Donnie Brasco

Donnie Brasco ★★★★

"Donnie Brasco" is based on the real story of FBI agent Joseph D. Pistone, who infiltrated the New York mafia in the 1970s under the alias Donnie Brasco.

One of the greatest strengths of the film are the very great performances by the actors. Johnny Depp in particular can convince in the role of the undercover agent and Al Pacino as mafia hitman Lefty also plays great. Supporting actors such as Michael Madsen and Anne Heche can also convince. Cinematography and editing are nothing out of the ordinary, but they do not negatively influence the film. The story is well written and, according to the real Joseph D. Pistone, very accurate and represents the mob as it is. Certainly a great film that is really fun to watch.
