Critic Reviews of "Donnie Brasco"VarietyNovember 20, 2008
Although perhaps familiar in its outer trappings, Pacino's fine work is the key to the film succeeding to the extent that it does.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
A tense, sharp and compelling character study, Newell's film is a worthy addition to the Mob-movie canon.Washington PostAugust 14, 2002
Unfortunately, the story isn't inventive and Newell's methodical approach to it verges on monotony.San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
A first-class Mafia thriller that is also, in its way, a love story.Globe and MailApril 12, 2002
In the tired figure of Lefty, manifest in the craggy icon of Pacino, our sympathies are definitely enlisted, and the theme rings a poignant note.Rolling StoneMay 11, 2001
Pacino and Depp are a match made in acting heaven, riffing off each other with astonishing subtlety and wit.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsJanuary 29, 2010
A gritty and humorous crime drama about an undercover cop infiltrating the Mafia.TV GuideJune 20, 2009
Depp's tight, guarded performance is almost painful to watch, and Newell seems to have reined in the flamboyant Pacino, whose portrait of the mobster as a grumpy old man may be his best work in years.Film4June 20, 2009
It's tempting to think Pacino stopped trying sometime in the mid-1980s. But watch Lefty's elegiac final scene and you might conclude that it's not Al's ability that's dimmed, rather it's the imagination of casting directors that's grown stale.eFilmCritic.comJuly 30, 2007
[Newell and Attanasio] pay as much attention to emotional details as to the clockwork details of mob life.FulvueDrive-in.comMay 09, 2007
Just misses ranking in the upper echelon of mob movies.TheMovieReport.comSeptember 17, 2005
A classy piece of work that may disappoint those looking for something more conventional.
