#5. Donnie Brasco
A mid-nineties high for Depp as he proved he was capable of playing it straight in this entertaining gangster tale of trust, respect, and self-conflict. With director Mike Newell behind the lens and screen legend Al Pacino in one of his best post-Oscar roles stealing scenes, Depp delivers a fine performance to hold his own. In my opinion, this is the better of Depp’s forays into gangster territory, the other being Michael Mann’s Public Enemies.
