He played everything :

The heir to an old-school Don
A ruthless Mafia Don  with political ties
A corrupt politician with Mafia ties
A comical mobster
A disrespected underboss
A Hispanic druglord incarnating the pervert side of the American Dream

and even a Hispanic ex-gangster whose dream is to find peace and redemption in Carlito's Way

Storyline

Hunters and their prey--Neil and his professional criminal crew hunt to score big money targets (banks, vaults, armored cars) and are, in turn, hunted by Lt. Vincent Hanna and his team of cops in the Robbery/Homicide police division. A botched job puts Hanna onto their trail while they regroup and try to put together one last big 'retirement' score. Neil and Vincent are similar in many ways, including their troubled personal lives. At a crucial moment in his life, Neil disobeys the dictum taught to him long ago by his criminal mentor--'Never have anything in your life that you can't walk out on in thirty seconds flat, if you spot the heat coming around the corner'--as he falls in love. Thus the stage is set for the suspenseful ending.... Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

I do not care if it is categorized by genre
I dont care if it is on a list.

This is the definition of organized crime
HEAT DOES NOT QUALIFY

Organized crime is a category of transnational, national, or local groupings of highly centralized enterprises run by criminals who intend to engage in illegal activity, most commonly for profit. Some criminal organizations, such as terrorist groups, are politically motivated. Sometimes criminal organizations force people to do business with them, such as when a gang extorts money from shopkeepers for "protection".[1] Gangs may become disciplined enough to be considered organized. A criminal organization or gang can also be referred to as a mafia, mob,[2][3] ring,[4] or syndicate;[5] the network, subculture and community of criminals may be referred to as the underworld. European sociologists (e.g. Diego Gambetta) define the mafia as a type of organized crime group that specializes in the supply of extra-legal protection and quasi law enforcement. Gambetta's classic work on the Sicilian Mafia[6] generates an economic study of the mafia, which exerts great influence on studies of the Russian Mafia,[7] the Chinese Mafia,[8] Hong Kong Triads[9] and the Japanese Yakuza.[10]
