6º – The Leopard (Luchino Visconti, 1963)Taking shape during the second half of the 19th century, the film brings the story of an aristocrat on his ultimate journey to maintain the conditions of his family and, at the same time, adapt to the imminent changes the country will make. ‘The Leopard’ is impeccable in its aesthetic scope, telling a story that exposes all the layers of thinking of the human being. One of the great performances of the legendary Burt Lancaster’s career is still worth mentioning.
5º – Carlito’s Way (Brian De Palma, 1993)In the plot, a middle-aged man, wrapped all his life in crime, is released from prison and promises himself that he will stay away from the crooked ways of the world and lead an honest life. However, the past will hatch several times in a man’s life, with people and cases that will force him to return to the world of crime. ‘Carlito’s Way’ marks the epic reunion of Brian De Palma and Al Pacino after the wonderful ‘Scarface’. Here, we will not have anything close to the previous contribution between the two, with a film more focused on transposing to the viewer the dramas of a character condemned for wrong choices of his journey in the world. A good film that is certainly worth its 144 minutes of duration.
