kudos for original list maker mentioning Carlito's Way and NOT Scarface.
granted, I like the latter. when I'm angry it's a movie that gets my jices flowing, but all things considered it's very one-dimensional. No reason for it to be three hours long outside of the fact that De Palma probably figured American audiences assumed longer=avant garde.
His rise to power was nothing more than a montage and his fall from grace comes out of nowhere and very abruptly.
Really if you approach the movie for what it is, eye candy with catchy one liners, it's a good time. But there's nothing to worship about it.
Carlito's Way was much better.

I think I've seen them both (once each, a while ago), but I'll be there for sure.
