October 05, 2005 A great story told by a master filmmaker; sterling actors playing some truly fascinating characters; and a bunch of cinematic set-pieces that are worthy of repeat viewings.Read in Source
July 30, 2012 Perhaps the last great DePalma film, using his trademarks well but not overusing them.Read in Source
September 09, 2006 As with so many De Palma films, Carlito's Way soon manifests as an essay on its own forms.Read in Source
June 24, 2006 Pacino looks every inch a movie star, and De Palma provides a timely reminder of just how impoverished the Hollywood lexicon has become since the glory days of the '70s.Read in Source
