Set model for Carlito's Way (1993)


Carlito's Way follows a long pattern of Latinx representation onscreen, where Hollywood more often than not turned to white actors to portray brown characters. Al Pacino, plays a Puerto Rican man named Carlito (ten years after he portrayed Cuban drug lord Tony Montana in Brian De Palma’s 1983 film Scarface) who keeps getting caught back up in the same cycle of crime that he vowed to escape.
