"Donnie Brasco" DVD (Extended Cut) - Al Pacino, Johnny Depp
"Donnie Brasco" is one terrific movie" - Rolling Stone
Posing as hard-boiled jewel broker Donnie Brasco, FBI agent Joseph D. Pistone (Johnny Depp) gains entry into the brutal mob family of fading hitman Lefty Ruggero (Al Paccino), who treats Donnie like a son.
As their association deepens, Pistone's life begins to spiral downwards, placing everything that's meaningful to him - his marriage, his career and his life - in jeopardy.
Based on a memoir by former undercover cop Joe Pistone (whose daring and unprecedented infiltration of the New York Mob scene earned him a place in the federal witness protection program), "Donnie Brasco" is like a de-romanticized, de-mythologized version of "The Godfather".
It offers an uncommonly detailed, privileged glimpse inside the world of organized crime from the perspective of the little guys at the bottom of Mafia hierarchy rather than from the kingpins at the top.
"Donnie Brasco" is not only one of the great modern-day gangster movies to put in the company of "The Godfather" films and "Goodfellas", but it is also one of the great undercover police movies-- arguably surpassing "Serpico" and "Prince of the City" in richness of character, detail, and moral complexity.
From acclaimed director Mike Newell, and with a spectacular supporting cast, Michael Madsen, Bruno Kirby, James Russo and Anne Heche, "Donny Brasco" is a "First-class Mafia thriller" - San Francisco Chronicle.
This extended cut edition, superbly-acted, suspenseful, action crime movie DVD is now out of production.
