Pacino cans the showboating bluster and gives a gently nuanced portrait of a simple man in decline.
Perhaps the most impressive thing that Newell has done with Donnie Brasco is to cull an atypically low-key and introspective performance from Al Pacino, an actor known for manic, scenery-chewing efforts.

The violence in this movie is gruesome (a scene involving the disposal of bodies is particularly graphic). But the movie has many human qualities and contains what will be remembered as one of Pacino's finest scenes.
It's the electric interplay between Pacino and Depp that will make it a Mob movie classic.
