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)

BEST SONGS

– “If loving you is a Crime” by Lee Moses

from the movie “A Teacher” (bad movie, 2/10)

Lee Moses (13 March 1941 – 1997) was an American R&B and soul singer and guitarist, whose recordings in the late 1960s, and his 1971 LP Time and Place, are highly regarded by fans of the deep soul genre. He had some intonations closed to Otis Redding’s voice added to a real funk rhythm and tremendous energy. This song deserved a better movie.

Another notable great song is “Bad Girl” used for the movie “BLOOD TIES” (2013), actually my favorite Lee Moses’ tittle:

Please also enjoy his amazing “Hey Joe” version:

That was one of the best soul voice ever in my opinion.
