Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Carlito’s Way (1993)

Directed by Brian De Palma

Starring Al Pacino, Sean Penn, Penelope Ann Miller, John Leguizamo


Great story, great characters, great directing. The suspense is fantastic. Great flavor. Probably my favorite De Palma film. If anything, a few subtle but sloppy continuity errors between angles in a few of the scenes.

Pacino delivers a commanding, engaging performance. He looks great, and he’s real cool. I love his voice, not as nasal as it used to be. I think he’s a better actor now than he ever was. Penn is also great, and Viggo is cool.
