I totally agree with you and Martin Scorcese is just as guilty.In their "heydays," Pacino and DeNiro prostituted themselves and helped tp perpetuate the myth that Italians are violent gangsters. They may be wealthy, but I'll bet they are now suffering from a lot of guilt. These cruddy films they now make are their just rewards.
One thing that really bothers mean about DeNiro is his race mixing ways.
He's just a self hating white guy.
