Review: Donnie Brasco

Donnie Brasco follows the story of Joseph Pistone an undercover FBI agent who infiltrates a crime family in NYC to help bring it down.

The plot is straightforward with performances which drive the whole experience. This is a late 90s crime drama with every good element of cinema.

The perfomances although contained many significant contributions but at the end of the day it was shadowed by two names Al Pacino and Johnny Depp(which is understandable and is not a bad thing). Johnny Depp as the secret agent with the alias 'Donnie Brasco' was a perfomance with many layers and lived up to my expectations. The great Al Pacino as 'Lefty' is one of his many organised crime performances and clearly as good as the others. The chemistry between Depp and Pacino which developed throughout the film's runtime was remarkable and well paced.

Cinematically this movie was pretty similar to all the other 20th century mafia films and was not something special. Plot wise the movie was fine but it was the way the plot was executed with the pace of writing and dialogues is what made this movie a great watch.The soundtrack was also well chosen and the sound editing was also pretty solid for its time.

Donnie Brasco is a crime drama which purely depends on the emotions of brotherhood,loyalty and righteousness and not some 'bloodbath action'. The ending was emotionally devastating with the credits which to my surprise revealed that this was based on a true incident(yes I didn't know this before watching the movie). Donnie Brasco is a film which features one of many faces of Johnny Depp and a remarkable performance by Al Pacino which makes it worth your time.

🅵🅸🅻🅼: 8.5/10.
Based on a true story, Mike Newell's tale of an FBI agent infiltrating the mob is one that resonates with me quite a lot. Unlike most mob-related films of the 90's, it isn't ultra violent and doesn't have flash. What it does have is a very grounded take, with great characters on the page that translate well to the screen.

Al Pacino is the world around which Johnny Depp's Donnie Brasco revolves. It's one of my favourite performances of his, because for once Pacino is playing a character who acts big, but is really a small fish. He might be a father figure to Donnie, but to others in his organisation he's not so large as the impression he gives the undercover agent. Depp is impressive too, showing a level of comfort that he never had earlier in his career. It's the reason why he fast became a favourite of mine.

The story has enough action to keep things moving along, and there's drama in spades between Joe's home life and his life as Donnie. When those collide, it makes for scenes that don't shy away from a host of relationship troubles - sometimes with shocking results.

Whilst 𝘊𝘢𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘰 and 𝘎𝘰𝘰𝘥𝘧𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘴 might get most of the 90's mob film praise, this one remains a firm favourite of mine because it tries something different. It's underrated in the genre, and particularly in that era of it.

“And listen to me, if Donnie calls…, tell him… if it was gonna be anyone, I’m glad it was him.

All right?”

Lefty & Donnie
#donniebrasco #blowmovie #brasco #josephpistone #alpacino #johnnydepp #mikenewell #depp #pacinotti

Ever wondered how the senior Mafioso's teach the New Comers about hit's.

Well due to the FBI wiretaps you can know how it's done

Benjamin "Lefty" Ruggiero: "You Ever Do A Hit On Anybody Donnie?"

Joseph "Donnie Brasco" Pistone: "I Never Had A Contract If Thats What You Mean, I Killed A Couple Of Guys, One Guy In A Fight, Another Guy That Fucked Me Out Of A Score, And We Got Into A Beef"

Lefty: "That Aint A Hit"

Donnie: "If You Kill Somebody You Kill Somebody, Whats The Difference?"

Lefty: "No Donnie, You Dont Understand, It Aint That Simple, Thats Why I Gotta School You. Hittin A Guy On A Contract Is Alot Different Than Whackin A Guy Over A Beef, On A Beef You Got A Rage About The Guy, But On A Contract, You Might Have No Feelings One Way Or Another About The Guy, It Might Not Even Concern You Why The Guys Getting Hit, You Got To Be Able To Do It Just Like A Professional Job, With No Emotion At All. You Think You Could Do That?"

Donnie: "I Dont See Why Not"

Lefty: "Yeah Well, We'll See, Alot Of Guys Think Its Easy, Than They Freeze Up And Cant Do It. Generally You Use A 22 Caliber, A 22 Caliber Doesnt Make A Clean Hole Like Some Bigger Calibers, Just Right Behind The Ear, A 22 Ricchochets Around Your Skull, Tears Everything Up"

Benjamin "Lefty" Ruggiero (First Photo) teaching FBI undercover agent Joseph "Donnie Brasco" Pistone (Second Photo) about doing hits. They both were portrayed by "Al Pacino" & "Johnny Depp" in the movie "Donnie Brasco".

Donnie Brasco (1997):🇺🇸Mafia, policial.

Joe Pistone (Johnny Depp) es un agente del FBI que se infiltra en la mafia bajo el nombre de “Donnie Brasco”, con el fin de desbaratar la banda del temido Sonny Black (Michael Madsen). Al lograr entrar en el grupo, entabla una amistad con “Lefty” (Al Pacino), miembro menor de la banda pero con amplio conocimiento de la vida criminal. A medida que avanza la investigación, Donnie va convirtiéndose cada vez más en lo que juró combatir.
🥸
Mike Newell tiene una filmografía bien variada -desde Harry Potter hasta Cuatro bodas y un funeral-, y Donnie Brasco está entre lo mejor que ha logrado dirigir. Con un buen ritmo y actuaciones de lujo, la cinta se convirtió en un clásico del cine de mafia policial.
🥸
Nominada al Oscar por mejor guión adaptado, la película se centra en la doble vida de Donnie, ya sea con sus problemas a nivel familiar -la parte floja de la cinta- como así también con la paranoia que vive a diario, la línea entre vivir un día más o ser descubierto como “rata” y, por ende, ser liquidado. Lo que la pone por sobre la media del cine de mafia son dos cosas: la primera, es que está basada en una historia real, y bueeeno... a todos nos gustan las historias verídicas. La segunda son sus interpretaciones: y no es solo porque Depp logra uno de sus pocos papeles creíbles en el cine, si no que Al Pacino está sublime, interpretando al mafioso de menor rango del grupo, en el que todos buscan apoyo pero que nadie toma realmente en serio, excepto Donnie.
🥸
Donnie Brasco no es una película perfecta: pienso quizás que un director con más oficio en el cine de mafia (Scorsese, DePalma, Coppola) le podría haber dado una impronta más oscura y por ende madura, pero también creo que con lo que ofrece cumple bien. A veces no hay que ser tan exigente y disfrutar lo que hay, o como diría Donnie... “forget about it”.
Escenas preferidas? El final saca aplausos, y la escena del restaurant chino es lejos la más tensa.
DISPONIBLE EN LA NUBE!
NOTA: 8,5/10😀

Donnie Brasco is a crime drama film directed by Mike Newell, and starring Al Pacino and Johnny Depp.

The film, written by Paul Attanasio, is based on the 1988 nonfiction book Donnie Brasco: My Undercover Life in the Mafia by Joseph D. Pistone, and Richard Woodley.

The film is loosely based on the true story of Joseph Pistone (Depp), an FBI undercover agent who infiltrated the Bonanno crime family in New York City during the 1970s, under the alias Donnie Brasco. Brasco maneuvers his way into the confidence of an aging Mafia hitman, Lefty Ruggiero (Pacino), who vouches for him. As Donnie moves deeper into the Mafia, he realizes that not only is he crossing the line between federal agent and criminal, but also leading his friend Lefty to an almost certain death. Pistone must decide whether or not to complete his job, knowing that it will lead to the murder of his new friend.
Donnie Brasco premiered in Century City on February 24, 1997, and was released on February 28, 1997, by TriStar Pictures. The film was a box office success, earning $124.9 million against its $35 million budget, and received positive reviews from critics. The film was nominated for an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Oh my god guys 😲! What a book this was.

I had seen the movie but reading what this guy must have went through in the years he was undercover is just unimaginable! Such a brave thing to do and the stress levels for both him and his family must have been astronomical!
His life and his families life has been changed forever!! Absolutely swallowed up every page of this book! For fans of true crime and Mafia history this is a must read!!
