Donnie Brasco 
Donnie Brasco review
3.5/4 stars

The story of a real life FBI agent Joseph D. Pistone as Donne Brasco (Johnny Depp) and his new friend Benjamin "Lefty" Ruggiero (Al Pacino). Pistone tries to penetrate a mafia under the aid of Lefty, who seem him as a protégé. Because of Pistone’s involvement with the criminal acts, he unintentionally evolves into becoming one of the mobs. Sensational acting and on-screen chemistry by the leads coupled with stunning cinematography and perfect tone during the near conclusion. The script was appealing, had drama and humor. In most films we loathe the antagonist, because of Pacino’s performance whose ranks in the “family” never improved and personal problems, you feel empathy for the deprived mobster. Depp displays his ability as a loving father transforming to a vehement Mafioso. Of course, playing an undercover cop is something he is familiar with (21 Jump Street). Even with a limited role, Anne Heche does well as Pistone’s wife. The musical score really made the film gritty and darker yet subtle because of the innocent people tragically involved. Definitely one of the best movies based on true to life events. The special features of the disc are worthwhile. In the words of Lefty – “A wise guy's always right even when he's wrong, he's right.” So for every wise guy/crime film lover out there, this film is right for you.
