Wasted Talent is a gritty documentary where director Steve Stanulis and producer Noel Ashman together examine the temptations and struggles many young celebrities go through on their rise to stardom. It focuses on the story of actor Lillo Brancato who was once considered to be the next Robert De Niro, after his huge success starring in the films A Bronx Tale(De Niro's directorial debut), Renaissance Man, Crimson Tide and the classic TV show The Sopranos. However, Brancato got trapped in the underworld of Hollywood instead becoming a drug addict culminating in his arrest for the murder of a new York city police officer on a drug excursion gone horribly wrong. Though Brancato was cleared of the murder charge, he still did eight and a half years in jail on an attempted burglary conviction. During his time in prison, the young actor was finally able to get clean and sober and is now struggling to redeem himself in the fickle world of entertainment.Written by

No review need: looser whines and weeps about being looser
The subject of this film is a junkie who was once an actor "filled with promise". He became an absolute looser junkie (heroin) pretty quick, becoming a gangster criminal closely follows. Put his entire life in the trash. He is behind this film, somehow, I suppose, hoping to make some money and get another chance. Trying to tell all of us that as a looser he had some hard time and made some bad choices, being a looser and all. Could all of youze guys gve me another chance? Anser: NO. Forget about it. This documentary is seriously unwatchable. Maybe if was about the actor, but it is a documentary driven and run by the actor/looser/junkie and some pathetic, dirty old man who was once a cop. Disgusting is the word on this bit of trash. Forget this guy. Forget this infomercial for junkies.
