A great movie

For some reasons, I have always been fascinated  by this movie. It probably had to do with the fact that I was very young when I saw it (I was probably around 14 years old), at that point, I haven’t watched yet so many gangster features such as ‘The Godfather’ or even ‘Scarface’ and it probably made me appreciate more this movie. Anyway, somehow, even though this movie has some very str... read more

One of Brian De Palma's best films

I was thoroughly impressed with Carlito's Way. So far it is my favourite Brian De Palma film alongside Carrie and The Untouchables. De Palma's direction itself is terrific, while some of the set pieces such as the pool fight, the 15-minute subway chase and the shenanigans on the train-station escalator are among the best in any De Palma film.The cinematography is excellent, the lighting is used in... read more

One of Brian De Palma's best films

“I was thoroughly impressed with Carlito's Way. So far it is my favourite Brian De Palma film alongside Carrie and The Untouchables. De Palma's direction itself is terrific, while some of the set pieces such as the pool fight, the 15-minute subway chase and the shenanigans on the train-station escalator are among the best in any De Palma film.The cinematography is excellent, the lighting is used in an interesting way and the scenery and locations are striking. In short, the film looks good. The soundtrack drives the film very well too, the script is smart and funny and the story is ceaselessly compelling. The pace is spot on, and the acting is very good. Al Pacino gives a suitably restrained performance which was a refreshing change from his excessive performance in Scarface, while the supp” read more

"First viewing - Feb. 16th Once upon a time this was near the top of my Netflix queue as something my fellow Listalites highly recommended I check out. Clearly I never got around to it back then, but luckily it's currently on Starz which allowed me to finally correct that mistake. I'm sure I don't need to tell you that Pacino and Penn deliver very strong performances in this film. Basically everybody does for that matter.
