"A killer gangster picture!  Gene Shalit, Today Show
"...may rightfully take its place beside the best films of this genre.  Pat Collins, WWOR-TV
"Two thumbs up! Johnny Depp and Al Pacino have terrific chemistry...  Siskel & Ebert
"...a bang-up job of deglamorizing the mob.  Rita Kempley, Washington Post

Editor's Note
Joe Pistone (Johnny Depp) is an FBI mole who integrates himself into the Mafia pecking order by posing as "jewel man" Donnie Brasco. He finds his loyalties divided when Lefty Ruggiero, a jaded hit man, takes him on as a protégé and places real trust in him. The two men form a friendship--and a criminal partnership--that jeopardizes Brasco's mission and obscures the boundaries between the law and the underworld. The film is based on the autobiography DONNIE BRASCO, MY UNDERCOVER LIFE IN THE MAFIA by former undercover agent Joseph D. Pistone. Directed by Mike Newell (FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL) and also starring Bruno Kirby (THE FRESHMAN, THIS IS SPINAL TAP), Michael Madsen (RESERVOIR DOGS) and Anne Heche (WAG THE DOG).

Expert Review Donnie Brasco - DVD
By: Christopher Null filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 4/27/2007 7:26 PM
Well, someone had to wrest the monopoly on gangster movies from the hands of Scorsese and Coppola. So why not Mike Newell, of Four Weddings and a Funeral fame, to direct it? And why not put Johnny Depp in a starring role? And Anne Heche -- you know, Ellen's girlfriend -- as his wife!? It sounds bizarre, but put this group together with Monster of Acting Pacino and Quiz Show scribe Paul Attanasio and you've got a pleasant surprise on your hands, not to mention one of the longest-running films at the box office this year....read the full review

Professional Reviews

USA Today
"...Downbeat, dark-humored and disturbing....[The film] delivers the somber flipside to CASINO's snazzy high rollers..." -- 4 out of 4 stars 02/28/1997 p.1D

New York Times
"...Crackling good....The best crime movie in a long while....It's full of life..." 02/28/1997 p.C4

Entertainment Weekly
"...A wonderfully dense, clever, and moving gangland thriller....[An] engrossing movie..." -- Rating: A- 03/07/1997 p.44-5

Los Angeles Times
"...An ambitious film with an effective and modulated performance by Al Pacino..." 02/28/1997 p.F1

Chicago Sun-Times
"...For Johnny Depp, DONNIE BRASCO breaks new ground; he seems a little older here, a little wearier, and he makes the transition from stoolie to friend one subtle step at a time..." 02/28/1997 p.37

Ultimate DVD
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] thoughtful character study of male loyalty..." 07/01/2007 p.26

San Francisco Chronicle 9 of 10
The true soul of the New York mob is portrayed in Donnie Brasco, a first-class Mafia thriller that is also in its way a love story--perhaps director Mike Newell's best... The glitz and the clothes are synthetic, the smiles are fake, but the fears and the needs are real... - Mick LaSalle

The New York Times 8 of 10
... the crackling good Donnie Brasco, the best crime movie in a long while, is full of...surprises as it leads [Al] Pacino and Johnny Depp through a fine-tuned tale of deception.... In the end it's a sordid and deadly story. But along the way, it's full of life. - Janet Maslin
