    This movie isn't talked about enough, especially in the mafia film genre. Saying that, this Is a terrific crime drama that has Johnny Depp and Al Pacino at their best. The dynamic relationship between Johnny Depp and Al Pacino's characters is what makes this film so gripping and compelling.

    A slow burning film. One with out a climactic end, one with few really intense moments... but instead a movie that relies on character interactions and relationships. It is long, steady, and after watching it you feel like you've spent years in Mike Newell's mafia. The movie shows off the dichotomous life that an undercover agent leads and the agony he must go through. On the one hand he is the playtoy of the FBI. On the other, he is…

    Másodszorra is szuper volt! Röviden a tartalma (valós FBI-os nyomozás alapján készült):
    Lefty, a már idősödő piti maffiózó (Al Pacino) felfigyel egy tehetséges ifjúra, akinek az ékszerek az erősségei, és amikor megbizonyosodik a képességeiről, beszervezi a családba Donnie Brasco-t (Johnny Depp). Megkedveli a fiút, bízik benne, ami nem túl bölcs dolog, hiszen az FBI ügynöke, az a feladata, hogy beépüljön a maffiába, és információkat gyűjtsön. Túl jól sikerül a kitűzött cél, egyre mélyebbre merül az alvilág mocskába, miközben lassan, de…

    Great performance by Depp. I didn't like Al Pacino as a fuckboy. Good mob film

    Every time I watch movies like this, I'm convinced I was a gangster in another life. Brilliant movie, dragged a bit for me, but otherwise an enjoyable experience.

    I remember when this came out during my senior year of high school, but I've never really been into gangster movies, so it didn't pique my interest. Then a couple years ago I got sucked into a fascinating mini-series on National Geographical Channel called Inside the American Mob. One episode covered the events of the FBI's Donnie Brasco operation, which I hadn't been aware was a real-life case. I found the story of undercover FBI agent Joseph D. Pistone, aka…

    One thing that Donnie Brasco showed was the tremendous talent of Johnny Depp this movie proved that he could go toe to toe with a legend such as Al Pacino.

    From the bowling shirts and greasy hair of the 1960s to the porn-stache and leather jackets of the 1970s and from Scorsese's manic film editing to Mike Newell's calculated and ponderous exploration of the inner psyche of FBI agent Joe Pistone who was undercovering as an infamous mafia Bonnano family gangster, it would be unfair to really judge the real quality of yet another 140 minutes long gangster flick.

    While at times it was a chore to burn through certain…

    The film is supposedly about Johnny Depp's undercover agent, but Al Pacino makes it about himself. Or his character, if there is a difference. He makes the character into such a fully fleshed human being full of bravado early on when he's showing the new kid the ropes, but then feeble and petty when dealing with people who he looks up to. It's an interesting image of a gangster.

    Depp's struggle with keeping the Joe and Donnie characters separate is…

    Love these films. Also, it was made back when Depp was still a real person, and Pacino chose good films.

    Revisiting this old favorite before it leaves Netflix. A underrated gangster flick that seems as if it's been largely forgotten.

    This is one of Pacino's better performances post-"Scent of a Woman." Johnny Depp is great just a few years before his descent into self parody. Heck even Michael Madsen is good here.

    The late Bruno Kirby has some of the best lines in the movie.

    Directed by the guy who did "Four Weddings and a Funeral" (of all things). The…
