Carlito’s Way (1993)

Rewatching for my The Complete Pacino list.

Watching this for the first time in many, many years, and it suddenly dawned on me how much of a Brian De Palma film this is. For me, not such a good thing. As an example, the female characters don’t even merit second names. I like the voice-over a lot less this time around too.

Pacino is fine playing something familiar, and perhaps the best is Sean Penn who is completely and believably off the wall.
