Years ago, a Tumblr user posted a photo of a “knock off” shoe purchased online, with an odd label that read, “The greatest mafia movie ever made.
Scorsese has directed other mafia films, such as “The Irishman” and “Goodfellas” — but not 1973’s “Goncharov.”.
It even has a tagline: “the greatest mafia movie (n)ever made.” The dream all-star cast includes Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Cybill Shepherd, Gene Hackman and Harvey Keitel.
The movie turned into memeable gold when the picture of the mysterious shoe label was reblogged in 2020 with the caption, “this idiot hasn’t seen Goncharov.”.
Forbes speculated the unusual shoe tag may have misspelled “Gomorrah,” the 2008 Italian drama about the Naples mafia, directed by Matteo Garrone.
