  1. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Carlito's Way

    Pacino and De Palma trying to escape the heritage of Scarface, to a society that embraced its extravagance and the kids who idolize the icon.

  2. Jim Fear's rating of the film Carlito's Way

  3. Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film Carlito's Way

    De Palma's best film. So well executed. A brilliant study of change and how you can't really escape your past and the consequences of your actions, whether good or bad your intentions are. Al Pacino shines, the soundtrack is on point, the camerawork is eclectic and the climax is for sure one of the most suspenseful scenes ever put to film. A masterpiece. I Absolutely recommend this one.

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Carlito's Way

    Pour une fois Brian de Palma n'est pas dans un cul-de-sac ! www.cinefiches.com

  6. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Carlito's Way

    De Palma shines when portraying violence and suspense. But when he tries to show romance, it sucks.

  8. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Carlito's Way

    Rewatched and re-loved. Brian de Palma is one of my favorite film directors.

  9. DenoResandono's rating of the film Carlito's Way

    Brian De Palma gave us a "near-death" scene in the opening. It was good. Why? Because it will keep intriguing us about what happened before (or next?). I will give two thumbs up to Al Pacino and Sean Penn. Mr. Pacino gave a dilemmatic performance as an ex-criminal who wants to be a good guy but it wasn't easy to do. Sean Penn, hmm, he's just a loveable maniac. I love the cinematography very much!

  10. film_lies101's rating of the film Carlito's Way

    Scarface is a cartoon, this is the real deal. Though Pacino's accent does give one the side eye at times

  14. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Carlito's Way

    A poor self parody performance from Pacino because s De Palma clearly told him to dial up the shouting and the bad Latino accent. I'm surprised how high the average rating is on this site....

  15. Steve G.'s rating of the film Carlito's Way

    Brian De Palma has never been anywhere near his best when working on gangster stuff, but Carlito's Way is a huge improvement on the ridiculous Scarface. Also contains his second best train station shoot-out.

  16. Oussssama's rating of the film Carlito's Way

    I've never really liked De Palma's stories, so I never got why he's considered one of the greats of his generation. But now I get it, what he does with a camera is just magnificent, those rotations especially. I had my jaw on the floor in that kissing scene after he breaks the door open

  17. Renton47's rating of the film Carlito's Way

    Carlito's is too much when it begins; the death, Pacino's narration, the courthouse scenes - this shouldn't work. But when we think we're out in comes the the pool-hall sequence and De Palma pulls us back in. Ever the consummate stylist, he makes this film so damn watchable, even more palatable by its contrast to the histrionics of Scarface. The last 30 mins feel like Back to the Future, but still, he sells it.

  18. J0NS's rating of the film Carlito's Way

  19. Gianpiero Mendini [cineddoche]'s rating of the film Carlito's Way

    Il virtuosismo di De Palma è tenuto a bada da una sceneggiatura perfetta, che alterna battute fulminanti a silenzi che valgono mille parole. Il sogno di Carlito Brigante, gangster uscito precocemente di prigione e che vuole rifarsi una vita, è ostacolato prima di tutto dal mondo che lo circonda e nel quale non si riconosce più. Uno dei capolavori degli anni '90. Pacino e Penn ai vertici delle rispettive carriere.

  20. CinemaDead's rating of the film Carlito's Way

    An operatic gangster, my favorite De Palma film of all time.

  21. galuh indri's rating of the film Carlito's Way

    Good cast but lack of something which I couldn't tell.

  22. John H. Nomedal's rating of the film Carlito's Way

    A former gangster changed for the better by a prison sentence meets his criminal past out on the streets and must deal with it. Weve heard it before but not seen it like this through the eyes of DePalma.With inner-monologs,elaborate staging and clean cut characters makes this into something more than a gangster story.It felt like a Scarface(1983)"sequel"just like JackKnife(1989) is a "sequel" toThe Deer Hunter(1978).

  23. Mr.Pacha's rating of the film Carlito's Way

  24. El Biffo's rating of the film Carlito's Way

    This is one of only 3 De Palma films I liked, even tho I still think they are all extremely cheezy, what some may call "guilty pleasures". No, I have not seen all of his films and I am not going to.
