In his second virtuoso reworking of the gangster mythos in partnership with Brian De Palma, Pacino stars as a Spanish Harlem former drug dealer trying to go straight as a disco club owner. He brings profound melancholy and vulnerability to this tortured soul, ricocheting beautifully off Sean Penn’s nervy shyster lawyer, John Leguizamo’s volatile rival, and Penelope Ann Miller’s angelic stripper ex.
