Charles Officer on Carlito’s Way

TIFF 2020 is upon us, and writer-director Charles Officer — whose gangland drama Akilla’s Escape makes its world premiere at the festival on Saturday, September 12th, and who also narrates The New Corporation: The Unfortunately Necessary Sequel — is here to talk about Carlito’s Way, the 1993 thriller that reunited the Scarface team of producer Martin Bregman, director Brian De Palma and star Al Pacino for a rather more thoughtful take on gangster pictures. Your genial host Norm Wilner has some thoughts on Sean Penn’s hair.
