Carlito's Way (1993) ****

Underrated "gangster" film.
As far as De Palma goes, I'll take this over Scarface any day.
Pacino's Carlito has so much more charisma, spirit and love than Tony Montana.
He's also trying to get out of his "business", not rise to power.
The tragedy is that he could not escape his lifestyle, no matter how legitimately he tried.
