As much as i love Heat, its not a gangster film.
I think you're right. I believe it has much to do with the attire of the characters. When any such characters are doing dirt dressed in suits it is believed they are gangsters. Really though, gangster is a term more directed at mob figures which Heat does not really address.

Goodfellas
Casino
A Bronx Tale
Once Upon A Time In America
Donnie Brasco
Scarface

And then of course the Hongkong and Japan Gangsta movies like

A Better Tomorrow, The Killer, Hard Boiled, Dead Or Alive, Brother, etc., even though most of these cannot be called a typical gangsta movie.

And of course my personal favorite Chiko!
