One terrific movie... Pacino and Depp are a match made in acting heaven, riffing off each other with astonishing subtlety and wit. Read full review
The true soul of the New York mob is portrayed in Donnie Brasco, a first-class Mafia thriller that is also in its way a love story -- perhaps director Mike Newell's best. Read full review
Pacino cans the showboating bluster and gives a gently nuanced portrait of a simple man in decline. Read full review
It's the electric interplay between Pacino and Depp that will make it a Mob movie classic. Read full review
The violence in this movie is gruesome (a scene involving the disposal of bodies is particularly graphic). But the movie has many human qualities and contains what will be remembered as one of Pacino's finest scenes. Read full review
What better casting than Al Pacino, whose own career, of course, has reflected all the seasonal changes in the gangster saga. Pacino takes the part and runs with it so boldly that he ends up in Arthur Miller land. Read full review
This sort of story has been told many times before, but thoughtful performances by Al Pacino and Johnny Depp make it more engrossing than expected. Read full review
