Carlito’s Way

Friday, Nov 17 at 6:30 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

30th Anniversary Screenings!


Dir. Brian De Palma. 1993, 141 mins. 35mm. With Al Pacino, Sean Penn, Penelope Ann Miller, Luis Guzmán, John Leguizamo. In De Palma’s astonishingly well-crafted gangster tale, a kinetic reteaming of the director and star of Scarface, Pacino plays Carlito, a drug boss trying to go straight after his release from prison. Of course, his good intentions are doomed, mainly by his “friends”—including a repulsive crooked lawyer played brilliantly by Penn. Although marketed as a follow-up to Scarface, Carlito’s Way is a very different film, an emotional, humane thriller, suffused with an elegiac, world-weary tone. Cahiers du cinéma proclaimed it the best movie of the 1990s.
