Carlito's Way

Watched Carlito's Way DVD.

Beautifully shot, this movie fills in a lot of blanks in rap songs, like the Benny Blanco references in rap songs like (Jay-Z's "Bring It On" (my favourite song of his—mostly for the beat, I admit—drops at least 4 references to movie gangsters, including Blanco). A long movie, and the end was especially suspensful, since we knew how Carlito met his fate, just not when and by whom until the end.
