Donnie Brasco

Donnie Brasco ★★★

Donnie Brasco is a superbly written, well-acted gangster film with a heart.
Al Pacino blew me away with his performance as Lefty; after watching this you can't help but feel demoralised by how easily people can be mislead and manipulated into an ultimately bleak, horrifically violent and unsatisfying lifestyle.

Johhny Depp is also on his A-game as Brasco himself, all culminating into a thoughtful character study in a genre bloated with often unrealistic interpetations on what it's truly like to 'be a gangster'
