Overview

Right off the back of his Oscar win for Scent of a Woman, Al Pacino reunited with Scarface director Brian De Palma for one of the great crime films of the 1990s, Carlito's Way. In 1970s New York, notorious gangster Carlito Brigante (Pacino) gets released from prison early, thanks to his smooth-talking, flame-haired lawyer (Sean Penn). He reunites with his lost love, Gail (Penelope Ann Miller), and gets a taste of a more peaceful, joyful life outside of crime. That’s easier said than done, as Carlito gets pulled back into the underworld despite his best efforts, with enemies closing in from all corners.

Why You Should See This Film

Also starring John Leguizamo, Luis Guzmán, and Viggo Mortensen, Carlito’s Way has come to be regarded as among De Palma’s most accomplished films, and one of Pacino’s finest performances. A hard-hitting gangster noir laced with romance, melancholy and suspense (not to mention a killer disco soundtrack), it’s bound to become a sentimental favourite, if it isn’t one of yours already.
