(1997, Mike Newell) “30 years, I’m bustin’ my hump… for what?,” complains mobster Al Pacino — in one of his most sympathetic, low-key performances — but his crime protégé, Johnny Depp’s “Donnie,” has even worse job fatigue — he’s actually undercover FBI agent John Pistone (the real one served as consultant), frightened that, in his sixth year on the job, “I’m not becoming like them, I am them.” Approx. 127 min. 35mm.
“Tense, sharp and compelling… a worthy addition to the Mob movie canon.”
– Tom Charity, Time Out (London)
