That Moment In ‘Donnie Brasco’ When Donnie Keeps His Shoes On
Looking for a good mafia movie? “Fuggetaboutit.” Donnie Brasco is a 1997 biographical crime film about an FBI undercover agent who infiltrates the mob and finds he’s a little too good at his job, blurring the line between the two lives he’s living. Directed by Mike Newell, the film is loosely based on the real story of FBI undercover agent Joseph D. Pistone, and widely considered to be one of the best ever made in the genre – all due respect to Goodfellas – and earned heaps of critical praise. Raking in tons at the box office, the movie was a long time in the making and a cultural touchstone on release, introducing the now iconic quote from above and absolutely cementing that fact mafia movies are just way cool.
