Its fair to say Carlito’s Way (1993) is one of if not my favourite film, so seeing it arrive on 4K Ultra HD + standard blu-ray this week in the UK has me eager to watch it again. It had previously been available on blu-ray, however that release was a disgrace as no restoration work had been carried out. In fact it was little better than the DVD version.
So this new 4K + Standard blu-ray should finally give us the version we all deserve. For those not familiar with the film it’s a crime drama directed by Brian De Palma and stars Al Pacino / Sean Penn.
Al Pacino plays a reformed drug dealer, Carlito Brigante that finds out it’s not easy to go straight as everyone seems to want to drag him back into the world of crime.
Meanwhile Carlito’s lawyer David Kleinfeld (Sean Penn) the man responsible for his release from prison seems to have problems of his own and enlists the help of Carlito. It really is a great film and one I highly recommend giving a look when it releases on Monday 25th October 2021.
