Carlito's Way (10-Nov-1993)

Director: Brian De Palma

Writer: David Koepp

From novel: Carlito's Way by Edwin Torres

Music by: Patrick Doyle

Producers: Martin Bregman; Willi Baer; Michael S. Bregman

Keywords: Crime, Cocaine

Puerto Rican drug kingpin Carlito Brigante narrowly escapes a thirty year jail sentence on a technicality, serving only five; he wants to go retire from a lifetime of crime, but his associates decide otherwise. Thoroughly captivating; strong performances from Al Pacino and Sean Penn. A very different film than De Palma's Scarface (1983), also starring Pacino.
