Donnie Brasco

Donnie Brasco ★★★★

An underappreciated gem from the late 90s. Peak Johnny Depp (remember when he was the coolest actor on the movie *sigh*) and late career/pre-washed up Pacino. Their chemistry together is electric and perfectly compliment to each other’s performances.  

Cut from the same cloth as Goodfellas and Casino (albeit a bit more corny at times), this gangster film feels like one of the most realistic, unflattering portrayals of the mafia underworld of the 70s that just got lost in the weeds.
