film-noir for further examples of crime films. Criminal and gangster films are often categorized as post-war film noir or detective-mystery films - because of underlying similarities between these cinematic forms.
