Gotti : Can be found on youtube in many parts. The plot focuses and is based on real life Mob Boss John Gotti and his rise to power in the Gambino crime family, a criminal organization that exists to this very day in NY and America. The story is full of betrayals, twists and shows how the more power you have the more likely you'll be taken down.

 

Witness to the mob : can be found on Youtube in parts, Only it focuses on John gotti's best friend and right hand man, sammy "the bull" Gravano who eventually was the one who brought down Gotti and other top members at the time due to Sammy becoming a rat for the federal government.

Haven't watched it yet, but Shank would probably fit GTA - its about gangs taking over London in 2015

Anuvahood was hilarious and some characters would be utterly brilliant in a GTA, like Tyrone:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pL3HeyVEOAI

going to have to look for that on dvd it looks like a really good British film, lets just hope they have it in blockbuster
