Film information

Story: Trilogy of crime dramas. 'Donnie Brasco' (1997) is set in late 1970s New York. FBI agent Joe Pistone (Johnny Depp) goes undercover to infiltrate the Mafia, befriending ageing hitman Lefty Ruggerio (Al Pacino), who inducts him into the ways of the Mob. As Donnie Brasco, Pistone becomes immersed in the Mafia world of violence, but at the same time comes to regard Lefty as a friend. He knows that when his assignment is over and his cover blown, it will mean certain death for the man who has taken him under his wing. 'Charlie' (2004) is a London gangster film based on the story of real life gang boss Charlie Richardson (played by ex-Bros star Luke Goss), who, along with his brother Eddy (Langley Kirkwood), ruled the criminal underworld of South London in the early 1960s. As Charlie gets increasingly powerful, he becomes involved with white South African businessman Richard Waldeck (Leslie Grantham), and ends up being party to political crimes against members of the ANC. In 1966 Charlie is caught and put on trial, but the witnesses who testify at his court case are gruesomely punished by his gang, leading to the judge handing down a 25-year sentence in what became known as the 'Torture Trial'. 'Traffic' (2000) is Steven Soderbergh's ambitious attempt to map out the different aspects of the illegal drug trade. The film won four Oscars, including Best Director and Best Supporting Actor for Benicio del Toro. Set in San Diego, the film follows a pair of undercover DEA agents (Don Cheadle and Luis Guzmán) who are doing their best to bring drug baron Carlos Ayala (Steven Bauer) to trial. Across the border in Mexico, police officer Javier Rodriguez (Benicio del Toro) joins the National Drug Force, a special unit commanded by General Salazar (Tomas Milian) and charged with bringing down the local Obregon drug cartel. Ayala's wife Helena (Catherine Zeta Jones) travels to Tijuana to meet Obregon representatives and strikes a deal intended to save her husband's life. Rodriguez begins to suspect that the Task Force has undeclared connections to the supposedly defunct Juarez cartel, the major rivals to the Obregons. Salazar meanwhile meets with US drug czar Robert Wakefield (Michael Douglas), a man whose dedication to his work blinds him to the fact that his own daughter is gradually sliding into drug addiction.
