...a colorful melodrama set in the Latino mob world of the mid-1970s.
Utterly compelling mob-flick with Brian De Palma and Al Pacino re-teaming a decade after Scarface.
The acting here, by Sean Penn, is a virtuoso tour de force - one of those performances that takes on a life of its own.
It sings, dances, punches, slinks, embeds. It moves like the luxurious tracking shots that punctuate the film.
