Journalist Mark Allen Johnson goes to any length to get the story, even if it means putting his life at risk. In "American Underworld," Johnson investigates some of the most extreme and violent subcultures in the country, from drug manufacturers to car-theft rings to the sex trade. He gains access to these highly secretive worlds by using both brains and bravado, and allowing him to use a video camera often takes months of negotiations to secure the trust of his subjects. In the end his efforts pay off with raw and compelling footage.

The world’s oldest profession is now a thriving black market economy, with an underground workforce that’s just an Internet connection and a phone call away. National Geographic’s Mariana van Zeller journeys to the heart of the American escort industry and uncovers the gritty reality behind the supply and demand of high-end sex work.

The moment he's released from prison, the honorable gangster Miyamoto recovers the stolen diamonds he had stashed before getting pinched. When he returns to his haunt to make good by friend who took a bullet for him, he is diverted by the greedy boss Oyane and his insatiable taste for Miyamoto's precious stones. Replete with film noir style, "Underworld Beauty" is one of Suzuki's best nods to the American gangster genre.

Genre: Crime, Mystery, Thriller | A film by Wim Wenders

Wim Wenders pays loving homage to rough-and-tumble Hollywood film noir with The American Friend, a loose adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel Ripley’s Game. Dennis Hopper oozes quirky menace as an amoral American art dealer who entangles a terminally ill German everyman, played by Bruno Ganz, in a seedy criminal underworld as revenge for a personal slight – but when the two become embroiled in an ever-deepening murder plot, they form an unlikely bond. Filmed on location in Hamburg and Paris, with some scenes shot in grimy, late-seventies New York City, Wenders’s international breakout is a stripped-down crime story that mixes West German and American film flavors, and it features cameos by filmmakers Jean Eustache, Samuel Fuller, and Nicholas Ray.
