The events portrayed in Donnie Brasco are loosely based around the true-story of Special Agent Joe Pistone and his six-year long undercover stint in one of the Mafia families of New York. The film documents the effects of the mission on Pistone's secret family life and his own personal psyche as he develops split loyalties between his FBI obligations and the new acquaintances he develops in the fa... read more

By far one of the best if not the best mob/gangster movie I have seen. Based on a true story this film is absolutely brilliant.

It tells the true story of Joseph D. Pistone, an FBI agent who goes undercover as Donnie Brasco to find information on an aging hitman 'Lefty' and his gang. The information found out by Joseph was amazing and led to many convictions. But after a while Josep... read more

Mike Newell, the director of the greatest Harry Potter installment, directed this great, a little on the short, gangster-drama, or grama, movie. Al Pacino has done many memorable roles in his extensive career but none has been more funny or more sympathic than the animals-obsessed Lefty in this movie. Working alongside with Johnny Depp (Joseph Pistone a.k.a Donnie Brasco) & Michael Madsen (Sonny B... read more

An FBI undercover agent infilitrates the mob and finds himself identifying more with the mafia life to the expense of his regular one.

30 From 97: My Favorite Films From 1997 (30 movies items)

"Al Pacino in the mob, but this time, on the opposite side of the heirarchy. A low-level aging hitman who can't get no respect. One of the few times Al gets to expand his acting muscles as opposed to just flexing 'em with a loud performance, which, over the years, has sorta become his standard. For me, a great gangster movie isn't just about "wacking" people. It's when it shows the inner-most details of how the mob works. This one goes towards the very lowest part of the totem and shows us how th"

A very good movie

“Back in 2015, Johnny Depp tried to make a come-back with ‘Black Mass’ but even though his performance was praised, the movie itself didn’t get much love after all (I still have to watch it myself). In fact, almost 20 years earlier, Johnny Depp already played in another gangster flick and, with this movie, he also received some of the best reviews of his career. To be honest, it has been a while since I saw the damned thing but, if I recall it correctly, I actually saw it in the movie theater when it was released at the time. Anyway, ever since he left ’21 Jump Street’, Johnny Depp had been famous for playing some rather weird and eccentric characters but, for once, he was playing someone slightly more straightforward than usual. Eventually, the end-result was quite impressive and” read more
