Donnie Brasco (DVD, 2000)
Pretty intense movie about an FBI agent, Joe Pistone, who goes undercover to infiltrate the New York mob. He goes under as Donnie Brasco (Johnny Depp), a sometimes jeweler. He makes a friend of notorious hit man Lefty Ruggiero by helping him collect on a debt stemming from a fake ring that he took in lieu of cash, supposedly worth more than $6000. Ruggiero (Al Pacino) openly admits to Donny that after more than twenty years in the life, and after twenty-six hits, he still has to make his weekly "Bic", payment to the boss, or he is in big trouble. As a wiseguy, if you don't earn you can end up dead. For his help with the debt, Ruggiero introduces Donny as a "friend of his". This means that he is now connected to Ruggiero. His foot is in the door. This relationship grows until he is not only a friend of Ruggiero, but an associate to the crew, and finally, during a trip to Florida, Donny is introduced to Santo Trafficante, as an "Associate of Ours" by the boss. This is the final step. You can't get any deeper. This process has taken two years and his wife is at her wits end. Donny's wife, Anne Heche, is practically ready for a divorce. From being in so deep for so long, he is starting to act just like the gangsters, hot headed, quick tempered, etc. When it all comes to a head, Donnie tries to get Lefty to split with money that Donny kept when their Florida deal got busted. Lefty is now suspicious of Donny and from what I understood, Donny might have been close to getting "clipped". The undercover operation ends and lots of inditements are handed down. This is a true story. Johnny Depp is a capable actor. His talents are wide ranging. Al Pacino adds a serious element to his character as well. This crime drama is worth watching.Read full review
