One of Lorraine Bracco's Best
17 November 2013 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Lorraine Bracco is brilliant in her performance as Diane Giacalone, the New York Assistant Attorney who gets on the case of the Mafia boss, John Gotti.

She rails against the romanticization of the Mafia's image in movies and fiction, furious at the portrayal of godfathers and that Italy, who gave the world Michaelangelo, Verdi, Puccini and da Vinci now has to bear the responsibility of these useless criminal half-wits who can't earn a living without hitting people.

Anthony John Denison is also good as the thug Gotti, and Ellen Burstyn is great as her ill mother. The entire cast is outstanding in this fact based drama which outlines the battle between Giacalone and Gotti.

The only weakness is the portrayal of an out of control court with the noticeable lack of objections to the noise and contempt shown by a passive judge.

And the ending. Weak.

Worth seeing.

6 out of 10.
