5.0 out of 5 stars The coolest film ever made, 20 Oct 2003
This review is from: Carlito's Way [DVD] [1994] (DVD)
I've always found it strange that this film has never had the cult acclaim that films such as Scarface and Goodfellas recieved.
The truth is that it's far better than either of those films. In fact I'll echo the sentiments that it is the best ganster film of all time.
The eratic Brian De Palma imbues style and substance in this film more than he ever has done. There's something so definitively cool about every part of Carlito's Way.
Al Pacino fleshes out the part of the wise old hood to perfection. These sorts of roles are harder to perform than the over the top ham that we sometimes expect from him. It's been said a thousand times before, but I have to repeat that Sean Penn is sinisterly wonderful in his part as the obnoxious coke fiend. In fact, there isn't one mediocre performance in this. The film that has everything. It's just a shame that so many people haven't even heard of it.
