Genre: Thriller

Ten years after the memorable Scarface, Brian de Palma and Al Pacino met again for this Thriller movie Carlito’s Way (1994). Carlito’s Way is a tale of a former hood trying to escape his former life. Al Pacino is Carlito Brigante, a high-level Puerto Rican drug dealer sprung from a three-decade jail sentence after only five years, thanks to a technicality and his sleazy, cocaine-addled lawyer, Dave Kleinfeld (Sean Penn). Carlito renounces his previous ways and takes a job as the manager of a club that Kleinfeld has invested in, planning to save enough money so that he can eventually move to the Caribbean.

Rating: 8/10

EXTRA: Scene from Scarface also starring Al Pacino (10 years ago in another Brian de Palma’s movie)
