Toby Chew? Toby Wong? Movies w/ gangsters?

I'm on a gangster movie binge. Reservoir Dogs, Boondock Saints, RocknRolla (basically all of Guy Ritchie's stuff). I need more in this vein to fulfil my craving for cool men doing violence in innovative ways. I'd like recommendations for modern movies preferably without the Italian mafia. Bonus points for United Kingdom focused films.

Wounded inside with a tough smart exterior that push people away with sarcasm or slight jerkish behaviour. Help me find examples in literature so I can continue my current obsession when I shut the tv off. [more inside]

Music to make me cry?

I've been listening to Johnny Cash's American V and it is breaking my heart. I'm in a wallowing mood and looking for other such raw emotional songs that are relatively simple (not a lot of instruments). Any genre. [more inside]
